When you buy the ticket, you feel that price-wise maybe you should have flown domestic instead.


When you arrive at the station 10 minutes before the train leaves instead of an hour before, you feel like okay you’ve saved some time. At the very least you’ve saved yourself hanging around an airport for a while.


When you sit down in your seat and realize that you can actually move your legs, or get past your neighbor without disturbing said neighbor, you feel skinnier.

Quite a few people have answered this question and I think you can safely say China is leading the world in rail technology and after a serious accident a few years back, caused by corrupt officials cutting corners, the government is keen to prevent this kind of thing happening again, so I think you can now travel with peace of mind.


While all the positive side of Chinese rail travel has been covered, and rightly so; it really is a wonderful system which is the envy of many supposedly more developed countries, only a couple of people have commented on the negative aspects.


For me personally as a foreigner in China the most frustrating thing is having to queue for up to an hour to get your ticket - even if you already booked online. Locals can use the self-service machines with their Chinese ID card but I’ve only found one station so far which has machines that can accept a foreign passport. It seems almost every person in the queue only starts to decide when and where they wish to go when the reach the ticket window and long conversations can ensue before they eventually decide on their preferred time and destination. I’ve missed trains because of this before and on other occasions I’ve queued for over 30 minutes for a 15 minute journey, not including the extra time needed to check through the tight security (not complaining - security and personal safety are a good thing).


Try to book online if you can. Although you still have to queue, the process of issuing the ticket will be quicker and smoother once you finally get to the window as you only need to show your ID/passport and a reference number.


If you do find you are running out of time, try to go to the front of the queue and politely indicate you are running out of time. The people are generally friendly and understanding and will usually let you in.


If possible, collect your tickets a day or two earlier at a quieter time of day then you can just walk in on the day and only need to allow for 15 minutes or so to check through security and arrive at your gate on time.


Ticket machines at Lowu Station in Shenzhen accept foreign passports but not sure at time of typing this whether they only allow for ticket collection for journeys from Lowu or whether you can book and collect tickets for any station.


If you can book your return ticket, also try to collect it at the same time you collect your outward journey ticket so you only have to queue once.

Even as a Chinese myself, i am so amazed by the high-speed train in China. I have lived in Beijing for 8 years and moved abroad afterwards, i hadn’t spent too much time in my hometown since i left for University, thus i hadn''''t had a real chance to experience the true beauty of the high-speed train.


Last time when i was home on 2016, i was in a city in Jiangxi province where my mother live. I woke up at 8am and decided to go to re-new my ID in a local police station in Zhejiang province. So I told my mom of my plan and bought a ticket online , then we had our breakfast and walked 20 mins to send my sister to her school. Then i headed to the railway station by bus and only on the way suddenly my mom decided to go with me. I then bought another ticket for her at the counter in the train station and it only took us 10 mins to wait before we got on the train.


I remembered in the old days when i was much younger, mom and i always traveled this route to visit my grandparents, and it usually took us a whole day to reach the destinations.


After we got on the high-speed train, i kindly asked the people sit next to my mom to change his seat with me as i bought the two tickets in a different time, so the seats weren''''t together. That person happily accepted my request and had a few nice conversations with us. And i successfully sat next to my mom for about 5 mins until I heard the broadcast announcing i would arrive in my destination in 5 mins. I was like ?????????????????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that was super quick. It used taking us 2 hours on a regular green train to travel between these two cities from two different provinces and now it only took us 21 mins! (Also it usually took us several hours to reach the train station in the old times and now only within a hour.)


For people live in small cities in Southern China especially in Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangxi area, the high-speed train is just like a local bus. My classmate sometimes take a train to go shopping in Hangzhou in the day and return home at night, it feels like you are living in a big city like in Beijing, you need travel from one district to another, and it normally takes you 1–2 hours to do so one way, while with the high speed train, firstly, it is less crowd and much comfortable comparing to the buses&subways in Beijing, secondly it also only takes you 1–2 hours to travel within the provinces or even the provinces nearby.


I am so jealous of my sister now as she lives in such a high-tech modern time. She doesn''''t need to walk 1 hour to a bus station and take a 2-hour train to grandparents’ city, and waits 2 hours for a bus and takes another hour on the bus and walks another half a hour to arrive the grandparents’ house. She doesn''''t need to climb into a train through the window which i did when i was young during the holiday time, she doesn''''t need to stand in a crowd in the train for 2 hours which i did for thousands times before; she doesn''''t need to wake up early and wait in queue for hours and hours just to buy a short period train ticket coz it could be easily done through internet now…

Taking the high-speed train in China can be a pleasant surprise for those trying it for the first time. Let’s say you are from Europe or Japan and had grown up believing European or Japanese hi-speed trains are the best in the world. You are likely to assume that China’s trains can’t compete or compare with them.


I shall explain my experiences on the Chinese hi-speed train ride. I felt comfortable with plenty of space for seating. The air-controlled interior climate was set at the right temperature.


I took particular delight watching the speed of the train, since they posted the train’s digital speed-o-meter for everyone to see. But no matter how fast the train rolled on, you never felt any discomfort or bumpiness. You feel like you are floating on the rails.


In the following I’ll list the positive and negative sides of my experience.




Punctuality: compared with the Chinese flights, high speed trains are much more punctual - if it says arriving at 11:00am, it will arrive at 11:00am, no more no less. There are few exceptions that the trains do not arrive on time - even under that circumstance the trains will adjust its speed later on to meet the schedules of next stops.


Easy access: say I started my trip from Weinan, a city without any airports, which meant I would have to spend 1-hour drive to Xi’an Airport to catch my flight if I chose to travel by air. Also, considering the time of security checking and baggage dropping I would have to reserve at least 1.5 hour before the departure of domestic flights. And unlike airports, most of the high-speed train stations are located near city areas, meaning passengers can take taxi or Didi at affordable prices upon arrival.


In fact, as of 2017, all the major Chinese cities except Lhasa, Tibet have been connected by the high-speed rail way network. The current network is known as the ‘四縱四橫’ (Four Vertical and Four Horizontal), which was planned in 2008 and has been completed this year. At this stage, you can travel to any major cities within one day by high-speed trains.


(suppose you start your trip from Beijing, you can get to Urumqi in 12 hours)


In 2016, the National Development and Reform Commission revised this plan and would extend the network to ‘八縱八橫’ (Eight Vertical and Eight Horizontal) by the end of 2020. By that time any Chinese cities with a population over 200 thousand will be connected by high-speed trains.


Comfortableness: on an airplane most of the time we are supposed to remain seated, but on the high-speed trains we can stretch our arms and legs easily and walk around in the carriage any time.




Food: the standard price of a lunch box on the high-speed trains is 45 RMB (8.5 USD), which is still relatively expensive by the Chinese standard. Therefore, most of the passengers will bring their own food and drink on board, and because of this, the carriages are sometime full of food flavour.


Lack of entertainments: unlike what we usually do on an international flight - watching movies. The Chinese high-speed trains at this stage simply do not provide this kind of service. Passengers probably have to bring their own devices for video viewing.


Others: kids running at aisles and people talking loud over phones will definitely disturb your sleeping.



5. Eventually, you hit the top speed. It’s most likely the fastest you’ve ever moved on land!


6. Finally, you reach your destination city. Of course, you’re excited to explore a new Chinese city, but also you’re a bit disappointed that the journey is over. You file off the train, out of the destination station and look forward to the next fast, convenient trip!

If I have an option for a trip to a place in my province or a connecting province, then I always take the High-Speed Rail. Why? See below:


1). Honestly, it’s cheaper than flying. Assuming you’re going on some sort of holiday, flying in China is just too expensive. And, when it’s not a holiday it’s still much cheaper to take the high-speed rail. For example, I live in Zhuhai, across the sea from Hong Kong, and if I want to fly to Guilin the next province over during the off season, I’m paying at least RMB1400. But to take the high speed rail? I’ll pay RMB 200ish. Technically, the trip should take slightly longer, however flights are usually delayed in China for various reasons. A common example is “heavy fog”. So, not only is it cheaper, it’s faster.


2). Leg room. Chinese planes tend to be cramped, and if you’re a bigger person, good luck if you’re not sitting in first class. Trains on the other hand are much better. However, sometimes it will be packed like a subway and difficult to move around. It just depends on the date/time of day/route. This is because they allow people to stand.


Many business people prefer the high-speed train to flying because 1) many flights are often delayed; 2) train stations are better located, which means less travel time; 3) they can telecommute on the smooth train.


As for the downsides, food is pricey and so-so. Staff salespeople walk around to promote souvenirs and gifts which can sometimes be annoying. Some passengers play music or watch videos without headphones, but this happens in all modes of transport.
