High speed rail travel links across China
Many sections of these lines are already open with Beijing and Shanghai now being linked in around 5 hours, this is on a par with door to door flight times and definitely a trip worth considering when you are booking your next China holiday. Perhaps the most impressive of all is the Beijing to Guangzhou section, this 1,200 mile journey can now be done in 8 hours, pretty amazing when you consider the shorter service between New York and Miami in USA takes 30 hours!
So next time you're booking a China tour package, why not consider the HSR as a great way to travel around the Middle Kingdom? If travelling at 300km/h wasn't enough to get you excited then maybe some of the extra views that you will get from the train will make this new form of travel the one you use on your holiday. It certainly seems to be the future of train travel in China.
