Questions & Answers on China Train
  • Following up on a question previously asked, I am traveling on an overnight train with a 7 year old child. Is it really not possible to book our family together? Could her ticket be free if she shares a bed with me? If not, is there a discount on this kind of train for children? If so, how do I select the discounted ticket?

  • Because I can't decide when is it suitable to arrive in Beijing since my flight departs 2.55am in the morning, so I have to options, either to arrive 6.30 pm (9 hours before my flight) or arrive 10.30 (4.30 hours before my flight)? So I would prefer the second option, but I'm worried that at night time there are no express trains or shuttles to T2..

  • I have been told that even if I book all our tickets together my family and i may not get the same cabin (i.e. all four soft sleepers). How can I make sure we can all be together and not have to share with people we don't know. My son is only 12 and I will not let him share with strangers. We are from Australia.
