How much flight tickets costs from Xi'an to Guangzhou?
Is it better to use bullet train or flight? I heard the flight in China always delay. Is it true?
Answers (1)
Answered by Raven from USA | Feb. 11, 2019 18:31

The full price for economy class should be around CNY1,600, but usually there will be discount offered, especially during off season. Sometimes there can be discount more than 50% off. The flight is indeed faster but bullet rides did enjoy better credit than flight in China. Flights sometimes delays, but not always. You can consider the price and time mainly.
