Flights vs Trains Journeys between Harbin and Qingdao

It is a very long journey between Harbin and Qingdao by railway. For high speed trains, it is better to book a higher standard ticket to make the trip more comfortable. A first class seat will provide more leg room than an economic second class seat on fast trains. And for overnight sleeper trains, it is better to book a sleeper ticket. The journey is hard without sleeper.

The full price is about 200 USD for an economic seat on Harbin-Qingdao flight. The flight price is similar with the first class seat cost on high-speed train. However a single trip of flight will take about 2 hours only. If airlines offer good discount, it can be the most competitive option for traveling between the cities by flight.
