    In the high speed train seats are not clean. Make it clean as well as washable seat cover used that’s better to make it clean seats. Wash after 24 hrs at least otherwise dirty .

    Thank you for your kind assistance.
    I traveled for two months across China, and everything was good with train and flight reservations.
    Also when one flight was canceled by the air company, you scheduled a new one for me.
    Next time I’ll come in China (and Tibet), for sure I’ll call you again. Thank you

    I had a great experience both in the booking of the trains I needed and in the actual train rides themselves. It is an excellent way to travel within China for the business I conduct. I will use the trains almost every time I come to China, which is quite often.
