Tianjin–Shenzhen Trains vs Flights

The choices between Tianjin and Shenzhen trains are limited. Considering the duration and departure time, traveling between the cities by train is not really a good option.

Generally speaking, taking a flight will be a better choice for a long journey. Currently, more than 10 pairs of flights operate daily. A single journey takes about 3 hours. If you have limited time and enough money, it is advisable to take a flight.
