Guangzhou - Chongqing Train

Usually, there are over 25 pairs of trains running between Guangzhou and Chongqing. Among them, nearly 20 pairs of high speed trains run in day time taking 7 – 12 hours and around 10 pairs of non-bullet overnight sleeper trains take 21.5 – 31 hours.

In addition, there are many direct flights available for your convenience. The flight travel only takes about 2 hours. If you are pressed for time, flight is a good choice. But the flight ticket usually costs more than rail tickets, except in some low seasons.

High Speed Trains

Altogether nearly 20 pairs of them are operated on this route. Among them all high speed D types run between Guangzhou South Railway Station and Chongqing West Railway Station. The total distance is 1,201 kilometers (746 miles). A pair of high speed G types run to/from Chongqing North Railway Station instead with different running route. As the G types run a longer route, 1,950 kilometers (1,212 miles), they take longer time and also higher in price. Take the duration and cost into consideration, it is highly recommended to choose a D type for this trip.

Most of them run overnight from/to Guangzhou Railway Station, 3806/3805, K4511 and K4147 use Guangzhou East Station. In the other side, most of them are operated at Chongqing North Railway Station, while 3806 is at Chongqing Railway Station which is closer to city center and mainly operates normal trains to major domestic cities. Although North Station is a little far from downtown area, subway line 3 and city buses here make it convenient to travel to other places. Besides, both bullet and ordinary types are available from this station to other nationwide cities. In addition, K485/K486 use Chongqing West Railway Station which was put into service since Jan 15, 2018.

One thing to be noticed is that you'd better purchase a sleeper for the long journey and you are recommended to buy the sleeper tickets in advance because they are in great demands most of the time. With a sleeper, you can have a good rest during the night and then travel around energetically upon arrival.

Besides, they also pass by the following stations:
Guangzhou North, Yingde, Foshan, Zhaoqing, Yangchun, Maiming East, Maoming, Huazhou, Hechun, Wendi, Yulin, Shaoguan East, Pingshi, Chenzhou, Hengyang, Zhuzhou, Changsha, Yueyang, Xiangtan, Loudi, Xinhua, Xupu, Chibi, Xianning, Wuchang, Jingshan, Zhongxiang, Jingmen, Huaihua, Yichang East, Badong, Enshi, Lichuan, Wanzhou, Liangping, Kaijiang, Dazhou, Quxian, Guangan, Yuping, Shenyuan, Shibing, Kaili, Guiding, Guiyang, Guigang, Laibin, Liuzhou, Rongshui, Sanjiangxian, Yatunbao, Rongan, Tongdao, Jingzhou, Huitong, Tongren, Songtao, Xiushan, Youyang, Qianjiang, Zunyi, Tongzi, Ganshui, Qijiang, Pengshui, Wulong, Fuling, and Changshou

Questions & Answers on Guangzhou - Chongqing Train
Asked by Ashley from CROATIA | Oct. 14, 2019 03:27Reply
Hi, I am a little confused about high speed G train?
I thought G means the bullet train? Why is G1312 at 8am 3 hours slower than most D?
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Oct. 14, 2019 17:34

Thank you for your inquiry.

G type is indeed high speed ride in China. G1312 has a long duration as it runs a different route which is much longer than D rides. The duration is caused by running distance instead of speed. Afternoon ride G320 runs the same route as other D rides and take only 6.5 hours on the way. You may consider it if you want the fastest G ride. Hope this information can help you.

Answered by Diego from COLOMBIA | Dec. 25, 2018 16:40

Without serious traffic problem, it would take around 40 to 50min. The cost will be around CNY50 to 60. Do not know how to book a taxi in advance, but you can ask your hotel to find one for you when you checkout or to see if they offer this service as well.
