Always, provided there are seats available!! In China this is not a given. Trains are often crowded. You may have to wait a few hours. At a busy time you may have to wait a few days.

I guess it depends on how you define a bullet train. This article describes a service between Chengdu and Chongqing on the “He Xie” (和谐) bullet train:

Possible to get a seat for that day, but the wanted next train may not not always available. Better to book one day ahead.

The train is a kind of bullet train for lower speed, not the model for 300 KM/hr.
