China’s high-speed train

High-speed service reduces the travel time from Guilin, picturesque city in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, to Beijing from 26 hours to 10.5 hours. And Amazingly, this time there are totally four new lines opened in Guangxi. Given that Guangxi is the only region in China linked to Southeast Asia, international travelers and businessmen (especially those from Southeast Asian Nations) will also be benefited from these newly high-speed railways in easy reach of the country’s capital city Beijing or Guangxi’s other ethnic group regions, like Liuzhou and Nanning.

Another remarkable railway is from Xiamen to Shenzhen, which rails along Xiaman, Shantou, Shenzhen and other five cities in Fujian and Guangdong provinces, and connects Shanghai and Hangzhou in eastern China. Xiamen-Shenzhen high speed railway runs at 200 km per hour, and takes only 3.5 hours instead of around 12 hours before. This will surely promote the economic development along the railway and greatly alleviate the traffic pressure.
