Hi, Qingdao forum!
In a couple of weeks we will arrive in Qingdao from the ferry from South Korea.
The website of the Weidong Ferry tells me that we will arrive around 9 o'clock in the morning.
There will be some procedures at the ferry terminal (customs) and than we will travel to the train station of Qingdao to catch a train to Beijing.
1. Can we buy the train tickets at the Qingdao train station at the day itself or are the tickets Qingdao - Beijing likely to sell out a couple of days before?
2. If we need to pre-book, how long should we take for arrival procedures by boat, customs, traveling time to the train station (taxi?), collecting pre-booked train ticket etc.
Will the 12.13 train be to early or is it better to choose the 13.27 train?
