I used China Highlights to help me book train tickets from Hong Kong to Hanoi. At first I wanted to do it myself, but decided that having help would make it easier. I'm so thankful I chose China Highlights—their service was so fast and professional. I worked directly with Travel Advisor Jason Li, who helped me find the best route to match my timing and budget. He even took steps to ensure that the route was as convenient as possible—meaning he helped me pick tickets that required fewer train station transfers.

When it came time to return to Hong Kong, the coronavirus had caused all trains from Mainland China to HK to be stopped. With just one simple email to Jason, I was able to get a full refund on 2/3 of my trip, with the remaining ticket being one I need to get refunded on my own (since I had received the physical ticket in advance).

Overall, I am incredibly pleased with China Highlights services and look forward to using them in the future when things calm down!

I used China highlights to book high speed trains to and from Yantai, Shandong. My plans had an unexpected change, and I was able to contact Vivi via WeChat and have my tickets cancelled and reissued. Vivi also helped me provide options for getting to my destination. I highly recommend Vivi and China Highlights for booking trains especially if you don't have a Citizenship card within China.

I needed to book a train ticket from Beijing to Harbin, and did so through China Highlights. China Railways bookings only open one month before travel, but I was able to request the ticket several weeks before this and China Highlights booked it for me as soon as bookings opened, taking the worry out of the process. I got exactly what I wanted with friendly and efficient service and convenient payment channels. Will definitely use again.

I used China Highlights to book a highspeed strain from Shanghai to Beijing. The tickets came with extensive instructions, helpful chinese phrases and a helpul associate that gave great advice on what to do with all of my luggage.

Unfortunately, a typhoon meant that my train was cancelled, but I rapidly got a full refund and will be using China Highlights to rebook the trip

I booked a train ticket from Xi'an to Zhengzhou and Zhengzhou to Shanghai. The Company arranged for the tickets to be sent to my hotel in Xi'an. They accommodated a change in booking and managed to get me window seats for both journeys.

I was very pleased with how smoothly they performed their roles and I was very happy with the outcome.

I bought all my train tickets in advance with them, they were really nice and did their best to get me all the tickets I needed.
At the first train station I gave the reservation number they gave me and got the tickets for all pieces of my journey.
If you are traveling to China, I strongly advise you to buy the train tickets with them.

We ordered speed train tickets and they immediately responded and explained how everything would funktion. When the Corona crisis started in China they proactively contacted us and asked if we wanted our money back, which we wanted to postpone as we hoped still go to in March/April 2020. When this was clear not to happen I contacted them again and I got a full refund within 24 hours. I am really impressed with the service and will 100% use them again, when going to China on our postponed vacation.

Dear Rene, Good afternoon! We’re happy to hear that you’re satisfied with our service. We love travel but we also care more about your healthy. It’s a pity that you couldn’t visit China this time. Maybe you will consider a China trip after the virus situation calms down. Please avoid crowded places during this pandemic period and try to stay at home. Take care. China Highlights Business Team

I got excellent service from ChinaHighlights.
Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to China due to the Corona virus situation. Jason cancelled my 3 train tickets and arranged a 100% refund within just a few days. No "handling fees" and no questions asked - something other agencies should learn from!
If I visit China in the future I will definitely buy from them again.

Fantastic service provided for my fast train booking from Harbin to Dandong which fell in the Lunar New Year period when trains are full. Kept me up to date on changes and requests in very good English.
Went the extra mile.
