    I booked a ticket from Chengdudong to Beijingxi with TravelChinaGuide. Picking up the tickets with my passport was easy, with the printout with Chinese on it to give to the customer service agent. Boarding the train in Chengdu gave me a big red X on the automated reader, but the employee at the station waved me through. Don't know what it means, but ok. Same arriving in Beijing. Train experience was great, very comfortable, lots of room, employees on the train were very nice too, with enough English to be able to understand each other. Overall, it all worked out pretty well....More
