High-Speed Trains Connect Hong Kong to Neighbouring Cities After Three Year Closure

Almost three years after the Covid Pandemic began, the China Daily newspaper has announced that high-speed trains will now be connecting Hong Kong with neighbouring cities in the southern Chinese Province of Canton. As of Sunday 6:00 p.m. local time, some 6,500 people have used the rail connections.

However, a maximum of 5,000 passengers are allowed per day on each direction. People who cross the border by train will not have to reserve a place in advance, like those who cross the city’s border posts by land. The quota of 50,000 places per day is applied to the latter in both directions, making it difficult to secure a place online as tickets run out quickly.

This Wednesday, just before the start of the Lunar New Year celebrations, the quota of tickets by land will be increased from 50,000 to 65,000. After the pandemic, only a small number of flights and ships connected Hong Kong to the rest of mainland China. The land borders were kept virtually closed until the official lowering of the coronavirus danger level.

The quarantine regulations were stopped, international air traffic restrictions were cancelled and the borders of China were reopened. On the eve of this Friday’s festivities, the public can now be a step closer to the recovery of the direct train route to more distant cities such as Beijing, which was resigned before the pandemic.
