Beijing – Zhangjiajie High Speed Trains

Currently, Changsha – Zhangjiajie High Speed Railway is under construction and may be put into service in 2021. After its completion, Beijing and Zhangjiajie will be connected by high speed trains, by then a single trip will take 6.5 – 9 hours only, which saves a lot of time.

Beijing – Zhangjiajie Train vs. Flight

Only 2 direct flights are operated between the two cities, taking around 2 hours. Even in low season, the ticket fare for an economy class seat may be CNY 850 or so. If pressed for time, passengers can also make a flight transfer in Changsha and catch a train or bus to Zhangjiajie. In this case, there will be more choices and ticket price won’t be too high, especially in peak season.

In contrast, a rail trip costs less, but it takes a longer time. Although passengers can buy a sleeper to lie down onboard, the long-distance journey is not suitable for those who are pressed for time. Budget travelers with more time can choose to make a rail ride and they have a chance to see the beautiful scenery along the way.

Is there anyone know about Qianyuan Hotel?
Is this hotel a good choice? Which station is closer and convenient for transfer? Beijing or Beijing West.

See from the reviews, this hotel should be a good one. I am considering it too or a hostel instead like Red Lantern House. It is closer to Beijing Railway Station, about 6km. You can take a taxi or maybe metro line 2.

No, it depends on which train will you take. K967 and K473 depart from the main station and K267 departs from the West Station.

Traveling Beijing-Zhangjiajie soft sleeper, can I book at station on day rather than ahead

Answered by Wesley | May. 20, 2019 18:38

It is a little bit risky as sometimes soft sleeper bed can be sold out on some of these rides. YOu can check the ticket availability often and decide accordingly.

Can I collect the tickets from Changsha to Zhangjiajie in Beijing as well?
Or I have to do it again after I reach Changsha?

Answered by Denny H. from GREECE | Apr. 12, 2019 04:39

It is no problem to collect tickets for both sections in Beijing before your departure and yes, it is recommended to do so. Otherwise, we will have problem for queue again at Changsha Station. It will be a waste of time.
