It will take about 3.5 hours and around CNY600 by high speed train. It is obvious that the ticket fare of flights is higher than that of high speed trains.

    This was my second trip to China. And I have always been moved by train. I think it's the best way to visit your country, and your work makes things much easier for those who can not book the train directly. Certainly if I return to China, yet I will use your booking service.

    The booking centre was very efficient with a very good log of communication and progress updates. I would like to be able to pay using Papal.

    The train journey was very smooth and comfortable. It is very scenic. An email of the digital map of the journey and towns passed along the trip would be very interesting and useful for passengers.

    My wife and I would like to sincerely thank you for all the work and bookings that you have done for us during our recent China trip!
    Everything that we booked worked out extremely well and we were most assured and thankful that you answered all of our many emails so quickly. Always so friendly and patiently answered.
    Our biggest concern, being so far away, was that the train tickets were booked on time and of course that we actually got the tickets we requested. And of course they were.
    There wasn't much in the way of food service on the way so I would recommend taking some snacks for the journey. There was hot water available to make some coffee and tea if you brought it with you.
    I would definitely recommend your service should I have the opportunity.
    Thanks so much. I would rate your service 5 out of 5
