Yes, they open as normal during holidays. And I suppose there will be even more people at that time.

We will be travel from Suzhou to Xi'an soon and planning to use a sleeper train.
I am wondering how I can make sure our group of 3 will be in the same compartment. Is the beds given at the time of booking or at the time we exchange paper tickets? Also, it would be even better if you can buy one more ticket to have a whole compartment. Please kindly reply, thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The beds are assigned by Railway Company at the time of ticket booking. You can leave us this bed request in our booking form as a remark. We will be able to notice it and do our best. Usually this is no problem if there are still suitable cabin available.

If you can offer a 4th passengers information we can buy 4 tickets for you, however, it cannot be 100% guaranteed that you will be able to hold the cabin of your own all the time. Occasionally, the empty bed may sold to other passengers again by train staff. Hope for your advanced notice of this possibility.

If I book a ticket from Xi'an to Shanghai, can I get off in Suzhou?
After 2 days in Suzhou, can I still use this ticket to change to other trains to Shanghai? Or I need to buy a different ticket? Thank you.

Answered by Anthony from USA | Feb. 11, 2019 18:39

It is no problem to get off in advance if the one you booked will stop at Suzhou, but the same ticket cannot be used again. The price difference is not refundable either. You can only buy a new ticket for the trip to Shanghai.
Asked by Mahoney | Nov. 06, 2018 00:10Reply
Is there any food for sale on Z88 from Xi'an to Suzhou? I am vegetarian.
If not, can I take meal by myself? Can drinks go through the security check?
Answers (1)
Answered by Abel | Nov. 06, 2018 02:57

See from its travel time, there may be no formal meals for sale. Some snacks, drinks and fruits may possible to get. So it is better to take some food of your own. Most Chinese people do it as well. Drinks can go through the security check.
