Guangzhou – Nanjing Train vs. Flight

Direct flights between the two cities take about 2 hours for a single journey, saving a lot of time compared with a rail trip. Flights are the first choices for those who are tight in time. Usually, the full price for an economy class is about CNY1,300, but when discounts are provided by airlines in low seasons, the flight ticket fare can be low to CNY400 – 900, which is pretty competitive. In peak seasons, the ticket fare may exceed CNY1,000.
Compared with normal speed trains, high speed trains save a lot of time as well. The facilities and environment on bullet trains are better than that on normal speed ones. In high seasons, they are good choices to save money and time. Besides, the land scenery outside the window is amazing.

In general, budget travelers are very likely to choose normal speed overnight sleeper trains as they are much cheaper.

Since it is early morning, 1 hour should be possible for ticket collection. If you are worried about finding direction, maybe 1.5 hours. It would be better if you can collect the paper ticket in advance before travel date. In this way, 40min should surely enough.
