No sleeper tickets on trains from Guangzhou to Haikou?
I want to get a sleeper bed for this overnight sleeper trip, but online there is only "hard seat" listed. I also checked tickets for many days but never see a sleeper bed. Is this normal? If I book a hard seat, is it possible to change to sleeper bed on train?

Thank you for your inquiry.

For this trip, the departure city Guangzhou is not the beginning stations of these rides. There are hardly tickets offered for this route. Sometimes, when the date is very closer, for example, less than 1 week before departure, sleeper beds may offered from Guangzhou. You may wait more days. You may also book a hard seat firstly and then ask to change ticket to sleeper bed later if they become available. However, there could be a change fee up to 20% of ticket price occurs. Hope for your advanced notice.
