Which seat or sleeper class is better?                                             

1. For the high speed train on this route, the highest level of seat is first class. There are four seats in a row in first class and five seats in a row in second class.

As the train ride is about 7-10 hours, it is more comfortable to take first class seat which has larger space, partially reclining, and are equipped with small pillow and footrest.

2. For the normal speed train on this route, the highest level seat is soft sleeper. There are 4 berths in a soft sleeper compartment, with two on each side, each supplied with pillow, sheet and an individual reading light.

The berths are wider and more comfortable than hard sleepers. Each soft sleeper compartment has a door, which can be closed. 

Also as the train ride is more than 20 hours, it is highly recommended to take the soft sleeper if you travel by the normal speed train.

In case the soft sleeper sold out, the hard sleeper is considerable, but not the hard seat which is only ok if short distance.
