Part of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway, the Wuhan-Guangzhou section was officially put into operation on December 26, 2009. The history of China's bullet trains was opened into a new page. After the launch of the high-speed rail, passengers are able to take bullet trains very conveniently, just like taking buses, cutting the transportation time short while lowering the costs (compared to flights).

Stations on the Guangzhou-Wuhan High Speed Rail Line

Bullet trains run from Wuhan to Guangzhou for about 1070 kilometers (665 miles), passing through the three provinces of Hubei, Hunan and Guangdong. The time from Wuhan to Guangzhou will be shortened from 11 hours to only 3 hours.

Adopting the most advanced technologies in the world, the bullet trains run at a speed of 350 kilometers (220 miles) per hour.

How to Buy a Bullet Train Ticket

Tickets for the new bullet train can be bought at train stations or booked through a travel agency. Bullet train tickets are available for sale 10 days before departure. You may need to book your tickets in advance on weekends or during the major Chinese holidays such as the Chinese New Year and National Day. From June 1, 2011, passengers need to present their valid ID (passport) to buy bullet train tickets (including tickets of C trains, D trains, and G trains).
