Yan'an, Shaanxi

Transport:  Xi'an Train Station > Yan'an Train Station > Xi'an Train Station (hard seat, aircond - CNY50.50 one way) - After the 1st week of Labor Day (May 1), buying train tickets were less stressful but ideally buy your tickets one day in advance in order to secure a seat. You have to present your passport for a ticket purchase. We prefer the morning trains ie around 8-9 am so that we would arrive the destinations after the mid-day or in the afternoon. Buying a sleeper bed at short notice is a major challenge as most sleeper beds are sold out a week earlier. However, Xian has a High Speed train station (Xi'anBei) so for long distance travel (8-9 hrs), you could opt for a high speed train, the ticket price is probably three times higher than taking the normal trains !
