Guangzhou - Macau Train

Up to now, there is no direct Guangzhou to Macau train or vice versa, no matter high speed or non-bullet train. But the high speed rail line from Guangzhou South Railway Station has been extended to Zhuhai Railway Station, which is just next to Macau across Gongbei Port. After passing the port, there are buses taking you to many destinations in Macau.
 There are about 100 pairs of high speed trains a day running between Guangzhou South Railway Station and Zhuhai Railway Station. The duration is about 45 minutes to 1.5 hours only, and the ticket price is CNY90 per person for first class seat and CNY70 per person for second class seat.

Zhuhai Railway Station is in walking distance to the Gongbei Port, or called Barrier Gate, Border Gate and Portas do Centro in Macau. The opening time of the port is from 06:00 to 01:00 next day. Please kindly notice that for passengers who travel to Zhuhai, it is important to get off at Zhuhai Railway Station instead of Zhuhai North Railway Station. The North station is far from the port.

    Ticket-collection at train station is easy and quick, the staff print all our paper tickets in a minute. But some other travelers always cut in queues, which makes us not pleasant.

    This was my first time to China mainland and they made my travel much easier. I heard that you must arrange the train tickets in advance, so I arranged all my tickets here and received excellent service.

    We took the train G71 from Guangzhou, which takes about nine hours. Then we continued to head for Zhuhai and Macau. We are pleased that we bought the Business Class Seat tickets because we could lie down to have a rest. Otherwise, it would be uncomfortable. The TV shows some advertisement and the train staff are friendly and well-mannered.

    We missed our train from Zhuhai to Guangzhou South. We called Candy for help and she is patient to talk with us and the train staff. Finally, we catched our flight back to London. She is amazing.
