Why travel by overnight sleeper trains?

1. As you can see above, they depart in the afternoon/evening and arrive in the next morning, or depart in the evening and arrive around the next noon, which saves the daytime for sightseeing.
2. For budget travelers, they also save one-night hotel expense.
3. Compared with seats, sleepers can ensure a better rest.
