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.

    Your services in booking China train tickets are prompt and good. We got our paper train tickets from Guilin North Railway Station one day before our date of departure without any fee easily. The train took off exactly on the scheduled time. The maximum speed of the train was 245 Km/hr, but it moved very smoothly and comfortably. We arrived the waiting room for the train one hour before the scheduled time. Finally, we do not want our email address being published on your website.

    It was a great trip! Thank you!! The booking was simple, we received the tickets well ahead of time!! The journey was safe and easy especially being our first trip. Thank you so much for your help as we were a little nervous. The facilities were great and we enjoyed the quietness in the vip section with room as well for our big luggages, We did notice the seats seemed more comfortable in the regular class though. But your consultants helped made our trip a wonderful experience and I will be sure to recommend you to all my family and friends, I will also take a few minutes to go on your website, Thank you!!
