Train or Airplane - Which Is Better?

Which one is better depends on the reason you are traveling.

If you are traveling for business, an airplane is better because it is the fastest mode of transportation from Wuhan to Lanzhou or vice versa. Airfares can be competitive when there are discounts.

If you are traveling as a tourist, it is better to take a high-speed train. This is because it's fast, you can enjoy the views from the windows during the journey, and the price is reasonable.

It is not recommended to take a normal-speed train, however, as the journey takes too long and the facilities and environment on these trains are not very good.
