I am traveling in February 2019. Should I buy tickets before i arrive in Beijing or when I arrive?

It would be better to book online in advance. February is the Spring Festival, the busiest time of a year. The tickets out from Beijing are always hard to get.

Answered by Anthony from USA | Oct. 18, 2018 17:52

the platform cannot know in advance, but would be after your arrival at the station. You can find your waiting room based on the train number. Then you can go though the chekcing gate and reach your platform. It doest not matter if you enter from south square or North square. After you enter the station, it is the same building.

There is no direct rail to HK, you can take a sleeper ride to Shenzhen or Guangzhou first and then to HK.

For long distance trip, some time the tickets may sold out on the day of travel, so it would be better if you could buy it in advance. If you want to buy it after your arrival, it is recommended to check the availability often.

Can you pick up prepaid tickets the day before departure?
Are you allowed to pick up tickets you bought online the day before departure so you can save time from having to pick them up the day of departure? I bought tickets from Beijing to Xi'an for Saturday October 20th but would like to pick them up on Friday October 19th. Is that possible to do?
