This service has a mixture of sleeper carriages and seat carriages.
Sleepers are available in both First and Second Class - Both types are air-conditioned and have a choice of either "Upper" or "Lower" berths.
The lower berths in 2nd class are much more comfortable, as they are much wider than the upper berths.
To book these lower berths during the high season you will have to book at least a week in advance, as they sell out very quickly compared to the upper berths.
For the budget traveller and for those on shorter journeys, there is a choice of cheap 2nd and 3rd Class Seats in fan cooled carriages.
