There will be a free luggage 20kg per person, you can also take 5kg (1 piece) with you into the cabin. If you have more than 20kg, there should be extra cost around CNY30 per extra 1kg.

Xi'an to Harbin train
Are there deluxe soft sleepers on this train. We are a couple and would prefer not to share a sleeping compartment. We booked train travel last year through your company, and was very pleased with the service, and will book again this year. The intended travel date would be somewhere around the 4th of December 2019.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We are sorry that there is no deluxe soft sleeper for this trip. The best class offered is soft sleeper cabin. You may consider to use deluxe soft sleeper to Beijing first and then change other high speed train to Harbin. Hope this information can help you.
