Thank you for your inquiry.

Sleeper beds are assigned randomly by railway company system, we are sorry that we cannot choose a lower bed for you directly. However, we will try our best for that. If possible, you may consider to have a try of our delivery service to increase the chance of getting a lower bed. For this delivery option, we will buy tickets for you at counter and we will ask station staff to choose lower bed for you if available.

If I make a transit in Xi'an, how long it takes to change the train?
Do I need to exit and then go through the security check again? Or I can go directly to the second ride?

Thank you for your inquiry.
If you can collect the paper tickets for both trips in advance before the trip to Xi'an, usually 30min is possible for this transit. You can use the transfer passage to back from platform to the waiting hall directly, therefore, you do not need to go through the security check again. If you will travel with heavy luggage or with kinds/senior passengers, you may consider to prepare about 1 hour between to avoid any rush. Hope this can help you.
