Bernard, the reason it is peak is because it will be Chinese new year. The issue is more likely to be availability than price. Zuji is normally quite good with internal chinese flights.

If it wasn't the peak season, you could always just book at your hotel reception.

Hotels in Beijing and Shanghai are great at organising domestic tickets, and if you are in a hurry, someone on a bike turns up half an hour later with the ticket.

Thanks for your assistance. I have managed to get someone living in Beijing to book on my behalf.

I recommend the train. Leaves at 19:30 & arrives at 07:30. Very comfortable sleeper bed costs less than A$100.

I DON'T recommend the train. It is quite a modern train, but:
1. It is about the same price as a discount plane ticket, but takes much longer.
2. I woke up in the morning, and having druken my water the previous night, I went to the bar to buy a bottle of water. They had ran out of all drinks (alchololic and soft drinks and water).
3. The meals are worse than plane meals.

But in saying that, one good thing is that it arrives in Shanghai city, rather than having to travel from the airport.

1. Timing debatable. Leaving and arriving at city centres overnight takes no time out of schedule. Not the same as 2-3 hours at the front and back end of each flight during the day.
2. True, usually all drinks sold out before midnight. Plan ahead.
3. True. Take vegemite sandwiches.
