Hong Kong - Guiyang Train vs. Flight

So far, there is no direct flight operating between Hong Kong and Guiyang. Passengers taking a plane need to transfer in Shanghai or Xiamen. Thus the total travel time of flying is more than that of taking a bullet train. Also, the flight ticket fare is much higher. It is easy to draw a conclusion that high speed train is the best choice for passengers who shuttle between the two cities.

Asked by Dave Jeffes from USA | May. 28, 2023 08:34Reply
customs at border?
I am coming from the US, flying into Hong Kong, then want to take the train to Guiyang. Do we need a covid test result, and use the app, to pass into the mainland from Hong Kong? What is the procedure for boarding and travelling on this train? Do we show negative covid test to purchase ticket? Do we get checked on board the train? Thank you.

Yes, you do need a self-testing antigen test within 48 hours and fill out the Chinese Health Declaration Form at Hong Kong West Kowloon Railway Station. All the immigration clearance will be processed and tests will be checked at West Kowloon Station. Then you can board the train. It is suggested to book tickets in advance.

Your hotel is closer to the North Station, you can consider G407. However, I found tickets hard to get on this train sometimes. Usually high speed trains run punctually with no more than 5 minutes difference.

Baggage restriction for first class seat and Business class seat - Hong Kong to Guangzhou South
I am going to Guiyang through Guangzhou South. Due to the cold weather, I need to carry a baggage of 135cm(HxWxD), but the weight not over 20 Kg. It is slightly over 130cm. If I purchase the business class seat , can I get little extra baggage allowance (135 cm vs 130cm, weight still below 20kg)?

In fact the size is not a problem. They do not really check the size and weight. You can take your luggage with you directly no matter for first class, business class or even second class.
