Frequent Asked Questions about Hongkong Lhasa Train Tour
Why Take Tibet Train from Hong Kong?
There is no train that runs direct from Hong Kong to Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region, so visitors will need to change at one of the seven major cities in mainland China that serve the Tibet Trains. Flights can be arranged to other cities that serve the Tibet routes, but if you are determined to travel by train, your best option is to get the train from Kowloon, in Hong Kong, to Guangzhou, and then change there for the train to Lhasa.
Hong Kong is one of the world’s biggest trade ports, and the largest center for commerce and industry in Southeast Asia. Officially known now as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, it lies on the Pearl River delta. Across the delta to the west lies Macau, the playground of Asia’s rich and famous, and to the north lies the province of Guangdong. It has carried many names in the past, including nicknames, the most famous of which was Pearl of the Orient. The name is a reflection of the impressive nightscape of the city’s lights that decorate the skyscrapers on both sides of the Victoria Harbour.
One of the main reasons to take the train from Hong Kong is the lack of international restrictions on travel in the region. However, there is still a need to get a visa for China, before departing for your trip to Tibet, as you will need to transfer to a station or airport in China before traveling on to Lhasa. And there are plenty of sights to see around the island while you are waiting for your visa or train to leave. As well as a 34-meter-high statue of Buddha set atop the Po Lin Monastery, you can take in the sights of Victoria Peak, which overlooks the whole island, or spend some money in Hong Kong’s last night market, in Kowloon’s Temple Street.
For the residents of Hong Kong and Macau, it is no need to apply for the Tibet travel permit (Tibet visa). All you need to take is your HK/Macau SAR Passport and Home Return Permit.
How to Get to Hong Kong Train Station?
Hong Kong has several train stations, but the one you need for traveling to Guangzhou, and then on to Lhasa, is the Hung Hom Station, in Kowloon. It is the only station that travels to mainland China, and is the hub station for transfers between the East Rail Line and the West Rail Line. To get there you can take the metro direct to the station on either the West or East Rail Lines, or from Central you can take the Tsuen Wan line to Tsim Sha Tsui Station and then the West Rail Line to Hung Hom Station.
The station is well set up for ease of access, with a huge ground floor level with multiple entrances and lots of shops and stores. The station consists of four floors, with the platforms on the lowest floor, which is the second basement level. The floor above, known as the M Concourse, includes customer service counters, as well as exits for pedestrians to Tsim Sha Tsui and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
The ground floor contains the main concourse, as well as the Immigration Department offices, Customs and Excise, ticket offices, and the main, ground level exits. Going up to the second floor, you will find a selection of restaurants, fast food stalls, cafes, bakeries, shops, and travel agencies. The Loft, as it is known, is the perfect food court within the station, with selections of cuisine from China, Britain, and around the world.
The station has seven platforms, although the freight platform is no longer used. It should also be noted that the two “island” style platforms have their own washrooms, which is an unusual feature of the station. There are also large LED screens on every platform, with a full listing of all trains and their respective departure or arrival platforms. All signs are written in both Chinese and English, and have been since the station was first opened in 1975.
How to Avoid High Ticket Demand?
There is no direct flight from Hong Kong to Xining, so to take advantage of the higher elevation of Xining, in Qinghai Province, and the start of the real Qinghai-Tibet Railway, you would need to fly to Chengdu first, and then change for Xining. While this can be a little complicated, with multiple connections, it does make the trip a lot shorter, and gives you the opportunity to acclimatize in Xining for a day or so, before taking the train from there to Lhasa.
The main advantage of traveling via airplane to Xining and then taking the train from there is that you can save time on the trip, and as Xining is at an elevation of 2,275 meters, you can always spend a day there to help with acclimatizing to the higher altitudes. This can help to reduce the risk of altitude sickness. Moreover, as most of the spectacular scenery is on the train from Golmud (where the train starts its ascent to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau) you would not be missing any of the best parts of the train journey.
