    The train journey is superb. The station is large with many seats there, passengers queue to enter is orderly, the platform is
    wide and easy to access the train cabin. There are customer service personnel along the platform and inside the cabin to guide you. The train speed reached a maximum of 201 K/Hour and is very smooth.. I enjoy the ride.

    The service was perfect. The tickets were at our hotel when we arrived – although, because the receptionist’s English was so poor, it was some time before we realized that the package handed to us included the tickets. The train journey was exciting and the train departed and arrived on time.
    The only additional advice you could give (which we already knew about) is that despite the wide overhead luggage rack large pieces of luggage need to be stored at the end of each carriage and if one is travelling with a very large suitcase it is advisable to get to the station early. We were allowed on the train half an hour before departure which we understood to be normal.
    This was our first experience of a bullet train and we loved it.

    Everything worked fine. Train tickets were delivered to my hotel prior to arrival, and were available upon check-in. Overall, the online service was excellent. The frequent updates on the status of the tickets were reassuring.

    Thank you for organising our train travels for us. We had a wonderful experience on our journey, and we found train travel very easy to access and extremely comfortable. Once we found the ticket office, which was easy to locate, we collected our pre-booked tickets. From there, finding the train number, platform, carriage and seats were simple. We were even able to do this in the most remote, non english speaking areas! We would recommend taking with you a drink and a snack, particularly for a long journey, as at times there were no food vending machines at the stations. However, there are boiling water stations everywhere, where you can fill your tea or noodle bowls, which are very popular. We would definitely choose travelling by train throughout China again. The fast trains were amazing and highly recommended....More
