"Hard sleeper train. I loved..." Lanzhou Transportation Tip by bokononist

Lanzhou Transportation: 7 reviews and 7 photos

Hard sleeper train. I loved taking trains in China and this was one of the best rides - waking up to see the sun rise over the yellow river in Gansu, one of the poorest regions of China.
The train is just a unique experience and a must for really getting to know China. Beware the bathrooms. Oh and take your shoes off before you sit in bed lest you anger the workers.
