Just type in the nominals of the city you need eg. Shenzhen = SZ, Guangzhou = GZ and it will provide you will a list of all scheduled trains

 Great advice above..trains are regular, take between just under and just over an hour, cost from RMB70 to RMB100 (the latter if you take 1st class on the express train)

 One thing I would add, the doors on the trains seem to close 5 minutes before they depart, so make sure you get through the x-ray machine and ticket gate at least 10 minutes in advance

Don't take the 70RMB ticket

Don't take the 70RMB ticket because sometimes that train stops in Dongguan for up to an hour and also the A/C was occasionally absent.
75RMB is always around an hour and except during trade fair months it is easy to get tickets.

You can purchase a 2 way

You can purchase a 2 way ticket (include return ticket) in advance if you want to travel with less risk and save your time on puchasing ticket, or plan to travel on a certain date. However,  people usually buy their ticket directly from the counter when they arrive in the station. They are less consider to buy the ticket in advance since expressway connections between SZ and GZ are really well. But for foreigners, I suggest you to buy the ticket as early as you can, in order to reduce your risks.

The SZ train station is located near to the Shangri-la Hotel in LuoHu district. If you can read in Chinese u can click the follow link which has shown the map to reach the station (URL:

For extra information, an expressway runs between Shenzhen and Guangzhou  There are buses connecting Shenzhen with Guangzhou regularly and the trip takes about two hours. The  bus station is next to the train station and the bus station for Guangzhou is to the east of the railway station.

-==For the bus departure from shenzhen to Guangzhou, ==-the earliest departure time is 7am. The latest departure time is 9:21pm.

For train, the earliest departure time is 6:25am. The latest time is 10:35pm

if you are in the city (CBD region), u can take a subway. There are some information for Metro System (URL

Good luck! ^^peace

Yes,you can buy the train

Yes,you can buy the train ticket directly without leaving the east station,I remembered it cost 70rmb under one hour,and the train goes per 30 need to book the ticket early~

Hey! man Here's the Time

Hey! man Here's the Time table


ok you buy the tickets from

ok you buy the tickets from the station, it is a generally good idea to arrive well before the train is due to arrive as there is a million people at both ends wanting tickets.

THE train (if u get the fast one) takes just under an hour and is abour 90rmb, this is the one i suggest u take.

In guangzhou you take the train from Guangzhou east station and you arrive in Shenzhen louhu station, vice versa for the return

And im not too sure of the schedule i think its about every 20-30 minutes, but i may be wrong on this one
