Why is there no separation from Business class/Premium class/First class to second class
The second class can be very noisy when you have baby screaming. Hope there is some sort of door that separate passengers (children running around) from second class/first class to business class/premium class, and to make it much more exclusive. Some second class passengers even go to first class and sit there throughout their trip, which is not fare for passengers who paid full fare.

Hi Margaret,

Thanks for the question again! At present, only business class carriages are separated from other kinds of carriages as those business ones are usually situated at the both ends of the train. Other carriages cannot be separated, because that may bring some troubles for security patrolling and ticket checking during the train journey.

Hope this helps and enjoy your China tour!
Why is there no business class or premium class High speed rail train to/\'from Hong Kong for certain routes
Why is there no business class or premium class high speed rail train to/from Hong Kong from Xiamen etc? We need that, especially international travelers who can sleep in a quiet environment.

Hi Margaret,

Thanks for your question! Whether there are business seats, it depends on the specific type of the high-speed train and the running routes. Different types of high speed trains and trains on different routes may equip with different seats. Currently all the direct train between HK and Xiamen have no business class seats. If you want to take business class seats, you can travel to Shenzhen first and then transfer to Xiamen.

Wish you a nice day!
