October 1 to 7 is the Chinese national holiday. In 2013, there were 428 million people go travelling during the national holiday, most of the travelers chose railway for transportation. It can be expected that there will also be an explosive demand for railway traffic this year. China Highlights recommends that travelers buy train tickets at least 20 days in advance, or as early as possible. For those who self-collect tickets at stations, China Highlights recommends you arrive at the station early, as there may be long queues at collection points.
