train ticket to beijing

by catleachua

Hi! we will be in shanghai march 16 and were planning to go to beijing on the 19 via z train, and will buy ticket as soon as we arrive shanghai. Ive read an article that i have to book atleast 7 days ahead or there will be no available train ticket to beijing . And also will be returning to shanghai from beijing on march 22 via z train too if possible. Is it true that there might be a possibility that train tickets wont be available. Your advise will be highly appreciated!!

I regularly help friends and other travellers with train ticket errands, so let me know if you need help. Always good to buy in advance (train tickets go on sale 10 days before departure date) especially if you're travelling in a group and would prefer to be together as much as possible.

Re: train ticket to beijing

I think basically the opposite is true - it is not usually possible to book any train more than four days in advance. Yes, the trains are busy, but there are a lot of them. Your hotel can get a ticket for you.

They are comfortable enough, as I think all accommodation is in soft sleeper. Some of the trains include dinner in the price.

Re: train ticket to beijing

by johnmperry

Certainly in Guangxi and Guangdong you can't buy that far in advance. In addition you can't normally buy the return journey either.

Re: train ticket to beijing

Not that case here in Shanghai. For goodness sakes I've been here for the past 4+ years. Are you?

Re: train ticket to beijing

by enzhu

I remember Z train is different from other trains.
Z train is 10 days in advance but other trains are only 4 days.
The booking period also changes during Chinese new year, so it's rather confusing.

Re: train ticket to beijing

by ellyse

Again, no, not like that in Shanghai. Most of the time it's 10 days, for any trains. Z and D trains used to be 20 days, but now they're also only 10 days.

Re: train ticket to beijing

thanks for your advise guys!!! appreciate it so much. By the way ellyse, if its not too much, can you help me get a z train ticket? Please tell me what to do, thanks! Its for two, me and my husband.

Re: train ticket to beijing

by catleachua

one more thing,if z train ticket to beijing wont be available , is it possible to get plane ticket as soon as i arrive shanghai (MARCH 16), we are budget travellers so i want to know if plane ticket will cost me too much. Some says plane ticket to beijing sometimes are even cheaper than train tickets ( because of discounts) . Is it true?( I plan to go to beijing on the 19)

Re: train ticket to beijing

by ellyse

I've replied to your VTMail.
No, plane tickets are never cheaper than the overnight trains. Especially when you take into consideration the extra time and money spent travelling between downtown and airports (airports are generally about 100-150 RMB taxi ride from the downtown areas) as well as accommodation costs for the extra (which otherwise would've been spent on the train).

Re: train ticket to beijing

by dknchowdhury

hi ellyse:

Is there someone reliable you know in
Shanghai who can book 2 first class soft seat tickets for me
on the D32 train for a specific date (May 6) which falls during a holiday week.
I know which hotel I am staying in Shanghai but they can't help and I won't be there soon enough (just 3 days) to handle the ticketing myself.
Will payment by credit card be acceptable or be used as a guarantee with cash payment on delivery. appreciate your help.

Re: train ticket to beijing

by ellyse

I'll VTMail you.

Re: train ticket to beijing

by johnmperry

... you VTmail them but you don't VTmail me!

:-(

I wasn't getting at you, I was just explaining the situation here in the South. I'm sure you know a lot better than me how things are in Shanghai.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

The “Face Off” the clash of...

by ricosun

The “Face Off” the clash of generation of the old verus the New. The co-existence of past, present and future of the Shanghai.

On the original shanghai side, situates the 19th colonial control old shanghai bound, filled with classical British architectures, an immediate sense of the glorious past. The Pu Dong side is the modern Shanghai, which spawned up almost over night. It includes much future-realistic architecture such as “Don Fang Tower” and World’s 3rd highest building “Jin Mao Tower”. The old and new are positioned face to face in a show down of history and architecture brilliance. This scenery is best experienced at night, as the climatically point after a walk on something road.

Industrial Supplies Shopping

by gaolei about Bejing East (Dong) Road

Working on a project in Shanghai and need a part for your machine? Look on Beijing Road East (Beijing Dong Lu). There are shops selling everything from circuit breakers to gearmotors and valves. Chances are you can find it here, or they will look for you.

While you are here go into the Shanghai Electronics Market for a mind-blowing assortment of electronic components. Industrial controls, valves, screws, metal, mechanical components and much more. A 3 phase breaker that sells for $67 in the US is about $6.00 here on Beijing road.

mouthwatering Xiao Lung Bao

by angelochka about Nanxiang Xiaolong Mantou Dian

The magnificent Yuyuan Gardens

by thescene

The Yuyuan garden and bazaar is an area in Shanghai which showcases buildings that were prevalent during the Ming Dynasty. It also houses a large Chinese styled garden complete with pagodas, lotus flowers and ponds On the way to the complex you can visit their bazaar where you can buy various Chinese arts and crafts to take home. If you get tired and get hungry the place also has a few restaurants where you can get anything from Chinese food to burgers. Come early as this place is normally filled with tourists.

Shanghai Part One

by mcgruff75044

"!7,000,000 people, but who's counting?"

Shanghai is one of the worlds largest cities and the major economic hub in mainland China. All China is divided into provinces but Shanghai is a special municipality consisting of a number of Districts. Although it is divided into several districts, the best known for first timers like myself are Puxi and Pudong. Pu = River, Xi = West, Dong = East.

The city has a major influences from most European Countries during the time China granted them ( or they just took ) areas of access, so the architecture is very rich and has a very unique feel to it.

Here is a picture from The Bund in Puxi of the TV tower in Pudong, Shanghai's tallest structure and possibly the largest TV tower in the world. You can go inside it and there is a restaraunt to eat in in the larger lower ball there.

Oh yes, the Chinese beer was brought over by the Germans when they had influence in China, so you will find the beer is some of the best in the world.

"Pearls, Jade and Jewelry with an Asian Flare"

Great little market in Poxi where the Bund and French concession. It was packed and pleasant and had somw very interesting shops, from bronze to jade to jewelry and so on. Great craftsmanship.

The great thing still about China is it is not full of "Big Box" stores, just mostly a number of small, unique mom and pop type stores. Don't expect to find anything quite the same, A ton of seamtresses and tailors, food markets, outdoor stalls, bootleg dvd's and cd's and world class grifters.

This is a lot of fun!

"A view of the Skyline form Puxi"

This is the "new" Old City Park. Recently built as a restoration of the - you guessed it - old city park. You can see the skyline in the background. Twenty years ago the government would have been doing the building, but nowadays it is all being financed by private capital.

These folks are all little capitalists, they may just not know it yet! The city is full of tall buildings and large construtions sights almost everywhere you look.

There is also a huge amount of light and very heavy industry as you will see when you cross a major river. The boat traffic is unbelievable. The mass transit system is very workable and puts most meropolitan areas to shame, complete with one (soon to be two) operational MagLev trains carrying passengers on a regular basis. Top speed around 250 MPH. Subways, buses and trains, even outside the city, are inexpensive.

If you live in Los Angeles forget about it. These guys have your rear end whipped.
