Shenzhen to Shanghai Train

Hi,

Is it easy to get a train from Shenzhen to Shanghai? We'll be travelling from Hong Kong then will stay in Shenzhen for one day/night to see the sights and do some shopping before taking the train to Shanghai. Can we just go to Shenzhen station and get tickets on the day itself or do we have to book in advance?

How much are hard sleepers to Shanghai from Shenzhen?

Thanks!

Better to get the train tickets the day before if you want a sleeper ticket. Even then there might not be any left. The T212 train leaves around 1328 and arrives in shanghai around 0658. Hard sleeper is around 400 Rmb. Check for exact times and fares at the station. See http://www.travelchinaguide.com/china-trains/ for approximate times and fares.

There is a shop in Hung Hom Station, Kowloon that will get you tickets, but they charge HK$100 a ticket commission.
