Part of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway, the Wuhan-Guangzhou section will be opened to the public on December 26.
Bullet trains will run from Wuhan to Guangzhou for about 990 kilometers (615 miles), passing through the three provinces of Hubei, Hunan and Guangdong. The time from Wuhan to Guangzhou will be shortened from eleven hours to three hours!
The ticket prices for the bullet trains are very reasonable. A first class ticket is 788 yuan and a second class ticket is 490 yuan.
Using a normal train, people may need more than 600 yuan to get to Guangzhou from Wuhan, and more time is needed.
