Travel between Xian and Chengdu

Is there an overnight train from Xian to Chengdu and if so what time does it leave Xian and how long does it take. Is this a better option to flying.

Xi-'an to Chengdu train schedule

chinatravelguide.com/ctgwiki/…

Duration is 10-12 hous on the train

For flight, based on which month you plan to book. The full price of the ticket is CNY 630, while in some low season, you can get even 70% - 80% discount. You can check about the price on ctrip.com. Flying duration is around 1.5 hours.

Looked at ctrip and it said "This flight route is not yet bookable online or is unavailable on your selected dates" is this because I am trying to book to far in advance i.e. September. When would I be able to book for September.

Hello :

I think that that reason you book it very early in advance , you may book it when the time get closer a little bit.

Enjoy you stay in
