Can our family get together in one cabin?
We are a family of 4 including a 6 years old. We would like to have a soft sleeper cabin of our own on train Z1 to Changsha. How can I book a cabin of our own? I cannot see this option online. Please advise, thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We will always try our best to get the 4 beds together in same cabin for a group of 4 passengers. This is no problem as long as there are still empty cabin available for sale. You can also leave us this cabin request as a remark in our booking form, at the bottom of the page. We will be able to notice it. In case there is no empty cabin for sale, we will inform you by email.

Answered by Bill from AUSTRALIA | Nov. 22, 2018 17:31

Yes, I read that they runs on Beijing-Guangzhou High Speed Rail Line, so they pass by Changsha as well. As I know G79 and G83 should be Fuxinghao with top speed of 350km/h.
