Guangzhou - Changsha Train

About 170 pairs of trains are shuttling between Guangzhou and Changsha. Among them, around 125 pairs are bullet trains from Guangzhou to Changsha and vice versa, running with duration of 2.5 – 3.5 hours; and the other around 45 pairs are normal types taking about 7.5 – 9.5 hours.

Aside from the rail travel, flight is also available. There are about 5 pairs of direct flights in service between the two cities, with travel time of only 1.5 hours or so. But the airports are a little far from the downtown area. If counting in the transfer time to/from airports, the total flight travel time may be more than 3 hours, the same as high speed rail travel time. Also, flight ticket usually costs more than railway ticket and flight schedule is not as dense as rail schedule.

Running at its top speed of 186 mi/h (300 km/h), G ones run for a distance of 439 miles (707 km) with duration of 2h17m -3h2m.

On most high speed trains, there is plug under the seat can be used. For sleeper trains, sometimes you can find one under table in the passage, for sleeper carriage only.

All these rides listed are direct rides. You do not need to transfer on the way. If you can get schedule on this website by departure and arrival city, all the rides listed are direct rides. If you mean "non-stop", you can consider G86, G96, G80 or G66. They runs to Changsha South without any other stops along the way.

Hi, can you help me? I left my sunglasses on the train
I took the train on G1110 on April 19 from Guangzhou South to Changsha South. I probably left my sunglasses on the train. It could be at the front pocket. How can I contact the station? Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Did you booked the tickets with us? If yes, would you please inform us your tracking number by email and also inform us more details about your sunglasses, for example, brand and color etc. With your ticket information, we will try to contact the railway company to see if they have found it or not. If you bought the ticket by yourself, you can try to go to Guangzhou South Station directly for inquiry.

Pet is not allowed. If you want to go by rail, you can only choose a slow ride and arrange the pet by consignment service. You need to be on the same ride and prepare the health document for the pet in advance. The detailed cost is not clear, only known at the station consignment office.
