There are many hotels near the stations. You can check about Jinjiang Inn, Fulan Tehe Hotel (Zhangjiajie Tianmen Mountain) and James Joyce Coffetel. They are all about walking distance.

High speed train on-time arrival?

Do the bullet trains to Changsha from Hong Kong arrive on time and do the trains from Changsha to Zhangjiajie leave on time? I'm thinking of taking the G80 train from Hong Kong to Changsha (arriving in Changsha at 11:17 am). Then hop on the K810 train from Changsha at 11:29am to Zhangjiajie? Is it too tight to get on the 11:29am, including the time spent in buying the train ticket in Changsha or should I buy the K810 train ticket in Hong Kong ahead of time? Thank you.

This trip is impossible. The G80 stop at Changsha South Station and the rides to Zhangjiajie all depart from Changsha Station. They are two different stations. You need at least 30min on the way to go from one station to the other. If you also plan to buy a ticket between the rides, you may need even 1.5 hours.

How can I transfer from Guangzhou South Station to Guangzhou Station?
I am thinking about to go to Guangzhou South first from HK and then take the overnight train K9036 to Zhangjiajie? Which train should I take from HK to have enough time to make this connection? Thank you for your answer.

Answered by Krista from USA | Mar. 24, 2019 17:19

There is a metro line 2 go directly from Guangzhou South to Guangzhou taking 50min. Also, you need to prepare another 30 to 40min for boarding process at Guangzhou Station. So as long as you can have a 1.5 hours break between, it would be OK. By the way, collect both tickets in advance in HK!
