Travel Tips

If your budget is limited, you could consider taking an overnight normal-speed train. The price of a sleeper ticket is much cheaper than a high-speed train ticket.

You can also consider taking a flight. Over 10 pairs of flights operate between Guangzhou and Jinan every day and the journey duration is about 3 hours. The full airfare is about 1,650 CNY (236 USD).

However, you can check to see if there are any discounts in advance. Sometimes, you can find very good discounts, such as 80% off in April 2020.
