Second class seat on G80 to Beijing West and to Tianjin
Will there be more tickets offer on G80? I cannot see any ticket but they are available on G72. Also, how long it takes by line 7 and line 4 to go to Beijing South Station?

It is true that the tickets are hard to get on G80 as it comes from HK. It is a very popular one. Sometimes, when the date is more approaching, maybe more tickets can be offered. However, it is only a chance, not always. To transfer from Beijing West Station to Beijing South Station, it should be around 30min.
