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.

    Chinese people are kind-hearted. It is our first time to China and it is recommended to set up WeChat before going to China, which is useful.

    Ivy Zheng was very prompt to reply my emails - i always had a lot of questions. It was my first trip to China and i got satisfied answers every time. As a green hand in China without knowing any Chinese, these information was a great help. Ivy issued my all my train tickets online, offered me ticket Pickup Nos and bilingual instructions. With no worries about transfer between cities, we had good time in Beijing, Xian, Chengdu! Amazing.

    The service was perfect. I always received quick replies to my answers. The only suggestion I can give is about the activation of an online credit card payment procedure directly on your website. I was surprised to find only PayPal when trying to pay for my bookings.
