The Nanning–Guangzhou high-speed railway is a heavily-used passenger line operated by China Railway High-speed (CRH) connecting Nanning, the capital of Guangxi province, and Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province. Frequent trains run this line from Nanning to Guangzhou, with tickets selling out extremely fast despite the high number of seats available.
Now you can easily book your train tickets in China with Baolau.
China Railway High-speed (CRH) serviceChina Railway operates different types of high-speed trains, designated with service classes G, C and D. D-series trains provide long distance high-speed service with Electrical Multiple Unit, reaching a maximum speed of 250 km/h, and are the most common type of trains running on the Nanning–Guangzhou high-speed railway.
For this journey, we will be taking the D3643, which is actually a Nanning East to Zhuhai service, with a stop at Guangzhou South. While there are trains to Guangzhou from the main Nanning Railway Station in the city, services at the Nanning East Railway Station are a lot more frequent than the former main station.
Departure from Nanning East Railway StationNanning East Railway Station is easily accessible from the city by the new and efficient Nanning Rapid Transit (NNRT). It is the last station of the Line 1, so you probably will never get lost since all Line 1 station platforms indicate Nanning East Railway Station as the terminus. Simply get on the train from the city and wait until the end of the line.
A slight opposite from most train stations in China is that the ticket counters in Nannning East are located within the concourse, after security screening and before boarding the train. As such, clear security first and proceed to the ticket counters to purchase your ticket or, if you book your train tickets online with Baolau, present the printed copy of our electronic voucher containing the ticket collection number along with your passport to claim the physical ticket. Despite the frequent number of high-speed services on the line, tickets do sell out and you may need to wait several hours for the next train with seats available or else travel on a standing ticket, so we strongly recommend that you book your tickets in advance.
