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 about 5 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.

Bike on slow train
Can I take a boxed bike on a slow train, as luggage?
Answers (1)
Answered by Sammi | Jul. 31, 2020 02:10

It is not allowed to take the bike on the train directly, even the folded one. But you can take it as a checked luggage.
Actually, the policy may be different from each station, you'd better ask the train station staff about this.

May I know which station is closer to Lemongo Youth Hostel Hohhot?
Answers (1)
Answered by Barry from MALAYSIA | Sep. 10, 2019 17:31

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.
Asked by Caiden from AUSTRALIA | Nov. 23, 2018 00:58Reply
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?
Answers (1)
Answered by Krista | Nov. 25, 2018 16:33

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.
