Notes for Taking Train in China

1. Booking an original train is easier than booking a passing-by train. Train ticket can be booked 20 days in advance at most. TCT suggests you to book the train ticket as early as you can, in case of the availability of the ticket.

2. Generally, the seats on the train in China have tow types including soft seat and hard seat. Also, 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.
3. In China, taking a train is a comparative cheaper way to cut down the travel cost. While correspondingly, the comfortable level is lower than by air.
Luggage: you need to take the luggages by yourself and keep an eye of them on transporting time, no luggage-checking service on the train
Carriage: it may be crowded when in the domestic travel seasons as well as summer holidays.

Tips for Travel to Huanggshan and Shanghai

Tips for Travel to Huanggshan
It is suitable for you to visit to Huangshan all year around. There is rarely snow in March and the weather warms quickly with an average temperature of 14ºC. A sweater and a light coat are generally enough, though there may be hot days when you only need summer clothes such as a T-shirt. Flowers begin to bloom at the end of March.
April weather is generally warm and occasionally very warm. A shirt with a light coat is enough for the beginning of the month, but as it grows very warm at the end of April you may be able to dispense with the jacket.
May: It is hot. Summer clothes are recommended with an extra layer for evenings.

Shanghai also received the name of 'Exhibition of the World Architecture'. The metropolis has a variety of buildings along with various architectural designs along the Bund and elsewhere of the area. The Financial and Trade Building, the International Convention Center and the Oriental Pearl Television Tower in Pudong Area, flanked by the spectacular Nanpu and Yangpu Bridges, which are linked with the city’s elevated inner beltway, and the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theater on People Square.
