How to Travel Between Changsha and Wuhan

Wuhan is about 330 km (205 mi) from Changsha. There are two transportation means between these two cities: high speed train and normal speed train. The highly-recommended way is by high speed train. The cheapest high speed train ticket costs only CNY164-179 and you can arrive in the destination in 1.5 to 2 hours. Although the normal speed train is slower than the high speed train, some visitors still take it because the ticket price is quite low, and the cheapest ticket costs only CNY 54 for a hard seat. Due to the short distance, there are currently no direct flights between Changsha and Wuhan. If by transfer, you need to stopover in other cities for at least 1.5 hours; also considering the higher ticket price, such transportation way is not recommended. At present, the long-distance buses are not operated, either.
