Obviously, Z307/Z308 takes less time and costs less. So if possible, it should be a preferable choice. Besides, a sleeper is advised when you travel by normal types because the journey is long and a sleeper will guarantee you a place to have a rest.

Major cities along the way:

Being famous for Yellow Mountain, Huangshan city is a hot tourist destination at the southernmost tip of Anhui Province. Except the beautiful natural sceneries, the city also has many ancient streets and towns such as Shexian County, Chengkan Villages, Tunxi Ancient Street, Hongcun and Xidi Villages and Huizhou Ancient City. Currently, you can go to Huangshan easily either by railroad or by air. The bullet trains from Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities are preferable among the travelers.
 As an important seaport and one of the three central cities in Fujian Province, Quanzhou is a famous cultural and historical city with mild climate. You can find many historical sites there, including Kaiyuan Temple, Heavenly Empress (Tianhou) Palace, Qingjing Mosque and other natural beauties such as Mt. Qingyuan and Mt Zimao. Transportation from this city is pretty convenient. Flights, trains, ships and city buses are all available for your convenience.


Except the rail travel, you can also choose the flight which just takes 3 - 4 hours. But even in low season, the flight ticket will cost more than rail ticket.

Questions & Answers on Beijing - Xiamen Train
Asked by Stacy | Sep. 17, 2019 03:41Reply
Can we choose beds in same soft sleeper compartment?
We are looking for train Z307 to Xiamen North. As we are a couple with our 10 years old boy, we need to make sure we will stay together. If possible, a private soft sleeper compartment of our own will be prefect! If we cannot stay together, we will change to flight instead. Please let us know if this is possible, thank you.

You can use North Station Tourist Express to Zengcuoan. The hotel is about 700m for walking, the bus ticket price is CNY15 per person. By taxi it is more convenient but much more expensive, it may cost around CNY100.

You can still use metro line 1 directly. The last train of line 1 is at 10:30pm. You can take line 1 from the North Station to Jiangjunci directly. The hotel is about 900m away from metro station exit No. 1. You can walk to reach the hotel.
