Tianjin–Guangzhou Flights vs High-Speed Trains

Currently, flights are the fastest way to travel between Tianjin and Guangzhou. It will take about 3 hours for a single journey. The full price for an economy ticket is more than 300 USD.

Because of the shorter duration time, flights are still a very attractive option even if the ticket price is usually higher. For travelers with a tight schedule and a sufficient budget, flights are the best option.

If you prefer to travel on the high-speed trains, you can consider transferring from Beijing or Changsha instead. There are more options between the Tianjin–Beijing–Guangzhou route and the Tianjin–Changsha–Guangzhou route.

If the arrival and departure station is the same for the connection train, there will be a transfer route at the train station. You can connect to the second train without checking out and checking in again. For transfers in the same train station, it is necessary to leave at least one hour between the two trains.
