Notes for Booking Train Tickets
1. Booking an original train is easier than booking a passing-by train. You can book a train ticket 10 days in advance at most. Above train schedule and fares are just for your reference, while they may change over time, you need to check them again.

2. Generally, the seats on the train in China have tow types including soft seat and hard seat. Also, there are tow kinds of sleeper seats on China's trains which are hard sleeper seat and soft sleeper seat. Hard sleeper seats are divided into upper hard sleeper, middle hard sleeper and lower hard sleeper (lower hard sleeper is the best); while soft sleeper seats are divided into upper soft sleeper and lower soft sleeper (lower soft sleeper is better).

3. The trains may not depart in every day, and the depart time and ticket fare are not fixed, you need you check when you plan for your journey.
