Hangzhou - Zhangjiajie Trains VS. Flights

Flight is also a good choice for the transportation between the two cities. There are only two direct flights available on every day. For example, from Hangzhou to Zhangjiajie, HO1821 (18:20 - 20:45) is in service, which is operated by Juneyao Air. The flight takes 2h25m. Sometime, the airline company will release a quite attractive discount according to their sales status, like 60% off ticket, which costs only CNY 560 per ticket including the tax. The full price reaches CNY 1,250 per one. Therefore, if you plan a trip between Hangzhou and Zhangjiajie, please compare the train fare and airfare beforehand, and then decide which one is the most suitable and economical way for you. Of course, if you have to travel on days without direct flights, it’s better to take a high speed train transfer in Changsha.

Booking a soft sleeper compartment for our family
We are a group of 5 passenger, one is a 2 year old baby. Since the baby do not need a ticket, I think soft sleeper is our best option? However, can I can make sure we will stay together to have one compartment privately? I read that the beds are given randomly. It means our family will be separated? If this is the situation, I would need to think of flight instead. Hope for your reply!

Thank you for your inquiry.

Although the beds are offered randomly by railway system, when there are still many beds for sale, it is usually no problem to get 4 beds together in same cabin. But if there are very limited beds for sale, this chance is hard to say. You can leave us this bed request in our booking form and we will notice it and do our best. In case, there is no whole cabin left, we will inform you first and waiting for your idea.
