Although the normal types cost less compared with bullet types, there are less departures or arrivals, and the environment in the carriages is not good. If you choose hard seats, especially during the holidays, it will be rather crowded and make you tiresome. Thus, if possible, you'd better choose bullet type. However, if you have no other choice rather than normal types, you'd better purchase a sleeper even though it's a short journey. The sleeper will be more comfortable and you can have a more comfortable trip.


Passengers can take a coach to travel from one city to the other and the ticket fare is almost the same as the second class seats on bullet trains. But it takes about 4.5 hours, a longer and not that comfortable journey, compared with a high speed rail trip.

    We booked the train tickets from Beijing to Harbin. We chose to collect the paper tickets at train station. In the beginning, we were worried, as we cannot speak Chinese. We did not know how to collect the paper tickets at train station. After we receive the confirmation, we felt we can do it, as the confirmation is both in English and Chinese, We only print out the information and show it to the staff, which we did in China. The staff issued us the paper tickets quickly. Everything worked perfectly. ...More

    Due to business reason, we come to China several times a year. The last time we visited was in December, 2019. Long before, we ought to be in line to collect the paper tickets at the train station. While, last time, we were informed that we only need to show the passport to check in. How convenient it is. Under such situation, the passengers could get to the train station around 30 minutes before the departure time.

    I have been using China Trains to book my high-speed train tickets for almost a year now. Highly reliable service, fast, easy to pay. When we've had challenges getting last-minute bookings, China Travel has been diligent 24/7 working with me via WeChat to get the booking sorted. Thanks to China Trains.
