    My friend and I traveled to Beijing and Guangzhou in early March, we don't speak the language so we find an agent to help with our train tickets booking. Ms. Tiffany replied my enquiry quickly, she got all our tickets as requested and emailed me all the information I needed. Everything went smoothly. We loved this service.

    I came across this website on Tripadvisor. It was an informative and user-friendly website. You just need to pay a small and reasonable booking service fee, then they would do everything and saved you all hassle. I highly recommend this complete and fantastic service.

    It is very convenient to book train tickets through China train APP. I just search the train information and submit the online booking. After sending the payment, I receive the confirmation a few minutes later. I can check the order status through APP. Next I will still choose this APP to book train tickets. It is so easy.
