Only these two pairs of normal types run between the two cities currently. They cost less than the bullet types, but the environment is not as good as that of bullet types. They are also not as punctual as bullet types.

If you are going to travel by any of them, a sleeper will be better because the hard seats are not comfortable, and the carriages for hard seats are rather crowded, especially during holidays when thousands of people will travel by rail. The carriages for sleepers are quieter and you can have a good rest during the night. In this case, you can be energetic to travel around in day.
 

Flight

If you are pressed for time or do not feel comfortable about the long journey, you can travel by air which takes only 2.5 hours. But the ticket price is generally higher than railway tickets.

    We're so sorry we made a mistake in our passport numbers so we can't collect the tickets at the train station for our first trip. Luckily TraveChinaGuide managed to cancel wrong ticket at last minute to get some refund back for us. Thanks for your help.

    Do you know we don’t need to collect paper ticket at Shanghai Hongqiao railway station, we just present our passports on the gate and they let us in and then we board the train. So quick.

    It’s the first time that I book a ticket with travelchina. The booking process is simple. I paid and got confirmation just in a few minutes. With the detailed instruction, I collected the ticket at ticket counter and board the train easily. It saved me a lof of trouble. I will use your service again.
