Travel Tips

Changsha South Railway Station and Kunming South Railway Station are only used for high speed trains, while Changsha Station and Kunming Station are main stations in the city center for normal speed trains. Sometimes, you need to make the transfer from one station to another by subway or shuttle bus. If the train schedule is not suitable, flights between two cities can also be your choice.

If travelling from Changsha to Kunming at the South Railway Station, it's advised to enter the station from the east square, as the distance between the security checkpoint and check-in gate is reduced by half.

Yes, sure. Passengers can walk from carriage 1 to 8, and 9 to 16. So it is not a problem. If you are lucky enough, you may find other passengers who are kind enough to change seats with you.

Is it better to use train or flight?

It depends on your travel date. If there is a discount flight ticket, I will use flight. I checked that sometimes the flight ticket is lower than CNY500 and it is faster! Full price flight ticket is over CNY1400, if so, definitely high speed ride.

The high speed rides usually hardly delays, so 30min between two trips would be fine if you collect the paper tickets for both trips in advance. If you are worried about the delay or finding direction in stations etc., you may prepare longer time.
