Finally,I got a berth ticket back to hometown. It's a long story,at first,I can't order any berth or seat ticket back to hometown,all tickets were sweeping away just in seconds after the selling time,after a long time route planing,I had to change my train in another province,that trip include 9 hours' standing and 11 hours's sleeping,how terrible it is! Unexpected matter came,I often could easy to buy a return berth ticket in the past years,but I couldn't buy one this year,and there is only one berth ticket available,but the date is 2 days ahead of my schedule date,I bought this ticket,and that means I had to set off earlier,or I'll get very little time in hometown,I bought a seat instead of previous tickets,22 hours' sitting on train is really an unendurable time. Today,I found another ticket of the date I plan to set off,it's bussines trip berth ticket,I take it without any hesitation,it cost me 150$. The story repeat every year again and again,I'm so curious about when the country can provide enough tickets to people to let us back to hometown with a light heart......

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well i can understand your situation and i know how difficult it has become to get a berth ticket these days. Even here in India u have to book your tickets 3-4 months before otherwise u have no chance of getting tickets. it has become a headache for every passenger if they will do tickets at the last moment. What say?
