Hard Sleepers VS. Soft Sleepers VS. Deluxe Soft Sleepers

Hard Sleepers

In a hard sleeper cabin, there are six berths, three on each side. No doors are installed between the cabin and the corridor where also has seats for passengers. Owning to the limited height in each sleeper, travelers in a top or middle berth have problems of sitting straight. As a result, the bottom berth is the best choice for those who wants to book a hard sleeper.

Soft Sleepers

In the soft sleeper cabin of Beijing to Foshan train, four sleeper berths are set together with a door installed. The door makes the cabin a completely separated small room, which can keep passengers from the noise in the corridor. The space of each soft sleeper berth is big enough for people to sit straight during the night, so either of the top or bottom berth is suggested. 

Deluxe Soft Sleepers

Except for the door between the cabin and the aisle, a deluxe sleeper cabin has more facilities for passengers such as a sofa, a washing room and a cabinet, making the cabin more like a moving hotel room. Two passengers share one deluxe sleeper cabin.
