Questions & Answers on Shenzhen - Changsha Train
Asked by Henley from ITALY | Nov. 28, 2019 17:23Reply
Great website for train information
Hi, I found your website very useful for plan travel by train. I am about to book some train trips in Shenzhen, Changsha, Wuhan, Jinan and Qingdao. Before I place an order on your website, would you please tell me if you can give any confirmation for visa use? I know tickets will not be available more than a month before travel, but I need some documents to prove my travel plan to apply visa. Do you any any suggestion? Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We are pleased to know that you found our website useful! Before tickets are issued well, we can send you an e-invoice link with detailed schedule and passenger information listed. However, we are not sure if it is sufficient enough for your visa application. You may contact your local embassy to reconfirm it. If you need e-invoice, you can inform you this request by email after you placed an order and finished full payment.

Mamaya Apartment to Shenzhen North Station for G1004 at 8:30am
How to travel from my apartment during early morning time? Taxi? I was told to be at station 1.5 hour before train departure.

Taxi is the most convenient way, 30min on the way. You can also consider public subway line. There is line 1, Kexueguan station neat your apartment and then you can change to line 4 at exhibition center to reach North Railway Station. I think line 1 should start around 6:40am.

The last train from Changsha South to city center

Answered by Nannie from GREECE | Jan. 28, 2019 16:56

I think you mean the metro service right? Line 2 to city center area ends at 23:00pm. Hope you can still catch it! If not, taxi would be the only option.

How early should I be at the station?
I come from HK and plan to take MTR to Shenzhen North. Do you think I can catch the train at 8:21am to Changsha?

Answered by Matilda from CANADA | Nov. 01, 2018 20:38

As I know, Futian port only open at 6:30am. It is not sure how long will it take for the immigration check. It would be better to prepare at least 30min for that and also you need about 30min for transfer by metro line 4 to the North Station. Also, to collect the paper tickets at railway station, you need to prepare about 1.5 hours in case there is a long queue. So 8:21am maybe too early for you, it is better to choose a later one.

Or you can consider to use a direct high speed ride from HK to the North Station. In this way, the time is enough for an 8:21am trip to Changsha
