Comparatively speaking, bullet trains takes less time and passengers can enjoy the sceneries along the way, but it needs a whole day on the rail. Another good choice is the overnight Z257 / Z258, which takes about 17 hours for the whole journey. The duration is reasonable and also can save one night’s hotel bill. Z257 / Z258 departs in late afternoon and reaches the destination at the next day’s noon, with a few stops at big cities along the way. Only sleepers are provided on this train, so passengers should buy the tickets early.

Flights are also available between the two cities, taking no more than three hours. It may be a better choice for passengers who have a tight schedule. Although the airfare is higher, a reasonable discount may be given if you book tickets early, especially in low season. The flight schedules are suffieient from the early morning to late evening.

Questions & Answers on Hangzhou - Chongqing Train
Asked by Elvina from SLOVENIA | Oct. 25, 2019 01:24Reply
Booking tickets from Shanghai South to Chongqing North and hop on at Hangzhou East.
I would like tickets on Z257 but find tickets only available from Shanghai, none from Hangzhou. So I am wondering is this workable or I must head to Shanghai South firstly?

Thank you for your inquiry.

If you hold tickets from Shanghai south on Z257, you can board from Hangzhou East at 9:01pm. However, please collect paper tickets out before 7:09pm. Then you can board with paper tickets and passports. Hope this information can help you.
