We are going to HK on 23 Dec and we intend to book a bullet train to chaoshan then to Xiamen.
Do you have any suggestion if we should go to Xiamen first then Chaoshan and back to Hong Kong?

Both sequence works the same way by bullet train. Maybe you can consider the international flight fare and time. It seems the flight to HK are usually a little bit cheaper.

I think you booked second class seats right? Your seats face forward the running direction. No worries! In fact, you hardly found seat in opposite direction. That is the reason why they make seat rotatable.
