    The train tickets arrived at my hotel in a timely manner, well worth the USD7 delivery fee. The concierge had it ready when I checked in. Everything went perfectly fine. Thank you for your reliable and professional service.

    You need to update your website on instruction to collect tickets at the train station.

    In accordance with the instruction, we went around to find the ticket collection counters but all were shut. Then

    the staff told us we only need to scan the documents at the departure gate we used to purchase the tickets.

    Other than the initial inconvenience, all went well.

    I like travel by train on the ground not flying in the sky, and I think train is one of the greatest pleasures way of travelling. I tried many trains around the world from Europe to Asia. Honestly, the bullet train in China is clean and on time but noisy. Anyhow, it should be a good choice to have a train trip in China.
