Chengdu - Chongqing Train Ticket Price

CNY 46.5

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.

    Thank you very much for this chance to give feedback! I am sorry I did not being able to get back to you earlier as I was quite busy after this 10 days business trip. Appreciate for your support and we will continue to use Travel China Guide in all of our future bookings.

    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.

    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.

    Fabulous service from Travel China guide. Train tickets were at my hotel as promised when I checked in, I was more than happy with the price for this service. Our trip was smooth and I'd highly recommend the fast train! If traveling to China, you can't go wrong with using Travel China guide!
