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.

    It is becoming increasingly unlikely that we will be able to travel to Mongolia or China on the dates we have booked. I enquiry to your cancellation policy and we are sorry we have to cancel our train tickets and flight tickets. Luckily, you cancelled the tickets and made a refund to us. We are not be going to China this time and we hope to go soonest once this pandemic has finally ended. Please remember us and we will book tickets with you again.

    We are satisfied with your service. But we still have a suggestion that you could list the checking gate number in the confirmation email. The railway station is too big to find the correct checking gate for foreign passengers. Hope for an improvement in the future.

    My friends recommend the website Travel China Guide. He told me it is very easy to book the tickets through this website and the customer service of this agency is very excellent. Then I decides to book the tickets through this site. It is very convenient for foreigners. I just submit the online booking and collect the paper tickets at train station with the confirmation they sent me. It is really convenient.

    Usually, we took the First Class Seats for our travel. One day, we booked the Business Class Seat tickets instead. The free snacks and coffee are offered. While, for the second time, to our surprise, no food at all. We asked the train staff and was told that no such service on that train. Anyway, we feel great in Business Class Cabin.

    Upon our arrival, we got a big envelope with all of our train tickets booked with you guys from hotel reception. Inside, you put them into a white envelope. It is so considerate. You are very nice.

    Our train tickets arrived in good shape. We fetched the envelope from the hotel upon arrival. Thank you again for your excellent service and the refund of the unused train tickets. Hopefully, my friend from Berlin will recover soon and we will be able to come to China together next spring.

    I have to say a big thank you to your team. Everything went very well. Every time I called, the lady is polite and helpful. For questions about tickets booking, you guys are so professional. It’s a pity that I didn’t get a window seat. While, the girl next to me is so nice and she exchanged the seat with me. I will use your service for my further trips.
