Tips for traveling by S2 trains:

1. The S2 trains stop in Huangtudian Railway Station in downtown Beijing. It is close to Huoying subway station along subway line 8 and line 13.

2. The tickets cannot be booked online or bought in advance. It is advised to go to Huangtudian early, especially when traveling in a peak season.

3. Seats on the train are not numbered. Passengers should get on as quickly as possible. Otherwise, no seat will be left and they may need to stand all the way to the destination.

4. Passengers holding a Transportation Smart Card with a balance of more than CNY 16 can take this train by swiping the card. No paper ticket will be required then. The transportation card can be bought at many subway stations in Beijing.

    We have an unforgettable experience in Xian, Chengdu and Chongqing. We booked all train tickets with TravelChinaGuide and received the paper tickets once we arrived at our hotel in Xian. Their service was efficient and swift. It was wise to choose such a reliable and responsiable travel agency.

    I thank you for all the effort you have already done for us. We had a lovely journey in China. The Chinese people are very good in creating magnificent landscape, like the Great Wall and Terra-Cotta Warriors. My parents were very impressed by the ancient buildings in Xian and Beijing. Hope we can get back to you next time and visit China again.
