There is meal for sale at lunch time and dinner time, usually box meal and they can heat it for you. Very limited in option and higher than normal price. It is not possible to buy a meal at Nanchang West as you cannot find any shop on the train platform. You can take your food.

Which station is closer to The Moment, Unit 1, Tengda Plaza, Zhongshan West Road?
Which station is closer to the hotel, Guiyang East? North?

Answered by Aidan from CANADA | Jan. 21, 2019 17:56

The North Station should be closer in distance. It would be convenient to use metro service. You can take line 1 from the North Station to Zhongshanxilu, exit C first and then walk to the Tengda Plaza to reach the hotel. It takes less than 30mins.
