K689/K690 and K1573 run between Xi'an South Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station. K1002/K1004 runs between Xi'an Railway Station and Chongqing Railway Station. In contrast, Xi'an Railway Station is close to the city center and has convenient transportation around, while South Station in southern suburban area is difficult to reach. Only a few buses are available. Chongqing Railway Station is closer to the city center and passengers can go other places easily from here either by city bus or subway. North Station also has subway and many city buses around.

It is advised to travel by overnight sleeper trains including K689, K1573, and K1002/K1004. Passengers had better purchase a soft or hard sleeper to have a good rest onboard. 

Xi'an – Chongqing Train vs. Flight

Xi'an to Chongqing flights usually take 1.5 hours for a single journey. This is a quite good choice for people who are pressed for time. However, flight delays can easily occur because of changeable weather and air traffic control. In this case, it may waste some time.

In contrast, bullet trains are punctual in most cases and the leg room onboard is wider than that on a flight. Also, if count in the travel time to/from airports and time used for boarding, the total consumed time of high speed trains and flight will be no big difference.

If you are a budget traveler, normal speed train is a preferable option, especially when you choose the overnight sleeper trains including K689, K1573, and K1002/K1004, which depart in the evening and arrive in the next morning. Traveling by any of them can save you the day time and one-night accommodation fee. Also, it costs less, even a soft sleeper berth costs less than an economy class seat on flight.

Xi'an – Chongqing High Speed Railway

Xi'an – Chongqing Direct High Speed Railway is promising to commence construction in 2018. This line will run along a different route and when opened, the travel time will be greatly shortened to 3 hours. The designed speed is 350km/h (186 mph).

What's the difference between these G trains and also G and D trains?
I want to book second class seats for my parents and I saw ticket price is very different. Would you please explain so I could make better choice? Thank you.

Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Dec. 29, 2019 16:27

Thank you for your inquiry.

The price difference is mainly caused by the running route. These rides with second class seats costing CNY409 run via Chengdu before reaching Chongqing. They run a much longer routes so the price is much higher. For facilities onboard, there is no much difference. It is recommended to choose them with lower price and shorter route.

Soft Sleeper Train - Possible to request for lower bed
I am a big lady so impossible to climb up the upper bed. Is it possible to request the lower bed if i book online? What if i book at the counter on the day itself? Thanks.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Beds are assigned randomly by railway system, so we cannot select a lower bed for you directly. You can inform us your lower bed request as a remark in the booking form, we will try our best for that. If possible, you may consider our delivery service to your hotel in China. For delivery option, we can go to station and ask the ticket counter for a lower bed. The chance of getting lower bed will be bigger in this way. Hope for your kind understanding.

Ending time of metro line 2 from Xi'an North direction to Bell Tower direction
Answers (1)
Answered by Siani from USA | Jun. 02, 2019 18:00

The line 2 ends at 11:50pm from the north station. I think the operation time take the high speed rail schedule into consideration. It should be always able to get metro after train arrival.
