A huge number of trains queuing up for you each day. Nearly 200 trains. Beijing is just 1 hr to Shijiangzhuang by those titled with G.

As long as you are a bit flexible on your timing then you are fine.

If a wanted time is needed, always better to secure it one day ahead.

On your way? You mean you will travel this route in the next few days? If so then it changes everything. Now it is the Chinese new year travel madness. Probably all tickets are sold already.

no, do not worry, we will travel in april. Is easter going to be very busy? But i guess we will not travel before mid april. I hope it will be fine than, maybe a little spring in the air and not so busy roads.

Thank you for your concern.

Most Chinese have no idea about Easter. Everything goes as normal around that day.
