*** WARNING – Capsule sleepers are no longer available on the Beijing-Shanghai route. In addition, sometimes the China Train Company shows capsule sleepers on some trains but they are actually regular soft sleeper compartments. Travellers only find out while getting on the train. ***
China overnight bullet trains now have a new category of soft sleepers referred to as “capsule sleepers”. These are individual sleeping compartments.
These individual sleepers can be found on overnight D trains. On these trains, the speed has been reduced to make sure that travellers get a full night of sleep.
These are available on overnight D trains between Beijing and Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing, Shenzhen and Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing and Guangzhou and Shanghai.
