      • Hi, there
        I would suggest you to travel by G train (G1302, G1304, G1306, G1404) from Guangzhou South Station to Yiwu Station (4 trains daily). The G train is the fastest high speed train, taking about 6 – 7 hours from Guangzhou to Yiwu. You can check live train times, fares and ticket availability, or buy tickets online in advance at http://www.chinahighlights.com/china-trains/. You’d better buy tickets early. All the best.

  2. Hi we’re coming on Guangzhou by monday and we will visit yiwu on Wednesday how could we purchase a ticket because we don’t know how to speak Chinese

    • Hi, there are 4 high speed trains running from Guangzhou South Station to Yiwu on April 19, and you’d better buy tickets in advance in case the tickets are sold out quickly. I have notice that tickets for the fast train G1306 have been sold out. You have the other 3 trains for option. You can check ticket availability at China Highlights.
      In addition to high speed trains, you can also take a overnight train from Guangzhou Railway Station to Yiwu, which helps save you accommodation and costs. The K210 departs 20:35 and arrives at Yiwu at 12:02 next day.
