Tianjin-Changsha Trains vs Flights

Normal-speed overnight trains between Tianjin and Changsha are preferable options for budget travelers. The trains will save one night’s hotel bill. Please note that a sleeper ticket will make the trip more comfortable.

For long-distance train journeys, you can take some snacks and food, such as instant noodles, and some drinks for the trip. The overnight sleeper trains have a dining car and food trolleys so you can purchase some food and drinks with Chinese cash.

However, there aren’t many choices of food and the prices are a bit higher than the shops.

Direct flights are available between Changsha and Tianjin daily, with a flight time of about 2½ hours for a single journey. A flight ticket is usually higher but it can be competitive as well if a good discount is offered by the airline.
