There are 2 ways to buy a train ticket. You can just show up at the train station when you arrive and buy the ticket straight at the station, most likely you will just have to wait a few hours and then you will be on your way. NB this method will not work during Chinese national holidays where train tickets are completely sold out several weeks in advance.
The other option is to book a ticket in advance either via the academy (free service) or get a Chinese friend to help you book the train tickets at the official website, since it is only in Chinese. If you book a ticket in advance make sure you have at least 4 hours from your plane lands until your train departs. It takes time to get from the airport to the stations, and at the stations you need to collect your ticket at a ticket office where the line very often is long and you need to check in for your train up to 40 minutes before your departure.

It is useful to have a Chinese Mandarin phrase book with you and the names of your destinations in Chinese.
