Train Travel Tips

The journey between the two cities on a high-speed train takes about 10 hours, which is also quite a long time. During the shoulder or low season, you can also consider buying a flight ticket in advance.

Sometimes, the discounts can be quite good and the airfare may even be lower than the price of a bullet train ticket. It only takes about 2 hours to travel between the cities by airplane.

If your budget is limited, you can consider taking a normal-speed overnight train. Several of these trains take over 27 hours to complete the journey, which means taking up 2 days of your time.
