Chengdu – Changsha Train vs. Flight

If traveling in a hurry, passengers can also choose direct flights which take about 2 hours. Full price of an economy class seat is over CNY 1,100, but usually, passengers can enjoy a discount. In such a case, an economy class seat may cost CNY 500 or so.

It cannot be denied that high speed trains are punctual, but duration is kind of long compared with flights. If interested in making a train trip, bullet trains are good choices.

Normal trains take a rather long time, but if traveling by overnight sleeper trains, passengers can lie down to have a rest. Besides, the ticket fare is cheap. It will be a good choice for budget travelers.

May I know how to go from The Hotel Zen Urban Resort to Chengdu East?

Answered by Vicky from USA | Sep. 25, 2019 19:06

There is a metro station called Xinnanmen near this hotel. You can walk to the metro station and take line 3 there to Chunxilu, then change to line 2 there to reach East Railway Station. However, the metro only starts at 6:40 in the morning. If you are catching a morning ride, you would need taxi.

Do you mean high speed ride? There is no other rides in morning time. However, if you like, you can go to Guiyang or Wuhan first and then to Changsha. In this way, you can find morning time rides and reach your destination earlier.
