Xi'an - Hangzhou Train

There are over 10 pairs of trains running daily between Xi'an and Hangzhou: over 3 pairs of them are high speed trains with duration of 7 to 8 hours; the other pairs are normal speed trains taking much longer time, 16.5 to 23.5 hours. In addition, an extra pair of normal rides run every two day. The running distance is 897 to 1,043 miles (1,444 to 1,679 kilometers).

Flight service is another frequently used way for transfer between. There are many flights a day between, taking only around 2 hours. Usually the flight ticket fare is higher compared with rail service, however, sometimes if good discount is offered, the price can be very competitive as well.

High Speed Trains

More than 3 pairs run between Xi'an North Railway Station and Hangzhou East Railway Station. With a top speed of 186 mi/h, the duration is around 7 to 8 hours for this 912-mile trip. Although a little far from the city center, both railway stations have been connected with subway lines, making transfer between the downtown and railway station quite convenient.

Is there any place for a simple lunch at Xi'an North Station?
If we need to get to station 1.5 hours in advance, the time seems too tight for a formal lunch. Is it possible to have a simple lunch at the train station?

The above 5 high speed G types are direct trains which means you do not need to change ride along any stopovers but only get off at Hangzhou.

How to reach Xi'an North Station from Eastern House Boutique Hotel?
Is there direct train/bus and how long it takes? Can I collect the tickets one or two days in advance? If this is workable, should both passengers be there for collection or I can do it by myself?

Answered by Edwin from USA | Feb. 12, 2019 19:12

You can take metro line 2 but need to walk about 1.5km first to reach the Bell Tower station. This line 2 will take you to the North Station directly. The metro would take around 30min from Bell Tower. You can collect the tickets days in advance. You can do it by yourself as long as you have both passports and pick up numbers. By the way, for the collection, you do not have to reach the North Station. The main station near city wall is closer to you. You can take bus No. 229.

The last ride of subway line 1 at Hangzhou East Station is at 23:11pm for Xianghu direction. If you can catch it, you can use it to Andinglu, exit D and then walk about 1.2km to the hostel. If not, taxi seems the only option. By taxi, it may be around CNY30 or 40.
