"Train Tickets- The Smart Way" Chengdu Transportation Tip by John195123
Chengdu Transportation: 34 reviews and 30 photos
If you want to get a train ticket, say a soft sleeper to Xi'An, or any of the destination accessible from Chengdu, you could go to the train station, hang around long lines and questionable people, and spend a generally long time for a simple ticket. There's nothing, of course, wrong with that method, but there are easier ways. At the north (?) end of People's Park is a small building built into the bamboo wall along Citang Street. It's a fast, easy way to get tickets.
A soft sleeper to Xi'An at the time of writing (Feb. 2008) cost over 500 RMB for two people, for a top and bottom bunk. The trains were clean, the beds comfortable enough. Smoking isn't allowed in the soft sleeper rooms. The trip took about 16 hours.
