Guangzhou - Yiwu Train

A total of 4 or so bullet trains run from Guangzhou South Railway Station to Yiwu Railway Station daily and 3 vice versa; the duration is 6 - 7 hours. And there are nearly 5 pairs of normal types being operated between the two cities with duration of 14 - 19.5 hours.

Alternatively, traveling by flight will be a good choice for those who are pressed for time. It just takes about 2 hours, but it may cost a lot more than rail travel.

High Speed Trains

With a distance of 946 miles (1,522 km), the whole journey takes 6 – 7 hours or so. All of the high speed trains originate/end in Guangzhou, and Yiwu is just an intermediate stop with a 2 or 5 minutes' stopover. So you should pack your luggage in advance and listen to the broadcast notices carefully to make sure that you detrain or board in time.

Yes, there is only one station for passenger use in Yiwu, so do not worried about getting to a wrong station. You can get off for a moment at stopovers but as the train is only stop at each station for about 2min, it is not recommended to do so. The break is very short and you may miss the train.
