The Beijing to Hong Kong Through Train is the train service operating every second day from Beijing West Railway Station to Hung Hom Station of Hong Kong via Guangzhou East Railway Station. It runs along the Beijing–Guangzhou Railway Line and the Guangzhou–Shenzhen Railway Line in mainland China as well as the East Rail Line in Hong Kong.
The train departs from Beijing West at 13:00 and arrives at Kowloon Hung Hom of Hong Kong at 13:01 next day. It makes calls at Zhengzhou, Wuchang, Changsha and Guangzhou East along its way. The total travel time is about one whole day.
There are hard seats, soft seats, hard sleepers, soft sleepers, and deluxe soft sleepers, which are two-berth sleeper cabins with a private bathroom on the train. The train also has a restaurant car, where passengers can select food and drinks according to the menu, as well as a food and drink cart on each car. Special toilets are available for handicapped people on the train.
Though there is a 60-day pre-sell period for the tickets they are still hard to get, especially during Chinese New Year, May Day and the National Holiday; as a result, it’s highly advisable for passengers to book tickets as soon as possible. Children under 110 cm tall travel free; 110–150 cm tall kids travel for half fare, and children over 150 cm tall require full fare.
