So far, there are about 13 pairs of flights flying from Shanghai to Hong Kong and vice versa on a daily basis, and the number may be increased in high season. In general, flight are more recommended to passengers with limited time and sufficient budget due to the relatively short journey time and the high prices; it is also a good bargain to buy a flight ticket when there is a special discount. On the other hand, high speed trains can be a good choice for passengers who have limited transportation budget.

    Hello The booking experience with TCG was very good and the staff was very efficient.

    I just got back from Hong Kong today. I have to say you guys have been excellent. One thing that I think would help is for you to have the facility to allow us to pay by credit card. Making bank transfers in China, finding the right bank etc can be a bit daunting and tiring. However, I have nothing but praise for the way you have dealt with my ever changing itinerary both in China from Ukraine.

    I would like to say thank you for the service you provided to us. You delivered on everything that you said you would. The tickets were at the Hotel when we arrived. We had the seats that we wanted. The information that you provided regarding catching the train was very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to others. And on our next trip to China we will be using your services again. Thank You so much.

    Booking experience through TCG booking center:
    From 1 to 10, 10! I had to make de payment by paypal. Maybe it would be easier to make it by credit card.

    Our train journey was perfect and very comfortable...

    A very easy to use booking system. The sleeper train went well and reached Shanghai as plan. Very impressed with the your quick and personal responses to my queries. Very impressed with your organisation in delivering the required ticket to my hotel in China, a result of the 30 day advance booking restriction. I would recommend your system to to anyone.

    One thing is not clear and worried me at first, the ticket that I received did not contain either my name or passport number. So, why did your system require this information? Unless I have missed something and this information is not required, perhaps the form asking for the passport information could be removed from your system making life a little more simple for everyone....More

    The booking experience through TCG booking center was very good. Everything was handled very professionally. I will definitely use, and recommend, this service in the future. My general impression on this train journey was great. From check in, waiting room, the platform, boarding and the train facilities were awesome. I am glad that I chose the train for my travel. I wish we have the similar type of train for traveling in US.
