Guangzhou to Changsha: Best Ways to Travel
Guangzhou is about 700km (435mi) away south from Changsha. The best way to travel between Guangzhou and Changsha is by high speed train, taking 2.5-3 hours and CNY300 for a second class seat. Though the flying only takes 1.5 hours, it is not as worth it considering the limited flights, the higher ticket price and the time consumed to/from the airports in the suburbs. In addition, the normal speed train takes about 8 hours and the long-distance bus needs 10 hours; budget travelers can choose those departing in the evening, because the overnight travel can save them the accommodation fare for one night.
