Stopover at Xining from Turpan to Chengdu
Hi, this is a repeat post as the earlier post appears to be deleted.
I am planning to take the Z232 from Turpan arriving the next morning at Xining at 8.59am.Would there be sufficient time for me to go to Qinghai Lake by bus and return to take the K1060 to Chengdu at 21:40hrs on the same day. A walkabout around QL would suffice. Also,is there a direct bus to QL from Xining Railway Station.Thanks.

The time is indeed very limited. Usually it is one day or two day trip. Also, most travelers would rent a car for this trip. If by public coach, it is more time-consuming. There is a coach station near Xining Railway Station. You can buy bus ticket to Chaka, Wulan etc. But indeed for this trip, the most convenient and frequently way is to rent a car.

Difference between Turpan to Chengdu train K454 and K2060
K454 hard sleepers are always fully booked whereas those on K2060 are available on the same day. Are the facilities on board these trains different? Both have the same travelling time.

Answered by Stella | Aug. 28, 2018 02:42

The facilities are not the reason, but the departure station. K454 departs from Kashgar and K2060 is from Urumqi. The K454 runs a longer distance, thus the tickets are harder to get. But may not always sold out. I see that for some days in Sep, there are still some beds available.

Thanks Stella for your reply. Makes sense to me now.

Urumqi to Beijing train hard sleeper August
I'd like to buy a train ticket from Urumqi do Beijing in the beginning of August. Is this period very busy? Is it ok to buy the ticket 2-3 days in advance and hope to get a hard sleeper? Beijing is quite a hot destination but is it so in the beginning of August?
Thank you

2 or 3 days in advance may be a little risky. It would be better if you buy it around one week before and check the availability online often

When I take the train cause I alight and go for their attraction and board the train again?
Will there be any stop over for a few hours before the train set off again

Answered by Thithat | Jan. 13, 2018 01:22

No, if you get off at a stopover station, you need to buy a new ticket to get on the next ride.

Two ports Khorgos and Alashankou can be used. There is a slow ride from Shenzhen to Urumqi and then you can take another ride to Khorgos or Alashankou. If you want high speed rides, you may follow a route like Shenzhen-Xian-Lanzhou-Urumqi-Khorgos or Alashankou. There are high speed rides for Shenzhen-Xian-Lanzhou-Urumqi trip.
