Topic From: Beijing to Shanghai/Shanghai to Beijing Bullet Train
Hello, I have a question: are there 2 towns or cities called SUZHOU in China? When we look at the high speed train route between Shanghai and Beijing, we can see that the train goes through 2 places called SUZHOU: one near Shanghai and the other one is near Nanjing?
Asked by Francine on Dec. 28, 2011
Yes, Sir, the two stops are Suzhou and Nanjing City. Both are popular tourist destinations. You could learn more about them via these links.
Also, as i know, to issue the train tickets from Jan. 1, passenger needs book with the copy of passport, and with Chinese New Year (Jan. 24) coming, the train tickets sale between Jan. 15- Feb. 5 will get very tight, your earliest confirmation is really necessary.
