    The trains in China are excellent and I highly recommend it. The bullet trains are all very modern and clean. Also audio announcements in English and Mandarin on the trains make the travel experience more enjoyable. I love the bullet train and recommend you try it.

    I never thought that the ticket collection was so easy. Based on my previous understanding, train stations could be difficult to negotiate in China and English is rarely spoken. But i downloaded a Wechat APP and contacted with TCG, they offered me details as a picture and i got all my tickets after showing the train staff this picture and our passports. I even didn't say a word. LOL.

    Ticket booking is fine. Price is OK. I never have any problem getting hard copy at station. I couldn't ask for more.

    The train trip worked out great. My biggest issue was with using Paypal. They made the experience difficult because I was booking while already in Santou, though I am from the US. The experience with TravelChinaGuide was pretty good, but Paypal made it challenging.
