Is this Haikou station which Z111 stops at the same one where I can take a high speed train to Sanya?

Answered by Reet from PORTUGAL | Apr. 25, 2019 18:54

There are around 10 high speed rides a day from this station to Sanya, but most of the high speed rides go from Haikou East. If you decide to make a transfer in Haikou, you'd better plan plenty time between. Z111 runs a long distance before reach Guangzhou. It may delays.

Yes, there is rail service to the mainland. The train will be aprt and board a ferry. After landed, it will keep running to the destination. Passengers will keep stay inside the carriage during the whole process.
Asked by Jonathan from SAN MARINO | Dec. 25, 2018 01:28Reply
I may need to make a transfer in Maoming and Haikou to get a ticket to Sanya.
However, I have one concern. D7487 from Guangzhou will reach Maoming at 10:22pm, but Z111 from Maoming to Haikou only departs at 2am the next day. So am I able to stay inside the station all the time? I will have to give up if I have to stay outside more than 3 hours at midnight time.

Answered by Denny from SINGAPORE | Dec. 25, 2018 16:39

I think it should be no problem. Maoming Station must be on duty for 24 hours and stations should allow passengers who are about to take the train in 3 hours.
