By Train or By Plane

Flying is still a very popular way to travel between Beijing and Guangzhou. And it is the fastest way (only takes 3.5 hours). Sometimes a discounted flight ticket is even cheaper than a second class ticket on a high-speed train.

The cheapest way of moving between Beijing and Guangzhou would be taking a normal train. The hard sleeper costs US$63 per ticket; soft sleeper is US$110 per ticket. However, normal trains are time-consuming and could take around 22 hours on the way. If you take a normal overnight train, soft sleeper class or superior soft sleeper class is recommended. They are comfortable and can save you a night's hotel bill.

Overnight bullet trains from Beijing to Guangzhou are also a good choice. They are newer, faster and smoother than normal overnight trains.
