Asked by Trenton from AUSTRALIA | Jan. 05, 2020 23:36Reply
Is there place for my luggage in second class? I am taking G824 to Shenzhen North
I have 2 pieces of large suitcase, is it OK to board train in second class seat? Is there extra fee for the one extra luggage?

Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Jan. 06, 2020 17:31

Thank you for your inquiry.

There is luggage rack above the seat for your luggage. If your luggage cannot fit the rack, there will be racks between carriages for large sized luggage. You do not need to pay for extra piece of luggage. Although the policy allow 20kg luggage only, stations hardly check about it. You can take all your luggage with you as long as it is not extremely large in size. Hope this information can help you.

Hi, is there any high speed overnight train from Xi'an to Shenzhen?
I used to use this type of train from Shanghai to Shenzhen at evening time and arrived the next early morning. The timing is perfect. Is there any chance of getting this type of train?

Answered by Viviana from AUSTRALIA | Jun. 03, 2019 18:12

There is no such trip from Xi'an, only day time high speed rides or slow overnight rides. But if you do prefer this type of ride, you can consider a transfer option: Xi'an-Zhengzhou-Shenzhen. There are many high speed rides a day to Zhengzhou and every Friday to next Monday, one overnight high speed sleeper ride from Zhengzhou to Shenzhen

From Shenzhen North to Xi'an, how much is second and first class?
If I book now for my trip in July, will I get early bird discount?
Answers (1)
Answered by Roger from FRANCE | Feb. 14, 2019 17:56

The ticket price for a second class seat is around USD135. The ticket price for a first class seat should be USD212. One way ticket. There is no early bird discount for tickets in China, so no matter at what time, the price is the same.

Is it recommended to take a flight or train from Xi'an to Shenzhen?
Answers (1)
Answered by Johnny from USA | Nov. 07, 2018 00:44

A direct flight would take 3 hours only, did much faster than rail service. But normally, the flight ticket price is much higher than rail service. So for budget travelers, rail service would be better option. However, there is one exception. During off season, there can be very good discount offered for flights. So the price may even lower than second class seat on bullet rides. In this way, flight is surely a better option. You can check the price in details by your date and make the decision.

In fact the normal night rides takes a long time, 24 to 35 hours for the trip. For hard sleeper cabin, there are 6 beds set up in each cabin. For soft sleeper cabin, there are 4 beds. And there is cabin door for soft sleeper cabin.
