Hopping on a train to see the changing landscape of China and experience the country's diverse customs has become a popular holiday getaway.


Here are some scenic train routes across China, each with its own features and sceneries.




HARBIN-DALIAN RAILWAY




One of the trunk lines in northeastern China, the Harbin-Dalian railway is China's first high-speed passenger transport route throughout frigid zones. The route is renowned for its high resistance to snowstorms, sandstorms and thunderbolts. People curious about black soil are recommended to enjoy this train tour.





BEIJING-GUANGZHOU RAILWAY




Stretching 2,298 km long, it is the longest high-speed railway in the world with a designed speed of 350 km/hour. Connecting the capital city of Beijing in the north with the tourist city of Guangzhou in the south, the line helped cut the travel time from nearly 30 hours to about eight.



It's also a scenic line as there are many stops offering picturesque sights and interesting places to visit. For instance, travelers may stop at Zhengzhou Station to explore the city of Anyang, the birthplace of the Book of Changes and the land of Oracle Bone Inscriptions.





BEIJING-SHANGHAI RAILWAY




A vertical route linking China's two significant economic areas, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area and the Yangtze River Delta, this railway passes the famous Yangtze River and Yellow River, both the cradles of the Chinese civilization. Travelers may get off at Qufu Station in Shandong Province for sightseeing at the hometown of Confucius, or have an excursion in Nanjing, the ancient capital of six dynasties in east China's Jiangsu Province.





HEFEI-FUZHOU RAILWAY




Built across complex mountainous terrain, it is the most beautiful railroad route connecting east China's Anhui Province with coastal Fujian Province. Along this route, there are many cultural and natural landscapes worth discovering. Travelers can visit the ancient city Hefei embedding the history of the Three Kingdoms period (220-280 AD) or just stroll in the forests of the Wuyi Mountain to enjoy an oxygen spa.





GUIYANG-GUANGZHOU RAILWAY




It is China's first high-speed railroad connecting the Pearl River Delta and the western region, providing passengers with a feast of pristine and unique sceneries in southern and southwestern China. Travelers also get to experience the culture of different ethnic minority groups, including Miao, Buyi, Dong, Tujia, Yi and etc.





CHENGDU-KUNMING RAILWAY




The 1,100 km-long railway extends from southwest China's Sichuan to Yunnan Province, hailed as "one of the three miracles of conquering nature in the 20 century" by the United Nations. Taking this route, people get to experience a Chinese culture of depth and variety. They could go to hotpot parties in Chengdu to feel the bustle of city life, explore the divine Buddhist Mountain of Emei or bask themselves in the balmy weather of the "Spring City" Kunming in Yunnan.




QINGHAI-TIBET RAILWAY




The world's highest and longest railway stretches 1,956 km long on the roof of the world, crossing plateaus, mountains, lakes and a variety of landscapes. Many people heading for Tibet prefer the train to flights to give themselves a transition to get better acclimatized to the thin air of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Along the way, people can see breathtaking landscapes and capture wildlife such as Tibetan antelopes with cameras if they are lucky enough.
