Hi, I was informed that there is only discount for child. No discount for senior people. In fact, from what I saw, it is not a big difference between VIP and First. First class seat is enough for me. Surely, if you like you can have a try with the VIP seats, it is not a big price difference two.

Thank you for your inquiry.
The ticket begin for sale 28 days within the departure date. If the tickets for your trip already available for sale, we will confirm your ticket soon after you complete the booking. The delivery will be arranged when your hotel checkin date is approaching. Usually the express will reach your hotel about 1 or 2 days before your hotel checkin date only so that there is no chance of losing it. You can collect the express from hotel once you reach there.
