Harbin-Changchun High-Speed Trains vs Normal-Speed Trains

If you have a tight schedule, high-speed trains are highly recommended. They take less time and the facilities on board are much better. They're also punctual in most cases.

Between the high-speed trains, D trains are cheaper than G trains. However, D trains only have first-class and second-class seats. If you prefer a higher class seat for the trip, you can book a G train.

If you prefer a convenient transfer to and from the train stations, you can book a train that operates at either Harbin Railway Station or Changchun Railway Station, or both. These stations are located in the city centers; therefore, it is easy to reach them using public transportation.

If you want to spend the least amount of money when booking the trip, you can take a normal-speed train. You can book a hard seat and you won't find the journey to be uncomfortable because the travel time is less than 3 hours.
