First leg of the trip to Beijing by train.
And yes, you have to start by visiting the famous capital and with dimensions of China, this is not a trivial matter:]
So I decided to take the train to make us Shanghai to Beijing. Slightly cheaper than aircraft, especially in the sense Shanghai-Beijing railway in China is also an experience in itself.
It had already begun when purchasing tickets.
After the galleys No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, so we managed last February 6 at the counter to buy Minhang our return tickets in two berths.
In fact, as we already had to take place in soft sleeper, I wanted to take back to experience the hard sleeper, which is said that comfort is identical to their cousins soft intimacy less (compartments 6 and not shared 4, and no door) and are significantly less expensive.
However, it made me realize that it was impossible for me to get to this point such places. I already felt happy to have 2 places back in the Beijing-Shanghai sense when we know that in general you can not buy train tickets departing in the city where you are, I do not insist not …
A small remark nevertheless, Beijing-Shanghai cost us 50 RMB more per ticket than Shanghai and Beijing for the same category of comfort and train, issue date, meaning? I did not explain it yet …
Anyway, that’s it, we’re ready.
