It is on par with the most scenic high-speed railways in China – and with great views of Great Wall.
The train ride of S2 starts from Beijing North, with stops at Qinghe, Changping, Nankou, Badaling Great Wall, and finally reaches Yanqing. The highlight is Juyongguan Pass, one of the best-preserved and glamorous ‘Walls’ of Beijing, without the crowds.
For those looking for a day trip escaping from Beijing, you’re encouraged to take this train journey, priced at RMB 6 yuan.
In spring, the train twists its way through the cherry blossom and apricot blossom of Juyongguan Great Wall. Immerse yourself in the fresh air and warm sunlight of spring.
In summer, it is surrounded by a green world, through which the Great Wall traverses.
In autumn, marvel at the fall foliage…
While the winter makes it Snowpiercer.
