more questions about : one way ticket fly to Guangzhou...
I do have china visa , good for 10yrs. The 144hr visa free transit does not apply to me. If I take high speed train from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, I don't think I will need any visa to enter HK, a passport is good enough.
My plan is to fly into Guangzhou with one way plane ticket, then go to Hong Kong by high speed rail. To Singapore from HK, then back to US from Singapore.
Is there any other legal document required bedsides local residents ID or foreigner passport to take the high speed rails?

Hi, Nadeeka, there are many popular scenic areas in the city. If you have enough time, you can spend 3 or 4 days to tour around.
Generally speaking, the public transportation is convenient. You can take metro and public bus. For your convenience, you can take a taxi. As I know, the fare is CNY 300 to CNY 400 per day.

China rail luggage allowance
I am preparing to leave the country upon the end of a work contract. I wanted to travel by rail from Jiamusi to Harbin to fly out of Harbin international airport. I will probably have 2 large pieces of luggage (20kg each) in addition to carry on luggage. Should i book normal train or high speed rail? Will high speed rail accept my baggage? Will there be any fees?

As I know, both normal train and high speed train don't have strict restrictions about luggage size. You can bring your luggage to the train.
