We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Railway Station

Originally built in 1934, Xian Railway Station is now an important hub connecting the Northwest and Southwest China. There are many daily trains in Xian connecting Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Lanzhou, Xining, Urumqi, Lhasa and more. Traveling Xian by train is much sought after by many tourists in a safe and money saving way.

Put into operation on Jan 11, 2011, Xian's new railway station ( Xian's second railway station) - Xian North Railway Station is designed for all the high speed trains (G trains) and D trains (CRH) leaving and coming in Xian.

If you take a high speed train from Xian to Luoyang (Zhengzhou) or Mt.Huashan, you now should go to Xian North Railway Station.

Xian Railway Station is located just outside the northeast corner of Xian City Wall. The main road "Jiefang Road" ends at Xian Train Station at its north tip and connects the Dong Dajie (East Street) at its south tip.

The ticketing office (except selling Bullet Train Tickets) is to the right of the main entrance if you face the train station. You are requested to buy train tickets 7-10 days in advance to secure the hard or soft sleeper tickets. Buying train tickets is a headache, even for the locals in China. Train tickets are in high demand. We suggest you pay a little more to turn to a local travel agency or a ticket office in your hotel to reserve your train tickets saving your time and hassle involved.
If you are going to purchase a bullet train ticket, then you will go to a different ticket office, just to the left side of the main entrance of the station. The railway in China develops very fast with many big cities having the bullet trains like Beijing, Tianjin, Harbin, Shanghai, Wuhan, Chengdu and Guangzhou. More and more cities will join the team making China the most develped bullet train country.
