The Guangzhou North railway station (simplified Chinese: 广州北站; traditional Chinese: 廣州北站; pinyin: Guǎngzhōuběi Zhàn; Jyutping: gwong2 zau1 bak1 zaam6) is a railway station in Guangdong Province, China, opened in 1908. It is located in Huadu District in far northern suburbs of Guangzhou.[1]

The station is served both by the high-speed trains of the Wuhan–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway and by regular passenger trains on the original railway (Jingguang railway) running along the same route.[2]

Metro connection[edit]

Line 9 of the Guangzhou Metro opened on 28 December 2017, with the metro station located at the west side of the national rail station at Guangzhou North railway station, but due to the construction of the Guangzhou–Qingyuan intercity railway, the metro station is inaccessible from the national rail station. Therefore, passengers need to get off at the preceding station, Huacheng Lu, and walk along the road, or take a shuttle bus.[3]
