Urgent help! Z-train from Beijing to Xian

by zenboy

My wife and I are planning to leave Beijing to Xian on 10/27 in the evening (maybe around 20:00) and need to take a train. I have found a cheap ticket at this website: http://www.chinahighlights.com/china-trains/search-result.asp , which shows the available Z19 train at Beijing West Train station at 21:24 for
I will be staying at Beijing Binghai Sunny Hotel near the Chaoyangmen metro station and would like to know how far is it from this hotel to the Beijing West Train? What is the best way to get there in a short time? Is there another train that I could take from the Beijing Train Station near my hotel that goes to Xian?
They only have a 4person soft-sleeper compartment available at $62US? Do they have any for only 2 people compartment? Should I book it now or should I wait when I get there in Beijing on 10/23 and book at the hotel's frontdesk?
Need Urgent respond soon. Thanks for the help.

Plenty of trains from Beijing W to Xi'an, as that web site shows. They're all the same price. I doubt you can book through this web site or any other.

BJ West station is on Lianhuachi east road, about a kilometre inside W 3rd ring road middle. It is on Subway line 9 (under construction!) It's one of the largest and busiest railway stations in Asia, so there must be quite a few buses etc to it. Just a problem of traffic ...

Thanks for responding quickly. You are right about not able to book from this and other website. I guess taking a subway metro to Beijing West station is a really should distance, then.
Do you know a official website that I could book from? Do you suggest to wait until I get to Beijing on October 24 and book it cheaper there? How much would it cost? We would like to limit our budget for this trip.
Thanks again.

Sorry about the spelling. I meant the distance is really short to Beijing West station from my hotel, as you suggested. If Line 9 is under construction, then the only good choice is to take bus to there? I would like to book the T42 train at 19:03; how far head in time should I prepare to get there? 1 or 2 hours?

Chinese trains are a bit like planes - you need to show up early and wait in the designated waiting room.

Tickets go on sale either 7 days before or 4 days before - depends on where you are. Best to get them as soon as you can - the hotel will certainly arrange it for you, for a price (maybe 25RMB each).

I don't think there are any 2-berth compartments.

If you want the cabin to yourself book all 4 seats - they are quite cheap really. Otherwise, you will have to share. If you intend sharing make sure you book one of the bottom bunks as you will find that you cannot use the bottom bunk at all.

Travel Tips for Beijing

by okkim

We went to this restaurant in the 'hutong' area wich name I donĀ“t remember and nobody there speaked english. So we ordered something with our travel guide chinese language section and hope for the best. Well it was one the best and cheapest meals (60remimbi for to persons includind drinks)in Beijing.

Bike parking lots

by ahoerner

All over Beijing and China you will find lots of bycicles... there are so many of them that the parking lots for bikes can be found just almost everywhere.

Here's one on the Wanfujing street, downtown.

Beihai Park

by mke1963

The North Lake Park was originally the private pleasure gardens of the earlier Chinese royal dynasties.
The lake, and surrounding parks, allow you to get away from the noise and pollution of the city streets.
You can hire a boat for an hour or two and just cruise the lake, perhaps heading up the steep steps to the White Dagoba to watch the skillful kite flyers, their creations soaring high above the city rooftops.
On the southern edge is the old Round City - once an island in the lake, with its views over the private government compund of Zhongnanhai. Below the Dagoba the Temple of Eternal Peace descends down the hillside in steps, right to the bottom.
Jingxinzhai (The Study of the Tranquil Heart) is still the quietest spot in the park, a small network of gardens, pools, rockeries and shrubs - a garden withinh a garden - where lovers come for a little peace.
Nearby, further pavilions, temples and courtyards provide space for teahouses, for contemplation and even a small art gallery.
In the spring, the park is awash with colour and fragrance, especially the stately magnolia trees.
The finale for your afternoon should be to sit in the Five Dragons Pavilion and listen to the old men and women play their ancient instruments. As the music gets going, elderly couples get up to dance in the small pavilions. These performances are better than any you will pay to see.
The best time to visit was during SARS, when the crowds stayed at home, hiding under their beds, but Beihai Park is a pleasure at any time of the year.

Winter Jackets

by littleman about Friendship Store

My best buy in China was a waterproof winter jacket made of 90% duck down.It was a saving of hundreds of dollars compared to buying something similiar in australia.Although you must be carefull of the zippers and buttons which might not be of the best quality.

Getting to the Great Wall

by John195123

There are many ways to get to the Great Wall. One of the easiest and cheapest in by public bus (I'll get the number soon!) (619?). You pick up the bus at a specific location in Beijing, but you can also get on farther north along the road to Badaling. Anyway, it's a great way to go, and will drop you off at the entrance.

There are tours offered by many hotels, but those are best for limiting options. Sure, everything's taken care of, but you may not have the time you want or need.

You can also catch a tourist bus from the southwest corner of Tienanmen Square, across the street to the west of the square.

More soon!
