High speed trains at midnight?
I saw some G and D trains around 2 to 4am in the early morning online. The page says the earliest one is at 8am however. Is this schedule correct? I am looking for trip in early February. Please advise, thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Usually high speed rides only runs during normal day time. However, during Spring Festival Rush, some high speed rides may added at night time to fill the huge needs. After the rush time, these rides will be removed. Schedule in early February has not confirmed yet. You may choose the most preferred departure time online first, in case the one selected is no longer in service, we will inform you 30 days in advance.

No, they only have discount policy for kids. I heard that kid under 120cm do not need a ticket and kid under 150cm can buy a discount ticket with 50% of an adult ticket price.

In fact if they are both business class seats, there is no difference. Well, the detailed design maybe a little different like color etc., but they are standard seats, so should have no big difference. Not very sure why the price is different however :-(
