Trains In China. Chinese trains are the most efficient way of traveling long distances but they book up very very early especially at peak times like summer time or the Chinese New Year. If you really want to experience a train journey then better make sure you book early or you might be not come back to where you were. According to Travel Nation, the best train seats to take when taking long or overnight train rides are the hard sleepers which are the best. Hard seats are not recommended it will just bust out your back.
Pack Light. Pack light clothes with lots of layers. In China you can go from somewhere very cold like the Great Wall of China to somewhere and all of the sudden very humid like in Yangshuo so its better to be prepared all the time for your own comfort.
Learn The Language. Learn a bit of Mandarin, the most widely spoken language in the country. Its very useful since most Chinese people do not understand English, they may but it will be difficult for both of you when exchanging conversations. According to Rough Guides, the best thing is to download a Chinese dictionary application to make it easier for you on the go.
