Train ticket collection
Can I pick up my tickets purchased online (HK to Guangzhou & Guangzhou to Guilin) from Lo Wu train station? Or even the new Kowloon West train station?
Answers (2)
Answered by Hilliard | Oct. 15, 2018 03:08

For the HK to GZ one, you need to do it at West Kowloon Station. For the Guangzhou to Guilin one, you need to collect it in mainland. You can also do it at West Kowloon Station for the second one, but there will be extra service fee charged.
Answered by A from CHINA | Oct. 18, 2018 09:26

Thanks Hilliard. I ended up picking everything up at West Kowloon Station. The inter-China tickets had a 10% fee as I wasn't picking them up in China.

Answered by Tommy Y | Jan. 08, 2018 02:10

Beijing Street area should be closer to Guangzhou Railway Station, you may use subway line 2 for transfer. There are many high speed C rides a day from SZ to GZ.

You can try to buy the ticket on spot if you are not tight in schedule since there are many rides a day.

No hubei station, Hubei is a provice, not a city. You need to know which city you want to visit firstly.
Answered by Haz from MALAYSIA | Jan. 08, 2018 09:21

I googled it, and found the website where people can estimate their journey cost. And in the website, they have hubei station, its about 200+ metre to Dong Men Pedestrian Street.
Answered by Karen | Jan. 08, 2018 22:01

it is a subway station. If you take subway from Hebei, you can line 2 to Futian first and then change to line 11 there to reach the airport. The duration maybe around 1 hour.
