Hong Kong - Zhengzhou Train vs. Flight

By now, one pair of direct flights between Hong Kong and Zhengzhou is available on every Monday and Thurseday. Passengers only need to spend about 2.5 hours to get to their destination, which helps reduce about 4 hours at least comparing with taking high speed trains. However, the maximum ticket fare of an economy class seat can reach up to CNY3,500 (USD 480), which is much more expensive than taking bullet trains.

Therefore, passengers can choose the suitable means according to self-conditions. Passengers who have limited travel budget can choose to take high speed trains that can save much money. If passengers have tight travel time, taking planes is a better choice.

Train routes
Hi Can I get a Hi speed train from Xi'an to Hong Kong via Zhengzhou. Is this the best route to take?
Also is it necessary to take Covid test before leaving UK to arrive in Shanghai in September 2023/ Thank you

Answered by Emily | May. 31, 2023 18:50

It is available to transit in Zhengzhou. However, the best way is transiting in Guangzhou South and the total travel time is around 8.5 hours, shorter than 10 hours via Zhengzhou. Pre-booking train tickets is very necessary.

At present, a self testing antigen test within 48 hours is needed when entering China. I'm not sure if the policy will change in September.

Hi, we plan to buy tickets from HK all the way to North of China
Our son do not have a passport yet. Can you book tickets for us first and we will offer the passport number later once we have it? Thank you for your reply in advance.

Thank you for your inquiry.

For ticket booking, passenger information is a must. We are not able to book ticket without passenger information. You may book the tickets after you get detailed passport numbers. However, if the child is under 150cm, you may buy child ticket by using one of the adult passenger information. Hope this information can help you.

You do the process of boarder check at Hong Kong West Kowloon Station before boarding in advance in fact. So after that, you can stay on the same train all the way until it reach Zhengzhou.
