Train Travel Tips

For such a long train journey, it might be helpful to have some tips before traveling on the trains. Spend a minute to read our tips below:

1. Food: The food provided on the trains is limited, especially on a long journey, and only Chinese-style food is offered. Therefore, you'd better prepare some food yourself before boarding.

2. Water: Boiled drinking water is provided for free on the trains but it might not taste very nice. Bottled water is also provided but the price is much higher on the trains than in the shops. It is recommended to purchase a few bottles of water before boarding.

3. Toilet paper: There might be toilet paper available on the trains but always take your own with you in case it runs out.

4. Earphones: The cars may be noisy as people talk or laugh loudly and you’ll probably hear children crying too. You can take earphones with you to reduce the noise level.

5. Safety: Keep your valuables with you no matter whether you are awake or sleeping and no matter where you go on the train.

6. Smoking: Smoking is allowed on normal-speed trains but it is forbidden on high-speed trains.
