How can I book first class seat on train G319?
I want to book first class on this train from Chongqing to Guilin, but I cannot see any tickets online. Are they fully booked already?

Thank you for your inquiry.

May I know the detailed date for this trip? First class seats are indeed hard to get on G319 as it runs a long distance trip to HK finally after stopping at Guilin. First class seats are offered to HK firstly. If there is no ticket online anymore, you may consider second class seats and try to upgrade to first class on train if there are free seats. Or you may consider to change to an earlier train D1791 instead. Sorry about the inconvenience.

If it possible if I book a ticket from Chongqing to Guilin and extend it Yangshuo on the train?
I want to buy ticket to Yangshuo in fact but there is no ticket for sale. I found that there is tickets offered to Guilin on the train which is one stop before Yangshuo. Do you think this option is workable? If possible, we want to avoid the trouble of changing trains. Thank you for your advice.

Thank you for your inquiry.

It is workable to extend tickets to longer destination if the train carrying capacity allows. Usually it is Ok to extend ticket if you will not travel during busy holiday time. After your boarding, please find the steward and inform them your request before you reach Guilin. You can pay for price difference in cash.

Your hotel is near to Guilin north station. Only the D1793 will arrive at Guilin north station from Chongqing. And 3 high speed rides are available from Guilin north station to Yangshuo, one morning ride, and two afternoon rides.
