Scenery along the Way

The bullet train runs from a big modern city to another, passing by the famous Karst landscape. Along the way, you may see busy cities squeezed with skyscrapers as well as quiet rural villages surrounded by clear rivers and green hills; you may see urban white collars rushing to work, as well as farmers working hard in the paddy fields; you may see roads full of flowing vehicles, as well as buffalos wondering leisurely on countryside field ridges…Totally two different visages and life styles of China. It is a rail ride, also a short China discovery trip.

Which one to choose - high speed or overnight sleeper train?

 High speed:
They are very fast, saving a lot of time. Usually, they are departing from and arriving at newly-built modern stations with nice environment. Besides, the trains are punctual in most cases. Passengers don’t need to worry about time delay. The facilities and environment onboard are also better than normal ones.

Running overnight, they save day time and accommodation spending, suitable for those budget travelers. However, as the duration is relatively long and the environment onboard are not so nice; a sleeper is recommended than a seat.

    We booked train tickets from Shenzhen to Guilin during our recent trip in early in August. Everything went well as plan, in fact better than our expectation. Before the trip, I heard many stories about scam and language problem. These stories worried me a lot, but I found out that it is completely not necessary. Thank you for helping us with the tickets which made this holiday a life memory!
