Sections

Jingguang High Speed Railway consists of four sections:

Second Class Seat
Second Class Seat
  Beijing-Shijiazhuang-Zhengzhou Section: 
This section has a length of 693 km (431 miles), going across 14 stations, including Beijing West, Zhuozhou East, Gaobeidian East, Baoding East, Zhengding Airport, Shijiazhuang, Gaoyi West, Xingtai East, Handan East, Anyang East, Hebi East, Xinxiang East, and Zhengzhou East. With its operation, the travel time has been reduced to 1 - 2 hours  from Beijing to Shijiazhuang and 2.5 - 4 hours to Zhengzhou.

 Zhengzhou-Wuhan Section: 
With its operation, the travel time between Wuhan and Zhengzhou has been reduced from 4 - 8 hours to about 1.5 - 3.5 hours. Additionally, it takes only about 4 - 6 hours between Beijing and Wuhan via the high speed rail. It runs for 536km (333 miles) with 8 stations, namely Zhengzhou East, Xuchang East, Luohe West, Zhumadian West, Minggang East, Xinyang East, Xiaogan North, and Hengdian East.

  Wuhan-Guangzhou High Speed Railway
This section is 968 km (601 miles) in length via 16 stations, including Wuhan, Xianning North, Chibi North, Yueyang East, Miluo East, Changsha South, Zhuzhou West, Hengshan West, Hengyang East, Leiyang West, Chenzhou West, Shaoguan, Yingde West, Qingyuan, Guangzhou North, and Guangzhou South. Travel time has been shortened from 11 - 19 hours to 3.5 -5 hours or so between the two cities.

  Guangzhou-Shenzhen High Speed Railway:
This line connects Guangzhou South Station and Shenzhen North Station. It can finish the 102 km (63 miles) trip in about half an hour. There are another 4 stations along this section, including  Qingsheng Station, Humen Station, Guangmingcheng Station and Futian Station.
 Considering economic issues, it is better to choose the bullet train for a comparatively short journey and take a flight for a long journey. For example, the rail journey from Beijing to Zhengzhou only takes about 2 hours and the price for a second class seat is CNY310, usually cheaper than a flight. However, Beijing to Guangzhou flight is recommended if discounted air ticket is available, since the duration is only about 3 hours; if traveling by high speed rail, it takes at least 8 hours and costs CNY862 for a second class seat. However, the overnight bullet trains are good choices to save daytime and hotel expense although they take 10-11 hours on the way.

Compared with bullet ones, they run at a much lower speed of 99 mi/h (160 km/h) or 75 mil/h (120 km/h) and take longer time on the way. In the case, you’d better book a sleeper, so that you can have a good rest to travel energetically upon arrival.

    You guys are very easy to contact and quickly to reply my question on Wechat. Honestly, you should have more instructions on where the ticket counter is on your web. It is luckily we got there early enough. Otherwise, we may miss our first high-speed train to Guangzhou.

    I have booked the train tickets 1 day before my travel date, the tickets were available, but the seats were separated, they said if I booked earlier, I would get seats in one row. However, I managed to change the seat with another guy and finally had two seats together. The train ride was great.
