Guangzhou - Qingdao Train

One pair of high speed trains and one pair of normal speed trains are running between Guangzhou and Qingdao every day.

Due to the long distance, the high speed G276 takes 12 hours 55 minutes from Guangzhou to Qingdao and G276 takes 12 hours 57 minutes for the return trip; while the normal speed ones take around 30 hours for both trips. It takes CNY 1,023.5 for a second class seat on high speed ones and over CNY 510 for a hard sleeper on normal speed ones.

As the ticket fare for high speed rides are relatively high, tickets for the normal speed rides are always under great demands, especially during public holidays, so if you decide to take the slow train, please book a ticket as early as possible.
