Questions & Answers on Nanchang Travel Tips
Asked by EL from SINGAPORE | Jul. 10, 2016 10:50Reply
I am planning to travel to Nanchang from either Shenzhen or Guangzhou.
May I know which city is more economical and by train or flight?

Direct flights are available from both cities and the fare varies a little, which actually depends on your travel date. By train, Guangzhou has more bullet trains to the city and the cost is lower than that from Shenzhen. You may try to search the train and flight info on the corresponding pages of this website.
