Harbin-Shenyang High-Speed Trains vs Normal-Speed Trains

If you have a tight schedule, the high-speed trains between Harbin and Shenyang have a running time of 2 hours and are highly recommended. If you want to experience a slow China train trip, you can buy a sleeper ticket to enjoy the time.

Compared with the normal-speed option, the high-speed train option between the two cities is a better one. The high-speed trains are faster and the facilities on the trains are much better. What's more, the high-speed trains are always punctual.

For a trip that's longer than 5 hours, it is better to book a higher standard of ticket as the trip will be more comfortable. Therefore, it is advisable to book at least a hard sleeper (there are six bunks in one room) for a long journey on a normal-speed train.

The normal-speed trains are all air-conditioned with a pillow and blanket included for each bunk.
