    To book the tickets through is very easy. If you are first time of taking a train, please arrive at train station as early as possible, as there are always many people and you can get lost in direction. This company, they recommended to arrive at train station 1.5 hours before the departure time which is efficient for first time travelers. If you traveled a lot, 30min is good enough.
