TCT suggests travellers to book train ticket as early as you can, in case of the availability of the ticket. There are four way for guests to buy train ticket in China: buy ticket at the Railway Station, online, by telephone or through travel agencies. More useful information you can find at page How to Book China Train Tickets.

2. Generally, the seats on the ordinary train in China have tow types including soft seat and hard seat. Train sleepers are classified into two types: soft sleeper and hard sleeper. Hard sleeper has three sub-categories: upper hard sleeper, middle hard sleeper and lower hard sleeper; Soft sleeper has two sub-categories: upper soft sleeper and lower soft sleeper (better). If you take an over-night train or long distance train, you would better buy a ticket for soft sleeper to make your trip more comfortable.
