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.

    Thanks for your help to book the train ticket for you. Your service is good. But it is a pity that train is unavailable from Shanghai to Yangzhou, otherwise we could avoid the trouble of buying bus ticket in Shanghai. I hope train will be open soon between. I still need to go back home next year. I will contact you later and book it.

    We had a very deep impression about your country - developing China. You had a great improvement for the transportation. The high speed trains cover most cities in China. And now, we found that passengers could collect the tickets at the station directly without paying extra fee. It is very convenient for foreigners.

    When we booked the tickets online, we were uncomfortable, as we were still in US. We just submitted the order and we did not pay for the tickets directly. After receiving the email from Travel China Guide, we replied and told them our concern. They were so professional and replied us quickly. In the end, we chose them to book tickets. It turned out they are an excellent group to book train tickets.
