Note: Although there are more departures for Guilin West, it is not recommended to get off there, as Yangshuo Railway Station is located far from downtown area and the public transportation is not convenient. D8232 stops at both Guilin Station and Guilin North Station. If you are going to the city area, get off at Guilin Station for it is closer to city center. If you are going to transfer to other trains, especially high speed ones, get off at Guilin North Station, because most bullet trains are operated there.

    The booking system was fairly easy to use. We did have an issue with our train being cancelled so we had to purchase another ticket but apart from that everything was excellent. It was easy to pick the tickets up, the train was clean & fairly comfy. Staff were excellent

    Excellent service with very good communication, which kept us up to speed on how our purchase was progressing. The tickets arrived at the hotel the day after our arrival in China with no fuss. I would recommend this company to anyone wishing to buy train tickets prior to visiting China, as made the whole experience so much easier particularly as we speak no Chinese.

    Everything worked out fine. Also the travelling by train was very convenient.

    I had a great trip. For me, the only difficulty was paying using my Chinese Bank card since I dont read or write in Chinese. When I booked the ticket I went to the local China Bank and transferred the money by showing the staff the instructions. I think that may be more of a bankin issue than your company though since I have the same issue paying my rent - I must input Chinese names. I will use your service in the future.

    Quick, efficient service. They got me the tickets and had them sent to my hotel in a different city by express service that got them there before I arrived. Smooth and easy.

    We very much enjoyed taking the train in China. It was a very effective way to travel and much more pleasant than flying.

    I don't have too much to say beyond thank you so much for sorting out all of our tickets. You guys were extremely helpful. It made travelling around china so much easier!! I'd definitely recommend it to any future travellers.

    Booking and tickets delivery: very good and efficient
    Waiting room, check in and boarding procedure: need improvement- for the high price of business class ticket, there is nothing else better except for the seat. No drinks/snacks were served during the journey. There was no special room for waiting, check in and boarding the train.
    Conclusion:with the lack of service and facilities, it should not be categorized as business class.
