Q: Are there train cards to go from city to city?

This may seem like a long shot, but I'm coming down to Shenzhen soon and will probably be traveling around the South of China. What's the easiest way of going about it? Are there monthly train/bus/anything passes to travel?

Basically is there anything that might facilitate me traveling around in just southern china?

There is not a train card (or "pass" as we know it) in China yet. You must buy each leg you wish to travel. Tickets are only sold in a two weeks into the futrure window from today, anything further away than two weeks will not be sold.

You can buy tickets at train stations and be prepared for long lines and over one hour of wait. I use some travel agancies for my train tickets, no time wasted in line, and only charge me 5 yuan over ticket cost for their service.

Do not buy train tickets from idividuals, could be expired or fakes, and will not be honored.

If I travel by train under 3 or 4 hours in time, I use " soft seat" category. Anything over 4 hours, I use "soft sleeper, lower bed" only. Remember to bring toothbrush, toothpaste, toilet paper, snacks and drinks, and I do bring a good book to read also.

Normally, on soft sleeper cars, one end will have chinese toilet, the other end will have a western type toilet

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
