Soft Seat on China Railways

Soft Seat

Soft Seat (软座) was formerly “elite travel” class on the Chinese railways system. These are (comparatively softer) arranged in a 2+2 layout, and the benefit was that the carriage did not admit standing ticket holders, thereby ensuring riders more privacy, peace, and quiet. These seats are now available to anyone — and they are quite affordable!
