Chengdu – Shenzhen Train vs. Flight

For passengers who travel in a hurry, flights can be a quite good option. Direct flights are shuttling between the two cities daily with duration of 2.5 hours or so. The full price for an economy class seat is about CNY 1,500, but usually, discounts may be provided by the airlines. In this case, an economy class seat may cost approximately CNY 600. A quick flight trip will be the first choices for many passengers then.

Or passengers can choose to make a transfer by high speed trains, which saves a lot of time. Meanwhile, passengers can visit different cities and see different scenery along the way.

Although normal trains cost less, the duration is rather long. Budget travelers may choose them. If so, it is advised to choose a hard or soft sleeper for this long-distance trip.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Yes, they are the same station. Local people called it North station due to its location. The metro stop there is also called North Railway Station. Please rest assured.

You can take metro line 4 to Hongshanguangchang (Hongshan Square) and then change to Line 2 there to Hankou Station. The duration is about 1 hour. It is recommended to collect the paper ticket for second trip in advance. With paper ticket in hand, you can prepare about 40min for the security and boarding.
