My wife and I plan to take a train from Xian to Hefei on April 30 as there is no direct flight to Hefei. April 30 is the day before May Day and the train station will be crowded. Where can we seek assistance to carry our luggage to the train? We do not mind paying for the service to avoid the hassle of going through the crowds. Please reply if you can help. Thank you.

You may find those "red hats" to help you carry your luggages. But they can just help you bring your luggages to the entrance of your carriage. They don't bring the luggages on the train. The service fee is usually CNY 5. Note that there are many fake "red hats" outside the railway staion. Don't get ripped off.

Even if you have someone to help you carry luggage, you'll still have to go through the crowds.
Pack less, it'll help. :)

GUEST21131 There are direct flights from Xian to Hefei.

GUEST13523 That's good news. Do you know which airline? My travel agent says there is now no direct flight.

GUEST21131 Check it here:

Airlines such as China Southern and Hainan Airlines operate the line, but not all the flights run daily.

GUEST68137 Hi Cherry,

Thanks for your suggestion. It will be quite a challenge to tell the difference between the genuine and the fake "red hats." Do these porters rally wear red hats?

Hmmm it looks like there're 2 Xi'an -- Hefei flights on 30/4, but operated by Tianjin Airlines.

GS7559 (1130--1255)
GS6501 (1650--1820)
