The stopovers along the way include Zhengzhou, Wuchang, Changsha, and Guangzhou East stations within Mainland China, and passengers can get on and off at these stations. However, passengers traveling through between the two cities should have their travel documents (ticket, valid passport, and visa) checked at the Entry and Exit Office at Beijing West or Hung Hom stations, and are not allowed to get off the coach on the way.

Passengers are advised to get to Hung Hom Station 45 minutes in advance of the departure time for the exit formalities. The boarding gates close 10 minutes before departure from Hung Hom station. 

From Beijing West Station, passengers should enter from the Immigration Inspection Hall and get on board after the check. The hall is located at the right side of the entrance. The waiting area opens 120 minutes before departure; customs examination begins 90 minutes before scheduled departure time; the boarding gate closes 20 minutes before departure. Thus, passengers are advised to arrive at the station at least 1.5 hours in advance.
 

How to Buy a Ticket

Tickets can be bought either in Beijing or Hong Kong by presenting valid passports or ID cards; or more easily, from a travel agency like TravelChinaGuide to save you time and trouble.

 In Beijing, the tickets are on sale from 09:00, 00 days before departure at the West Station. Beijing Railway Station and the South Railway Station also have special sales windows in their ticket offices. However, group tickets and deluxe soft sleeper tickets for Z97 can only be issued in the West Station. Return tickets are available at windows No.1 and No.2 on the first floor and at the group ticket window on the second floor of the ticket office of the West Station. Ticket outlets in the city and airports do not sell tickets to Hong Kong. Discounts are offered when purchasing tickets on the spot in this city.

    Travel China Guide offers not only guided tours. We have used them to book many train tickets. On each occasion, the tickets were booked according to our instructions and delivered as promised to hotels. We would definitely recommend their services and will be using them in the future.

    We have travelled through China by train, it was a huge relief to have all the tickets booked in advance, and it was easy to pick the tickets at the stations. Travel China Guide had resolved a booking mistake I made as well. Great service!
