Hong Kong to Hangzhou by Train or by Plane?


The flight ticket from Hong Kong to Hangzhou or Hangzhou to Hong Kong costs USD 200 to USD 300, higher than a second-class ticket on a high-speed train. However, when airline companies have good discounts on airfare, taking a plane can be cheaper than taking a train.

Travel Time

The travel time from Hong Kong to Hangzhou by airplane is about 3 hours, which is undoubtedly the fastest way to travel between these two cities. However, if counting in the transfer time to/from airports, and the time reserved for boarding, the total travel time may be more than 6 hours.


Airplanes are sometimes delayed due to weather conditions. High-speed trains are usually 99% punctual.

Travel Experience

Traveling by train can be more comfortable and fun. The space between seats on the train is more spacious than on an airplane. Electronic devices can be used all the time during your rail travel. And you can walk around on the train to stretch your legs and enjoy window views.
