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 68 pairs of high speed trains a day running between Guangzhou South Railway Station and Zhuhai Railway Station. The duration is about 1 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 7:00 to 24:00. 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.

How to travel between Zhuhai Gongbei Port and Macau

    The booking system was very easy (although it entailed sending emails some times about names). I found the prices offered by Travel China Guide very reasonable. The travel agents were friendly and easy to deal with, and train trip itself was great. Thank you for your service.

    So far we are extremely pleased with your service. We have been confirmed for the first two legs of our trip and received the train tickets for the first leg of our journey. We await the confirmation of the last leg of our journey and hope that the rest of our dealings are as favorable as the service so far. We certainly will provide more feedback when we complete our journey.
