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.

 Major Attractions:
 In Shenzhen: Splendid China - Folk Culture Villages, Window of the World, Shenzhen Happy Valley, Dameisha Beach, Xiaomeisha Beach
 In Guilin and nearby areas: Elephant Trunk Hill, Reed Flute Cave, Seven Stars Park, Li River, Impression Sanjie Liu, West Street (Xi Jie), Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces

Shenzhen-Guilin High Speed Train
Second Class Carriage

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.

 Overnight:
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!

    The booking process was efficient and accurate. We had no problems exchanging our voucher for tickets at the pick up window in Shenzhen.
    Check in at the train station was very easy even though no English was spoken. Signs are in English giving directions to the pick up office and once the voucher was presented the tickets were issued immediately. The waiting area is well equipped with a variety of restaurants, shops and restrooms which were all very clean. Boarding was on time and the first class car was spacious, quiet and clean. Would not hesitate to use your service again in the future....More

    Thank you very much for all of your help in arranging our trains around China, we had an excellent time. We would like to share my idea as below:

    1. TCG IS Excellent. Very helpful, quick to respond to questions/queries, very knowledgeable and obviously experienced. We were kept updated on our tickets/purchases.

    2. The trains were brilliant, very organized and efficient. Arriving at the stations were quite hectic (Shenzhen North station was lovely and new), but security was always reasonably quick, ticket checks were a bit of a squash, waiting hall were either crowded or not required and staff were very helpful. Finding our carriage was very easy and everything went smoothly. This 3 hours trip went very fast and we reach Guilin at planned time. It was an excellent way of traveling. We highly recommended it to other travelers.

    Many thanks again for all of your help. We have already recommended you to friends and family thinking of traveling to China - It was all a great experience and you made everything easy for us.

    Warmest regards,
    Stef

    Service is very good. But your website, which we used for initial bookings, has some technical issues. Sometimes is just went black, or we received an error.

    We found your assistance was very helpful - Candy Wang as well as the guy who talked with me on the phone during the payment through Paypal issue were very much helpful.Keep up the great work! I'd recommend your service next time my friends and family would need such assistance.

    The booking process was great as you continuously updated us the status of the booking (booking made, payment received, tickets were purchased, sent to the hotel, received by the receptionist of the hotel, etc). To some may be annoying but to us it was a great way to keep the track.

    What we also found useful was your guide to come earlier to the stations etc as yes the Shenzhen North Station was busy that you wanted to get there earlier

    The only hassle was the payment process through Paypal as they somehow were changing the internal process that they froze my payment to you. I'd suggest you also receive payment through regular credit card for easier booking.

    Train (1st class) was quite comfortable, too bad we got the seats right beside the train wall, not the windows otherwise we could have seen more of the scenery.

    Don't expect everyone in the station and train could speak English.
