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.
