Most probably the train tickets have been sold out since the Tomb-sweeping Day falls on April 5. While these two cities are famous tourist cities and most Chinese prefer traveling during the holiday.

I would like to know if the following itinerary is practically possible by train and how I'd get the train tickets (in time):

dec.28 Beijing -> Pingyao (overnight)
dec.30 Pingyao -> Xi'an (departure in early morning or even midnight)
jan.1 Xi'an -> Chengdu (departure in early morning/afternoon)

Thanks a lot!

hi,except the trains between Xi'an and Pingyao, other two train tickets are easily get comparatively. I suggest you take car to Taiyuan before you reach Xi'an, which are the departure city of the trains.

For the train tickets, you may try to reserve them from the hotels in you live during your traveling.
