Buying Xi'an to Beijing train tickets 2 days in advance

by geminimoai

I will be in Xi'an next month. Will I be able to get a train ticket from Xi'an to Beijing 2 days in advance?

Do the clerks at the station speak English?

Thanks!

Yes, I booked five soft sleeper tickets to Beijing 2 days in advance. Shouldn't be too difficult to communicate with tickets sales. Just mentioned Beijing and show by hand number of tickets and date/time of travel.

You can read more about the trains from Xi'an to Beijing from my travel page.

English is being spoken a bit more in China (more by the young people) but you should have no trouble explaining what you want. You can use a combination of hand signals and I find that even drawing a picture can help. I found the Chinese to be very friendly and patient with foreigners.

You should find your hotel will do the booking for you, that is what I did only the opposite way, Beijing to X'ian, soft sleeper, it was about 2 or 3 days before we left, my hotel did not charge for this service, some possibly might but it was very easy and hassal free. When we got to X'ian we then got the hotel there to book our flight to Shanghai, again no problems.

If you have a problem finding an English speaker then ask a concierge in a large hotel to help (even if you are not staying there). They will write it down for you.

Hi
I dont think the station clerks speak english but i'm pretty sure they will understand you. Why dont you book an air ticket to beijing instead? If you book the air ticket in advance(one month), the price is around 300 cny. The train ticket will cost you around 200-300cny, but it will take at least 12hours of your time. Try call a travel agency in China.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Prices in general

by stevemt

Once you have got settled, take a walk from your hotel and find the nearest hole in the wall local type shop.

You will be able to buy beer, water, general necessities far cheaper here than anywhere else.

Certainly while the mini bar prices for beer are reasonable according to overseas prices, getting your beer here and taking it back to your hotel room will save you a heap.

1+1

by omar_samra about 1+1

If you are used to the European club scene or any other trendy clubbing around the world, then this will be really amusing. The music is mostly cheesy and odd western music along with Chinese dance but for some reason i loved it! They will stick a slow dong inbetween the dancey stuff to remind us all of our high school days! A downside (or a funny side) is a black singer miming some back street boys tunes who seems to be very popular with the crowd. He does pull some stunts like putting a flaming torch inside his pants, ouch!! The Go Go Dancers are stunning!More Nightlife Anything goes (i think).

Terracotta Warriors

by SallyM

Well, what can I say about the Terracotta Army? It is quite unlike anything else. Until you actually see it, it is impossible to grasp the scale of the whole thing, and the attention to detail. Pit one, the largest, is like a vast aircraft hangar (though more attractive from the outside). The other pits are smaller, and some warriors have been placed in glass cases so it is possible to get a closer look (if you can push through the crowds).

There is also a museum which contains two chariots, as well as a number of 'gifts presented to the museum' by visiting dignitaries.

Photography is allowed inside.

The exit to the site is via what can only be described as a massive shopping mall. I consider it a huge achievement to have escaped without purchasing anything more than a fridge magnet.

Bell Tower

by SallyM

The Bell Tower was originally built in 1384, but later moved to its present location.

There is a large bell, which visitors are allowed to ring. Inside are regular musical performances (we just missed a performance, though there were two musicians playing the same traditional instruments we had seen in the Shaanxi Museum and at the Tang Dynasty show – one of them was playing an instrument that resembled birdsong, the other, in direct competition, was playing something that sounded incredibly like Auld Lang Syne).

Carved panels on the exterior show scenes from history.

The Tower gives good views over the city.

It is possible to buy a combined ticket with the nearby Drum Tower.

THE GENERAL

by shivan

This is the boss, only few of them have been found at the moment.

Details here are at their best. An incredible work, if compared with the number of the statues found here. Maybe thousands people for years worked here.
