Are these trains from Chengdu to Xi'an always on time?
What would happen to our ticket Xi'an/Pingyao if our first trip reached Xi'an too late?

Bullet trains are usually on time, but surely it still happens occasionally. In case, it happened and you missed the connection train, you can ask for free change to later trains or a full refund of second ticket at station

It is not hard to make a transfer if you hold a connection tickets. Now, many high speed stations has transfer service for connection tickets holders who will depart within 30min. You may see some signs like "transfer" on platform. You can follow these signs to get back to waiting room directly on second floor and then checkin for the second trip.

I plan to visit Xi'an for half day for Terra Cotta Warriors and then to Pingyao.
Do you think the time is enough for visiting?

Answered by Simmons from USA | Dec. 11, 2018 17:25

It is possible if you take the first ride to Xi'an and the second ride to Pingyao. You would have about 3 hours for visiting in Terra Cotta Warriors. I heard there is shuttle bus from the station to the Terra Cotta Warriors. Or you may book a half day tour for convenience.
