Guangzhou Railway Station is one of the rail transportation hubs in China. The 'Guangzhou-Shenzhen', 'Beijing-Guangzhou' and 'Guangzhou-Sanshui' railways meet here. The old site of the Railway Station was set up at Dashatou, which was the terminal of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway. In 1951, it was moved to Baiyun Lu. In 1974, the new station was opened. At the very beginning, there are 35 couples of trains to go to or from it. In 1974, the station was newly built on the Huanshi Xi Lu, northwest of the city. On April 4, 1979, the first through train between the city to Kowloon ran from here. Until 1998, the terminal of these through trains was changed to be East Railway Station in Tianhe District. At present, Guangzhou Railway Station provides the trips to Beijing, Zhuhai, Shenzhen, Maoming, Wuhan, Nanjing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Hanzhong, Wenzhou, Xiangfan, Xian, and Lhasa and  many other Chinese mainland cities.

The Yuehai Railway passes through this station, which connects the city with Sanya. This cross-sea railway brings much convenience to the tourists, who want to go to Sanya by train. At present, there are three trains each day to Sanya, including Trains No.K512, T202 and K408.

Ticket demand always exceeds supply when the Spring Festival and the other national holidays are coming. Usually, railway stations sell tickets four days ahead of your departure date, while ticket agencies start to sell ten days (the departure date counted in) in advance. Anyway, the situation is not always the same. You'd better inquire the related information as early as possible.
