Train Travel Tips

The Yuelu AcademyYuelu Academy of Changsha

With the development of China's high-speed railway, the trains run much faster than before. In the time it takes a normal-speed train to travel one way, a bullet train can do the journey both ways.

The ticket price is also cost-effective (a second-class ticket is 314 CNY (45 USD)). It is highly recommended to take a high-speed train to travel between Guangzhou and Changsha.
