Can I buy trian tickets directly from China train corporation in stead of an agent?
Answers (2)
Answered by Brock | May. 08, 2020 19:06

Yes, sure! You can buy tickets directly at any railway station in China mainland by holding your travel document. Their online official website should not work for non Chinese people, but always works at station ticket counter.
Answered by Adam from CHINA | Jun. 12, 2020 20:07

Of course, you can buy tickets with your passport

Restrictions on sharp object for China trains
What is maximum length of a knife blade

Answered by Raines from PANAMA | Nov. 24, 2019 18:05

It seems no policy mentioned about the details, it mainly depends on the judgement by station staff on spot. However, it is true that stations become more strict about it now, even small fruits knife are not allowed.

Answered by Ervine from UNITED KINGDOM | Apr. 25, 2019 19:10

"3 destinations"? Do you mean 3 different trips? You can add the trips when searching the schedule online, for example input "trip 1", "trip 2" and "trip 3"

The only official website would be, but it is a pity that it only offer Chinese service. If you cannot read Chinese, it cannot work. I booked a few tickets to Suzhou with this website, the booking process went well. You can have a try.
