Does anyone have experience trying to buy train tickets in China, while you were in another country? I have some friends who will be traveling there in a week or so. My Chinese friend said you now need to show your ID at the station to buy tickets. But since my other friends are not in China (and don't speak any Chinese), this might be difficult for them, and they are concerned the tickets will sell out before they can buy them. Does anyone out there know if there is a way for them to buy train tickets in advance? Thanks!!
(I'm hoping there hasn't been tons of discussion about this already. I've never had any luck using the search function in the community section.)
