Is there any cabin for 3 passengers?
We are 3 female travelers and prefer a cabin of our own. Is there any good idea?

If you like, you can have a try to buy one more child ticket to hold the 4th soft sleeper bed in cabin. Soft sleeper cabin is shared by each 4 people. So you will have a whole cabin. Well, I need to say that this does not works prefectly every time. I did it before and occasionally, the empty bed was sold by train staff, to these who want to upgrade from hard sleeper. So wish you a good luck!

Yes, it is true that South and North Square support different rail service. Usually most high speed rides use North Square and South Square for normal rides. If you collect the paper ticket out in advance, it will printed on the paper tickets too.

Where is Lanzhou west station situated?
Hi, 4 of us will be arriving in Lanzhou airport around 16:30 in late Feb 2019. A couple of questions: 1) Is there a shuttle bus available from Lanzhou airport to Lanzhou west station? 2) What’s the address of Lanzhou west station?
Answers (1)
Answered by Lim from SINGAPORE | Dec. 16, 2018 17:38

No shuttle bus is available from the airport to the west station. So you can take a taxi directly, which takes about 1.5 hours and the fare is about CNY150. The address of Lanzhou west station is: Xijin West Road of Qilihe District.
