The journey takes around 12 hours and is on the whole fairly comfortable. 2 pillows and a duvet are provided per person and there are 4 bunks, 2 up, 2 down in each carriage. There are some very homely touches and when the trains were first commissioned, I am sure they were considered the …

Ancient Walls and wonderful buildings

A travel blog entry by veromarcos


We had a pleasant train trip here, with very helpful train staff. We changed trains in Tayuan, all very smoothly.

Located roughly halfway between Beijing and Xi'an, it's one of best preserved ancient cities in China with striking architecture and small carless streets of cobblestone. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, the city …

Wonderful old ancient City of Pingyao

A travel blog entry by travursel


Another overnight train ride to Pingyao; this time I was able to get a hard sleeper only. The beds are arranged in 2x3 bunks, and I got the center bunk.

    This quiet little hideaway offers an ancient setting with large "kung" beds and excellent food. The staff are incredible and help with everything from menus to getting a very difficult train ticket. The walled patio is a great private place to enjoy a meal outdoors on a sunny day!
