Travel from Beijing to Shanghai in comfort with China’s new D311 sleeper train!
Dubbed the “moving hotel”, the high-speed trains feature personalised compartments that are designed for a single passenger. According to The Beijinger, each bunk has a curtain for privacy, a table, a clothes hanger, a reading light, safety railing, an electrical recharging outlet, and an adjustment control for air flow.
And that’s not all, the trains, which offer free Wi-Fi, travel at a speed of 250 kilometers per hour and can hold up to 880 passengers. The new model was also designed to be quieter and smoother than other trains.
The D311 sleeper train made its first trip from Beijing South Railway Station to Shanghai Railway Station on Saturday (1st July). Chinese train ticketing website Qunar lists the price of a soft sleeper ticket on the D311 as RMB 732 (approximately RM462).

Although the design of the individualised compartment looks almost seamless, it has already received some complaints. Apparently, the luggage space, which is said to be able to hole 2 25-inch bags, is non-adjustable.
Besides that, passengers say only the upper berth passenger can stand up in the case of an emergency.
