"Overnight train Beijing to Xian" China Transportation Tip by Chrissy50

China Transportation: 268 reviews and 211 photos

I have taken the overnight train from Beijing to Xian and did not book till I arrived in Beijing so missed out on a Delux soft sleeper, we shared a 4 berth Soft Sleeper with 2 young men, we had lower berths and everything was fine. However try to book in advance and my advise to you would be if money permits is to book both berths that way you will have it to yourself and don't have to worry if you want to keep the light on reading etc. If we had thought we would have booked the other 2 beds. Hind sight is wonderful.
