    Everything worked well, thank you - except that I had to go to the train station in advance to collect the ticked. Would it be possible to print it out from the automatic machines?

    Hello!The train booking and overall experience went great. Good detailed instructions, which are very important for a non-Chinese-speaker like me. I only had some problems when receiving the first email after paying for the train tickets: The email was saying that the tickets would have been issued 30 days before departure and that was very confusing, since our trip was the next week.Thanks for helping us in making our journey to China easier.

    No major complaints on our side, we had no issues with the train trip, with the exception of the somewhat a delayed departure from the HK train station. This did worried me about catch my next train to Chengdu. Our seating was OK, but it would be better if you can choose a front row with space for luggage. It would be good if we could've seen the seating layout on the train previously. Toilets were clean. Overall, I would recommend your service again and would gladly take the train from HK to Guangzhou and Guangzhou to Chengdu....More
