Asked by Pearl from USA | Nov. 07, 2019 17:46Reply
If I booked a train from Nanjing to Jinan, can I change to Shanghai to Jinan?
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Nov. 10, 2019 16:29

Thank you for your inquiry.

We are sorry that departure city cannot be changed once your ticket is booked well. You may cancel the old ticket and book new ticket instead, however, there will be cancellation fee occur. Or you can buy a ticket from Shanghai to Nanjing on the same train as most rides should originated from Shanghai. You only need to change seats one time along the way. Hope this information can help you.

How to get a ticket on G6 from Nanjing South to Jinan West?
I did not see any tickets available, please help!
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | May. 09, 2019 18:20

Thank you for your inquiry.

G6 is one of the fastest train which runs from Shanghai to Beijing, both Nanjing and Jinan are stopovers along its way. As it is one of the fastest ride, the tickets are always under great demands even from beginning station. Therefore, there can be few tickets offered for stopover stations. To guarantee your trip, we suggest you to choose other train first. If G6 become available, you may consider to make a change. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Is it convenient to use taxi at night time from Jinan West to the city?
Taxi can be easily found at station? I plan to book Sofitel Silver Plaza. Or it is better to have a hotel near West Station instead?
Answers (1)
Answered by Abel from COLOMBIA | Jan. 13, 2019 16:28

It is not hard to find taxi at a railway station. It would take around 50min by taxi to the hotel. The taxi fare may around CNY40, but during night time, it may be a little higher. If you are not only making a transit there, it would be still better to stay in city center area which is more convenient for shopping and visiting.
