It isn’t China’s best known high-speed train, but since it deputed in late June 2015, Hefei-Fuzhou bullet train has gained great attention as it traverses through some of the country’s most beautiful destinations, making it ‘the most beautiful train ride in China’.
Thanks to the world’s largest and most complicated high-speed rail network, travelling China by rail is a joy, not least for international tourists. The newly opened Hefei-Fuzhou bullet train runs at the speed of up to 300 km per hour, and finishes the 850-km journey in 3.5~4.5 hours.
From Fuzhou in the south to Hefei in the north, the high speed train stops at scenic or cultural destinations like Wuyishan Mountain, Wuyuan Town, Yellow Mountain, Shexian Country, etc. Just get off from the strain, and make yourself an East China adventure with very distinctive activities.
