They will save you the day time and one-night hotel expenditure. What's more, you are advised to purchase a hard sleeper or soft sleeper berth beforehand for an overnight journey.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Passengers can still change trains within station. As no paper ticket is needed, passengers can show their travel document at station instead when changing between trains. Hope this information can help you.

Terracotta Worriors
How can I get from Zhenzhou to the terracotta warriors and back in a day? How long do we need to spend at the warriors?

Answered by Wesley | Jan. 11, 2019 01:30

The visiting may around 3 hours, but you need time for transfer as well. Maybe at least 1 hour by taxi one way. So you may need at least 6 hours for this visiting. It would be more convenient to join a one day tour and back to Zhengzhou with late evening train.

Can I get off at Huashan for one day visit and then continue my trip to Xi'an?
Answers (1)
Answered by Frederica | Nov. 21, 2018 22:44

In China, one ticket can only be used for one trip. If you get off at Huashan, then the ticket is useless. So you cannot back to a later train to Xi'an. You would need to buy the tickets for separate trips: Shanghai to Huashan and then Huashan to Xi'an.
