Train or Airplane- Which Is Better?

Which is better depends on what your travel for.

If you are traveling for business because it is the fastest mode from Wuhan to Kunming or vice versa. Airfares can be competitive when there are discounts.

If you are traveling as a tourist, it is better to take a high-speed train. This is because it’s fast, you can enjoy the views from the windows during the journey, and the price is reasonable.

But it is not recommended to take the normal-speed trains as it takes too long on trains and the facilities and environment is not good enough.
