To have a good sleep and a more comfortable trip, travelers are highly recommended to book a sleeper instead of hard seat. It is not recommended to take 1461/ 1462 though the ticket price is a little cheaper. They take longest time and have more stop-bys along the trip.


Alternatively, there are flights available between. But the flight tickets usually cost much more than rail tickets. Sometimes during the off season, good discount may be offered. Passengers can make a comparison based on the schedule and price. Also, please kindly notice that airports in both cities are far from the city center and you’d better reserve enough time for transfer.

Is abailable fast train from urumqi to nanjing and how much time

Answered by Fletcher from CANADA | Aug. 04, 2019 17:53

NO, only slow trains. But if you want to use high speed ride, you can consider to go to Lanzhou first and stay Lanzhou for one night, then continue the trip by high speed ride to Nanjing, so it still takes 2 days.

Hello, recently I found some trains like D701, D705 etc. runs to Nanjing
Are these also high speed trains? And they will stop at main station, not South Station?

Answered by Palmer from INDIA | Apr. 14, 2019 17:30

These are also called high speed rides, but indeed not really much faster than normal sleeper rides. As they are new rides, the facilities should be better than other normal type. They did stop at the main station instead of South Station, so closer to city center.

Is second class seat carriage crowded and noisy?
I heard there can be people standing in carriage? So there might be some one stand near you during the whole 4 hours journey?

Answered by Diego | Nov. 26, 2018 18:51

There are indeed standing ticket for sale on some of the high speed trains, but seems not for this trip. So, there should be no other passengers standing in the carriage. Well, however, if it can be a quiet and enjoyable trip, it is by luck.
