Zhongshan Station is located in Zhongshan Torch Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone and Zhongshan North Station is located between the north part of Shiqi and the port area.


Shiqi is considered to be the city center, so Zhongshan North is closer to the city center.

The fare is about CNY7 for the first 2 kilometers and then CNY2.48 for every additional kilometer. The other rate is for trips further than 10 kilometers. The same start-rate is the same as the former, but each additional kilometer is CNY2.6.


During the night from 22:00 to 05:00, twenty percent of basic fare per kilometers is additionally charged if the distance is more than 2 kilometers.


There are also motor cycles available for the more adventurous on short hops and the fair for these is negotiable.

I recommend the following page to look up the train timetable from Guangzhou to Zhuhai: http://www.51maipiao.cn/

However, ticket reservation is only possible with a chinese passport number.

I have found that my local travel agent where I book my airfare also offers a visa service for China. They have the forms and sometimes even a camera for the photo needed for the application and can advise you on the visa types. I do not know if all agencies offers this, but the ones in Chinatown do.
