Collecting Train Tickets

The Forbidden City
One of the first things you should do before setting out is to check which train station you should be heading to. As in China’s main cities, there are numerous train stations. For example in Beijing there are 5 train stations, Beijing, Beijing West, Beijing East, Beijing North and Beijing South. Therefore, you need to double check your ticket so you know which train station you should be going to.

Best Time to Collect Tickets

When picking up tickets we suggest that you either leave at least a few hours prior to the train departure or as soon as possible. There often queues that build up for ticket collection so to save yourself from any delays. We suggest that if you plan on collecting the tickets on the day you travel you at least leave 3 hours for the train station before the train departure time.
