Shantou Railway Station

Shantou Train Station

Shantou Train Station is located on Taishan Lu in Longhu District of Shantou City in eastern Guangdong Province, South China. It used to be a train station only serving regular trains, but now comes to serve high speed trains as well after refurbishment in July of 2019. Currently, Shantou Railway Station serves high speed trains to or from Guangzhou East, Shenzhen North, Hong Kong West Kowloon, Puning, Chaoyang, Chaoshan, Dongguan, Shanwei, etc. But Shantou Railway Station has fewer services compared to Chaoshan Railway Station, which is a bit far from Shantou urban area.
