Railway Stations in the Two Cities

Travelers who travel between these 2 cities need to pay highly attention to the stations to use as there are many different stations in both cities. Passengers are advisable to double check the station before departure to avoid unnecessary trouble on the day of travel.

 In Shenzhen:
The main station, also called Luohu Railway Station by local people, is located at Luohu District and can be accessed by subway Line 1 (Luo Bao Line). It is not far from Luohu (Lo Wu) Port between Hong Kong and mainland. North Station is also a frequently used station which is connected by subway Line 4 (Long Hua Line) and Line 5 (Huan Zhong Line). West and East station are not so frequently used and operate non-bullet rides only.

 In Wuhan:
There are 3 stations in the city, Wuhan Railway Station, Hankou Railway Station and Wuchang Railway Station. All the 3 stations are frequently used and are accessible by subway Line 2 or Line 4. Thus the transfer between would not be too difficult.


Except rail service, flights are available between as well, whose duration is around 2 hours. Although the flight ticket generally costs more, the price can be very competitive if a good discount is offered by the airline.

Do I still need to have paper tickets?
Or can I use your confirmation for boarding if I book with you online?

Thank you for your inquiry.

You need to hold paper tickets to board the train. For online booking, we offer two ways for ticket collection. First, you can collect paper tickets at station by yourself. Second, we can deliver paper tickets by express to your hotel in China. You can choose between this two options when submit the booking request online.

If I will take a high speed train from Shenzhen to Wuhan which station will I land at?
I suppose it is just the main station as it shows "Wuhan" only on your website? Please confirm, thank you!

Asked by Aiyana from INDIA | Jan. 29, 2019 01:54Reply
I will be at Vienna Hotel Shenzhen Xiashuijing Subway Station
The hotel address is 266 Jihua Road. I am considering G72 at 7am from Futian or G1312 at 7:38am from Shenzhen North. Which station is easier to go from my hotel? How long it may takes and will there be a traffic problem on Sunday morning?

Answered by Bella from USA | Jan. 29, 2019 19:23

G1312 at 7:38am would be much better for you as your hotel is closer to the North Station with direct metro service. You can take metro line 5 from Xiashuijing Subway Station to North Railway Station directly, but the first metro only departs at 6:36am and it takes around 20min on the way. So to catch G1312 at 7:38am, it would be better if you have the paper ticket in hand in advance. By metro, there is no traffic problem and it should not be as crowded as week days.
