Station Plan

Chaoshan Railway Station consists of two one-storey terminal buildings and squares on the north and south sides. The North terminal is the main building. There are ticket offices in both terminals and passengers can enter and exit from both as well. The two terminals are connected by an underground passageway.

How to enter the station and get onboard

With your paper ticket in hand, you can go through the security check and enter the terminal building. Afterwards, find the waiting area and platform of your train by checking the information on the LED screen in the waiting hall. The ticket check and boarding usually begins around 15 minutes before departure. If you do not have a paper ticket, obtain one at the ticket office before entering the station.

On arrival, passengers will be directed to the exit channel. Both North and South exits can be used.

Do you have the schedule of the bus ?
Can i buy the train ticket to and fro from the first station?
Answered by Jase from DENMARK | Oct. 17, 2019 19:33

Sorry, I do not know about bus schedule but I suppose the shuttle bus is arranged according to flight landing. K1 or K2 is like city bus, maybe around every 20min. To buy train ticket, you do not have to do it from each departure station. You can buy tickets for all trips at same station together.

Answered by Donovan from LATVIA | Sep. 27, 2019 03:44

The station should open around 5am or at least 5:30am. I think there is shuttle bus between this station and airport but may not easy to find. You can ask the local people for direction or use taxi directly if you are tight in time.
