Guangzhou-Wuhan High Speed Train

I just saw the launching of the Guangzhou-Wuhan high speed train service on TV. I wonder how much a roundtrip ticket would cost? Which station in Guangzhou and Wuhan services the train?

The ticket costs RMB 480 (2nd class) and RMB 780 (1st class) ONE WAY.

The station in Guangzhou is Guangzhou Railway Station (not East). Not sure about the one in Wuhan - can't find information online.

Hope this helps.

As I said in the previous post, it's Guangzhou Raiway Station (not East).

I don't think you can book any train tickets in China on the internet. There are agents who can help you get the tickets - any train tickets really at a charge of about RMB 5-15, depending on which route it is.

Hope this helps.

First option: Will they accept plane ticket to Hong Kong?

Second Option: Buy a full price fully refundable air ticket from Hong Kong to somewhere in China. Get the visa then get a refund for the air ticket.

Third option: Apply for the Chinese visa in Hong Kong.

Remember that there is no direct train from Hong Kong to Wuhan. Instead you have to get the train to Guangzhou first, which is bookable online at the MTR.
