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 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.

    I found Travel China Guide online and got them to book my train tickets from Xian to Chengdu then Chengdu to Chongqing. The booking process was so simple and they had all my tickets delivered to my hotel in Xi’an. The train trips were smooth and the trains were punctual.

    Our daytime high speed train from Chengdu to Chongwing is quiet and clean. Comparely the train to Xian is horrible, very noisy and baby crying all night long. We did not sleep well at all.

    Excellent service provided to me, in particlar you notified me the problem of changing trains. If you did not inform me about it, I will surely miss my second train. Thank you and keep up the good work.

    All went very well thank you. Very reasonable service fee, nearly half the price offered by a local travel agent. My only suggestion is I was a little dubious about paying with paypal as I don't trust paypal very much.

    Booking process went smoothly although different from Europe. Trains in China went smoothly. I would recommend high speed trains for mid-distance trip. They are far better then planes. Stations were very large but functioned well. The only problem is that there is very few English service offered which is not convenient for non-Chinese speakers.
