Chengdu - Chongqing Train Ticket Price

USD 7

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.
 

Coach

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.

    Being a foreigner, I booked a train from Chengdu to Chongqing, but did not realize that there are 3 stations in Chengdu. The fact that I did not know my train is from Chengdu East Station, I went to the main station. I got to know this only at the time I tried to enter the station and the staff stopped me!

    I tied a taxi to Chengdu East Station but I still missed it for 10min or so. I was so desperate and called TravelChinaGuide, their advise gave me a hope which did worked finally. I managed to change the tickets to a later train, without cost!!! I really loved this thoughtful rules but if they can just offer station name in English it would be surely even better. If I did not went to a wrong station, this problem will not be a problem. But anyway I am glad I made it and this is a memorable experience!...More

    Everything was great, a very pleasant journey, we were in coach one and had the hole of business section to ourselves, which was great the journey was smooth and quiet, served drinks and a meal. Just to let you know that seats 1A 1F were the two pod like seats at the front/back of the train. This is not a complaint but I would have thought that coach one would have been at the front of the train not the back.

    Booking and collection is ok.

    For Foreigner like us, you have to go to special counter for collection as we dont have local China ID.

    We cant go through normal auto entrance which require Local ID scan.

    So MAKE SURE you bring your Passport which is a MUST as they need to view and confirm.

    Otherwise, it is good to book through here to ensure tickets availability.

    We didnt buy 1 leg of the train journey as not sure the timing, we ended up having a " standing ticket" so book early, plan well.

    Booking was perfect, thank you. I received the tickets at the train station in 2 minutes. The North train station in Chongqing is so huge, but very well organized! The train is very good, the speed was max 300 km/ h, but the seats are not comfortable enough because there are no bars for legs, please make them.
