Guangzhou - Changchun Train

So far, no direct high speed trains are available between Guangzhou and Changchun. Only 3 or so pairs of normal speed trains run between Guangzhou Railway Station and Changchun Railway Station.

As the distance by railway is quite long, about 3,300 kilometers (2,050 miles), it takes 32 to 37.5 hours for a one-way trip. It means passengers have to stay onboard for one or two nights.

To save time and make a more comfortable trip, you can connect the trip in Beijing by high speed trains. Alternatively, taking a flight is also a good choice.
