Hong Kong to Zhangjiajie High-Speed Train
With no direct trains to get from Hong Kong to Zhangjiajie, nor from Hong Kong to Changsha, so basically there is no way to take a high-speed train to Zhangjiajie from Hong Kong with only one transfer. It is suggested to first get to Guilin by high-speed train and then fly to Zhangjiajie directly.
|Hong Kong to Zhangjiajie via Guilin||Departure||Arrival||Duration||Frequency Daily||Price|
|Hong Kong to Guilin by high-speed train||Hong Kong West Kowloon Station||Guilin West Railway Station||3-3.5 hours||12:05, 14:53||379 CNY|
|Guilin to Zhangjiajie by air||Guilin Liangjiang International Airport||Zhangjiajie Hehua International Airport||About 1 hours||1 departure (NOT every day)||Averagely 960 CNY|
There is also no direct high-speed train from Guilin to Zhangjiajie. If you are set on going from Guilin to Zhangjiajie by high-speed train only, you’ll need to transfer to Changsha.
Many travelers who transfer to Guilin would choose to stay there for 2 or 3 days, where they can hike up to Longji Terraced Fields, cruise along the Li River, and cycle through Yangshuo countryside. We can arrange a private Guilin and Longji Tour from Hong Kong according to your needs. Please feel free to contact us!
