I think the travel fare in China is expensive specially for students. When we have to travel, the travel fare cost a lot. If I want to travel to Chongqing from Shandong, the travel fare is more than 500 Yuan, that is really expensive for students .:)

WHat do you think about this?:)

I don't count as £--->RMB exchange rate is excellent

I'm lucky, but certainly fares are not cheap for Chinese like students. On long journies they can't easily afford a bunk, so it's a bit harsh. Then again one can't just make seats cheaper because someone is a bit poor.

Perhaps a series of railcards that give an annual/multiple-annual discount on all travel for a one-time fee might be an idea. If you travel by rail a lot you could save a great deal of money that way. Plus the companies won't lose out, as it will encourage people to travel by train (especially as budget air travel becomes more of a reality in China) and they make a quick profit from selling the railcards.
