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/G278 take about 13 hours; while the normal speed ones take around 28.5 - 30 hours. It takes CNY 1,024 for a second class seat on high speed ones and over CNY 506.5 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.

This hotel is near main station in Guangzhou, to the South Station, the distance is around 23km. To the airport, the distance is about 30km. If you take a taxi, the total duration may not a very big difference. It should be around 40 to 50min on the way.
