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.

How to exit and leave the station

On arrival, passengers will be directed to the exit channel. Both North and South exits can be used. Passengers who plan to take a taxi or private car need to exit from the South Exit and passengers who plan to use buses need to exit from the North Exit. Buses on North Square run between the station and downtown areas of Shantou, Chaozhou and Jieyang city.
