Beijing – Hohhot Train vs. Flight

If you travel by rail, especially by overnight sleeper trains departing in the evening and arriving in the morning, you can save one-night accommodation fee and the day time. It is suitable to budget travelers. High speed trains have been the choice of most people which take less time and has a moderate cost.

As an alternative, passengers can also travel by flight. It takes about an hour for this journey, but there are only 9 direct flights per day and flight ticket costs more than rail ticket. Weather change can easily lead to flight delays, which may cause a waste of time.

The hostel is much closer to Hohhot Station, about 1.5km. If you like, you can go by walking. It should be about 20min walking. And in fact this maybe the most efficient way as you hardly find a taxi for this short distance trip.

If I reach Beijing Station at 4:27am, can I stay in the station for K3 until 7:27am?
I will be taking K56 and arrive at 4:27am, the time is enough for K3 right?

You need to be one hour in advance for K3 trip, so 3 hours between should be enough. The railway station work 24 hours a day, so it is fine to stay there. By the way, you may consider to take the train K3 from Jining South instead of Beijing as well which is closer to Hohhot.
