Shanghai – Macau Flight

To save time, it is advised to travel by Macau to Shanghai flight instead of Macau to Shanghai train, and vice versa.

Is 30min efficient for me to change trains at Guangzhou South Station?
Does train G85 always runs on time? Should I buy ticket to Zhuhai after arrival at Guangzhou South?

Answered by Orson from LATVIA | Nov. 20, 2019 19:11

Normally 30min is fine as bullet trains hardly delay but I heard that now passengers need to use e ticket for the trip from Guangzhou to Zhuhai and for first time travelers, they need to verify passport at station first, so I suppose 30min would not be enough if you are first time traveler. 1 hour would be better or it should be fine to buy ticket on spot too.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The overnight high speed ride did runs every Friday to next Monday, however, the train on Feb 4 seems cancelled by Railway Company. This D941 is not on the schedule list for Feb 4. You may need to make a transfer in Guangzhou on other day time high speed rides. Hope for your kind understanding.
