No, I have not, but from previous train experience, that will be a 30+ hours on a train, about 3,100 Kms, 20 stops or so, and I will not settle for anything less than a soft sleeper.  And within a soft sleeper, I will choose a lower bunk, it gives you more room and flexibility.

This is not a direct answer, but kinda related. Be extra careful to book as far ahead as you possibly can (I know this can be tough). Lots of colleagues were grumpy last week because they missed out on train tickets home; seems the trains are particularly busy at the moment because the airport's been shut so often this winter.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
