Travel Tips

Hankou Railway Station and Wuchang Railway Station are near the city center, but Wuhan Station located at Qingshan District is a little far. Passengers should make it clear for which one to be used, especially for those who need to make a connection in different stations.

The most of K & Z trains are overnight and will get to the destination the next day. By comparison, G type trains take the least time, and then D types. While for overnight types including all K & Z types, Z types are better based on their timetable and shorter duration.

Wuhan - Hangzhou High Speed Railway under Construction

Currently, bullet trains between the two cities make a detour in Hefei City, Anhui Province. A direct high speed railway is under construction now. Once completed, it can reduce the duration to three hours only.

Coming from Wuhan airport and go to Hankou by train
How long do you think it approximately takes to change trains in Hankou? If it possible to buy a ticket at counter directly for both trips to Hankou and Hangzhou?
Answers (1)
Answered by Priscila from NEW ZEALAND | May. 04, 2019 17:59

To be safe you need at least 30min between. You can buy the ticket at station directly. But the trip to Hangzhou can be sold out on the day. So it would be better if you book in advance. If your second trip is booked, maybe it is also better to have a confirm ticket for first trip as well *\^_^/*

Hankou Railway Station should be the closest one to this hotel, about 8km in distance. You may take metro line 2 from the station to Jianghan Road, exit D and then walk to the hotel. It takes around 30min.
