You should select Xining Train Station as your destination if you travel in train, train tickets are usually available 2 months in advance, but we strongly suggest you to check the website below and buy it as soon as possible when it’s available, because hard and soft sleepers are limited, and we believe you wouldn’t want to sit or stand for 20 hours on the train. Hard sleeper is 6-bed without door to the corridor, soft sleeper is 4-bed with sliding door. Trains are 60% cheaper than flights, train stations is always crowded, once you bought the ticket online, you need to take your passport to the ticket selling windows to get the paper ticket before you get on the train, it is wiser to go there at least 3 hours in advance. We will be in Xining train station to pick you up!
