Scenic Hangzhou – Huangshan High Speed Railway

Hangzhou – Huangshan High Speed Railway is reputed as one of the most beautiful high speed railways in China, for it passes by many attractions, including Thousand Islets Lake not in Qiandaohu, Longchuan Ancient Town in Jixi, Anhui style traditional village like Hongcun and Xidi in Shexian, and the world famous Yellow Mountain not far from Huangshan North Station. 

Hangzhou - Huangshan Train vs. Coach

Passengers can also travel between the two cities by long-distance bus. Duration is about 3 hours and ticket fare is approximately CNY100 per person. It costs less compared with high speed trains, but the bus tickets are hard to be purchased in advance and the leg space is limited. Also, the punctuality cannot be guaranteed as coaches can be easily affected by traffic jam or weather.

In contrast, high speed trains provide a wider leg room and facilities onboard are better than those on coaches. They are punctual in most cases, but tickets are always in great demands. Passengers should purchase tickets in advance if planning to travel by bullet trains.
