Lanzhou Train Ticket Office

The city of Lanzhou, capital of Gansu Province, is a famous city on the ancient Silk Road, situated in what came to be known as the Gansu Corridor in China's northwest, on the border with what the emperor called his "Western Regions". Gansu Province was the last lush – and perhaps civilized, at least as regards creature comforts – part of China before one traversed the Yumen Pass (aka the Jade Gate), beyond which lay arid desert: the Gobi to the north and the Taklimakan "straight ahead", i.e., due west.

Lanzhou boasts the largest railway junction in this part of China, namely, the Lanzhou Railway Station, with over over 60 departures to major Chinese cities daily, including to Beijing, Changsha, Chengdu, Jinan, Nanjing, Shanghai and Qingdao, as well as to Xi’an (ancient Chang'an, home, as indicated, to the Terracotta Warriors) to the southeast, and to Urumqi to the northwest, on the northern rim of the Taklimakan Desert, where the desert meets the entrance to the ancient Urumchi Corridor that follows an alternative Silk Road route that skirted northward around the Tian Shan Mountains and on eastward to Samarkand in Uzbekistan, before linking up again with the southern Silk Road route.

Lanzhou Railway Station is located on the southern edge of the city center. Visitors can of course purchase train tickets at the railway station as well as at many railway ticket offices elsewhere round about the city and in the nearby upland, with the greatest chances of finding an alternative railway ticket office in the following districts: Qilicun, Tunguan and Xigu. There is currently no ticket delivery available in any of these ticket offices, but there is probably not that much demand for it either, given that one can normally purchase one's train tickets at Lanzhou Railway Station with minimal wait times.
