how soon can we book train tickets for overnight sleeper train to Xian from chongqing. We are a large party who will need to book 4 or 5 soft sleeper cabins on 2nd April
When I get to China, I would let a travel agency book the train for you. They do it fairly cheap and you do not have to chase the ticket. Be sure that they have the travel agent member, and number that is sanction to do business in China. Most will be posted on the front door of the building. Most likely you will get all the things you need to travel that day, or overnight.

It usually allows you to book train ticket 10 days in advance. Since you have 4 to 5 passengers, it might be difficult to book your own tickets at the Railway Station. Unless you have friends in China, they can book online nowadays or at any Railway Station. Otherwise, booking thru travel agent might be good idea!
