All morning trains from Jinan to Yantai sold out on August 10?
Can I still get tickets at station or they are all sold out?

Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Jul. 25, 2019 18:09

Thank you for your inquiry.

A few of the morning trains did sold out already, no matter online or at station. There are some other rides in service but the tickets haven't begin for sale yet. These rides only begin for sale 10 days within the departure date, so you can wait until Aug 1st and recheck the schedule. There maybe some morning trains available. Sorry about the inconvenience.
