Shanghai-Fuzhou Train

There are nearly 30 pairs of trains in total running between Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station and Fuzhou / Fuzhou South Railway Station. About 28 pairs of them are bullet trains with duration of 4.5 – 7 hours; and only one pair is normal types taking about 15/16 hours.

Flight is another option for passengers. It takes about 2 hours for the whole journey. But the airports are located in the outskirts, and usually it needs another 2 hours or so to transfer between the city center and airport. Thus, the total time for flight journey is almost the same as high speed rail journey. Besides, the flight is more easily influenced by the weather as both the cities are in coastal area, so delays happen more frequently.

It is not advised to take it. But if insist, a hard sleeper or soft sleeper is recommended because it's a long overnight journey. You'd better prepare some food and bottled water, or take a bottle to fetch free hot drinking water onboard. The food is provided onboard, but it's not delicious and costs a little more. Bottled water is the same case. Besides, take care of your luggage and valuable items because there may be thieves.
