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.

    I had a great experience using your train service. I found it easy to use, informational, and a great way to book tickets. I found the email that you gave you information on how to pick up your tickets both in English and Chinese especially helpful. You really saved me when I was stranded in Wuhan on my way to Hong Kong with no flights available. Thank you!

    TravelChinaGuide provides great booking service. I got the ticket pick-up number by email. It was easy to get the paper tickets at the ticket window, get the station at least 60 minutes in advance.
