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.

    We took the train from Chengdu to Xian by high speed train. We bought the tickets from the China Train App. The train booking procedure is very easy and convenient. The train trip was pleasant. We visited Terracotta Warriors. All of us felt it was amazing, when we saw the Warriors. If possible, we will go there again.

    Long before, only the normal trains are on service from Hong Kong to Guangzhou, which take two hours. Now, the bullet trains are on operating and they are able to save one hour. It is so amazing. As usual, last time, we purchased the tickets from this agency and we were informed that the tickets could not be cancelled or changed if we miss the train. Thanks for the valuable information.

    We are sorry that we have to cancel all bookings with you due to the outbreak of corona virus. It is very pity that we cannot visit China. We have been looking forward this journey for 2 years. Hope everything will come back to normal as soon as possible. We will contact you if we confirm our plan next time.
