Second class seats booking with luggage over 130cm
We are two people traveling from Hangzhou to Xiamen by bullet train. We have one cabin luggage and one large checked luggage over 130cm. Would this be a problem? If we book first class seats, will there be more space for our luggage?

Thank you for your inquiry.

Luggage policy is the same for all seat classes. Luggage racks above seats are also in same size for both first class and second class. Although the policy allow 130cm only, stations are not strict with this policy. You can still take your luggage with you even it is larger than 130cm. Hope this information can help you.

from Xiamen North Station or Gaoqi International Airport to hotel
I am planning to go to Marco Polo Xiamen Hotel and stay for 3 days. I am considering if it is better to take a flight or bullet ride from Hangzhou. The duration seems not really a big difference, but want to know if it is more convenient to go from North Station or airport? Thank you.

It seems there are tourist bus from both North Station and airport to places near your hotel. The tourist bus from North Station has a stop at the wharf which is about 1.5km away from the hotel. The bus from airport has a stop at People's Hall which is about 500m away. The airport is a little closer to the hotel. But if you take a taxi, this is not a big difference.
