Zhaoqing is about to get a lot closer to Hong Kong. The most rural of the Greater Bay Area’s nine municipalities inside Guangdong will soon have a direct train running on the High-Speed Railway. It will take only an hour and 20 minutes to the Kowloon West station.
According to the Zhaoqing government, this is what the fast line (G319/320) will take. It will run in the afternoons. A slower train (G6579/6580) will run in the morning and take two hours.
Apparently, more than 200,000 Hong Kong residents originate from Zhaoqing. The city is home to 875 Hong Kong-owned enterprises, which invested RMB673 million there last year, making up 71.3% of Zhaoqing’s total foreign investment.Read more (in Chinese).
