Shanghai - Yinchuan Train vs. Flight

As it shows, normal train travel takes a long time of 28 – 34.5 hours. This will be a quite long journey. Tourists are advised to take soft sleeper or hard sleeper berth as their first choices. The sleeper tickets should be bought in advance as they are always in great demands.

As an alternative, tourists can make a flight travel between the two cities. The direct flights take around 3 hours for a single journey. In peak seasons, the flight tickets cost a little more than rail ticket, while in low season, flight ticket may be cheaper than rail ticket. Take note that flight delays may occur because of weather change or air traffic control.
