Hangzhou has a "slow train" that passes through 46 stations, whole trip takes 42 hours, and scenery is beautiful along the way.
I don't know if you've ever ridden a high-speed rail. Anyone who has experienced it will find that our country has indeed made a lot of progress in this area over years, because speed is constantly improved, want to get to your destination faster.
Many foreign friends came to our country to experience it, and they were really shocked.
One, "slow train"
But while most people admire country's great progress and want better development, there are such a small number of people who start to miss their past. After all, at that time there was no high-speed rail or subway, only slow trains.
Although there are still trains, few people choose them. After all, in this society, time is money. If you spend too much time on train, losses are really too great.
Of course, if it's about saving money and you have nothing to put off, train is still a good choice. After all, along way you can still see scenery of journey, so it's good to calm down and think about life.
So is there a "slow train" in our country? You may not believe it, but it's true, and it's in Hangzhou.
Second, origin of name
This "slow train" is called K48 train. It departs from Hangzhou and passes through 46 stations. You can buy tickets according to your needs. If you want to from start to last stop at Qiqihar Station, it will take a total of 42 hours. To be honest, it's really tedious and a lot of time wasted, but if you want everything, no problem.
However, some friends will ask this question, so all trains starting with K shouldn't be express trains? But why do we still call it "slow train"? In response to this problem, this is actually: compared to past trains, they are definitely faster, but compared to current high-speed railways, they will be much slower, so if you are in a hurry, preference is to still given to high-speed rail.
Third, related content
There will be a total of 46 stops this time. If you want to ride, you must go to official website in advance to check where nearest stop is and then go there. Don't be in a daze listening to other people's words, you will end up sitting closer to them, it's really a waste of money. If you want to travel, you can still choose this train, there are stops in Suzhou, Jinan, etc..
It will be even better if you are flying out of Hangzhou, because departure time is almost always fixed, at 1:43 pm, you can arrive half an hour earlier, because you need to check ticket, put your luggage on bus, and find a seat, etc. e. After all, this is a train, and speed is not high, so compared to tickets for high-speed trains, it should be cheaper. By comparison, it will only account for a quarter of a high-speed rail ticket, which is quite good, and workers won't be forced to buy it.
Fourth, riding instructions
1. You must bring all your documents. Although you can now buy tickets online, if you don't bring your ID, you won't be able to check your ticket. Like those friends who have only a temporary ID, they should go to check-in desk in advance to get advice on how to check ticket.
2. If you have any problems, find front desk in time. After all, station is still very large and different trains will pass each time period, so if you run into any problems you don't understand, please be brave. If you want to go to front desk for a consultation, don't force yourself or you'll be in trouble if you end up on wrong train.
3. Protect your belongings after boarding bus. You should be aware that flight attendants on bus can only guarantee safety of everyone's life, but cannot protect everyone's property. So put valuables on body, and put suitcase on shelf as close to you as possible so that you can always look at it.
However, it should be noted that things that are easy to fall should not be placed on top, otherwise, if train is shaken while moving, things may shake down and eventually fall into their own .
4. Take care of yourself and follow rules. We often on Internet see how impolite people are exposed on train. For example, put your feet on side of other person, casually remove your shoes, etc.
This is very, very inappropriate in public. In addition, there are people who speak loudly or release entertainment programs in public, and they are all wrong.

Although our country has developed really well in recent years, many advanced technologies have emerged. But I still hope that everyone will not be able to forget original idea and will not forget how we got here. S-Bahn is really fast, but most of time you can't see scenery on road, and on subway too, most of it is in tunnel. So we don't have much time to take train and slowly enjoy beautiful scenery. I hope everyone can ride if they have opportunity, especially friends in Hangzhou, take "slow train" and go for a ride to have fun !
