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.

    I was able to pick up my tickets just fine, thanks. The available (i.e. open) ticket office in the train station is not always obvious though. It is necessary to speak with the information desk first.

    I would like to say that I have been very pleased with the service you provided for our train tickets purchase. From start to confirmation of our booking it was dealt with professionally and efficiently. Information provided was clear. What I most appreciated was the communication initiated at every stage to ensure all arrangements were in place. I was notified of the delivery of the tickets to our hotel and tickets arrived at the hotel at good time.
    The train journey was very pleasant. The station at Chongqing was not far from town centre. We took a taxi but it is easily assessable by underground. The waiting room was spacious and pleasant. One drawback was not all signs are translated into English. Non Chinese travellers may have to guess the platform no. etc by the train no. The seats in the first class carriage were comfortable. The train was on time. Two hours journey on the train from Chongqing to Chengdu went smoothly and highly recommended as a transport option.
    I would recommend your service to other travellers and would certainly consider using your service next time we travel, on the basis of competitive quote of service of course.

    Our booking experience with you was OK. All was fine.

    Very satisfied with the support, clear communication, and constant updates. No issues getting the tickets from my hotel and using the tickets at the train stations. One thing that may be helpful for travelers that cannot read/write Mandarin, would be to supply a taxi card for the different train stations. For example, having a small print out to accompany each of the tickets where the traveler could hand off to the taxi driver and get to the different train stations. I had a little trouble showing the ticket only and caused a bit of confusion. It is a better experience for me this time traveling in first class cabin compared to the basic cabin, even though price different is not significant. I had a long wait time at Chongqing North train station this time and noticed that it is very underdeveloped. Nothing in terms of restaurants in the train station, only a few convenience stores.

    I would highly recommend your services to anyone visiting China!! The feedback, information and promptness of service with the delivery of tickets to my hotel were all excellent. The train journey itself was fabulous!! Punctual, very easy to check-in and boarding. All that should be said, allowing ample time for the large numbers involved. The trip itself was very confortable. The people were very friendly, and the services on the train were excellent. Again Thank you!! I have used your services previously and I will definitely use them again. Very professional and helpful....More
