    Excellent service for the online ticket booking. We got our tickets at Guangzhou south train station. The train journey between Guangzhou and Hong Kong was clean and efficient, and the service on the train was friendly.

    The booking process and issuing of the e-tickets for collection at the railway stations in China worked very well.
    Made organising my journey simple and travelling by train straightforward.
    I would definitely recommend this service and will be using it again in the future for travel within China.

    I like to use the Chinatrains app. But it did not work as my Android Phone updated. The app is now dead. For me to book tickets, I must go through the website now. I hope your company can improve the stability of APP system, and it would be helpful for young travelers. Thanks and best regards.

    Fast and easy booking and payment process. I recommend you pick up the tickets at any train station to avoid delays or anything with delivery. At train station you can collect the tickets very easy in about 5-20 minutes depending on how crowded the ticket sale is at the station.
