We cannot 100% guarantee to successfully reserve the soft sleeper tickets due to short presale period and tight ticketing especially during the peak seasons (June to October) and Chinese festivals. If soft sleeper tickets are not available, we can still try to book hard sleeper or travelers may consider to take airplane instead.
