Navigating Xian North Train Station

My husband and I will be traveling from Xian to Beijing in mid April. We'd like to take a G train. I'm wondering if the Xian North Station is hard to navigate. Are platforms, etc. marked in English?

I have not been to this train station but they are all the same. There will be a giant screen showing all the train numbers, departures time and platform numbers. It is pretty easy to figure out the platform number.

Hello:

The north station of xian is constructed by the international standard, expecially the ternimal of the station just like the airport with English sign to indicate you which gate you will board your train. No worry about it.

Enjoy you stay in

Very easy. Modern, as stated above, like an airport. One of the cleanest, shiniest things in Xi'an, also connected to the metro.

Everything should be well nevigated in specialized bullet train station in China like Xian North. You will feel like you are in a small airport.

I would recommend you pay one of the porters to carry your luggage - as there is a bit of walking and stairs.

Easy to work out where you need to be!

Is this the same station where the K train from Biejing West arrives? And is it connected to the city by metro? I am staying within the city walls? Thanks.

K train? No. That would arrive at the main station downtown which is not connected to the metro. Why on earth would you take a K train to Xi'an?
