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.

    We really appreciate your fast reaction this time. It is a pity that I cannot travel in China due to the virus and I have to cancel all my trips. I emailed you about the cancellation and you replied very fast. You handled my cancellation and refunded me all the payment five days later. Really fast. You are so credible. I will certainly use your service for my next year’s trip. Thank you so much.

    I used TravelChinaGuide to book all my 11 train trips and they were wonderful! The paper tickets are easy to get at the ticket counter (just show your passport and the pickUP number to any ticket window) and they issued the tickets with all my required seat/ berth. Highly recommended!
