China by Train

Voit lukea tämän blogin myös suomeksi: Junalla Kiinassa.This blog about travelling in China is our present for you. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who hosted us in Ulan Batar, Nanjing, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Guangzhou, Shunde, and Shenzen. Travelling by train in China is fast and efficient—sometimes even too much so. You can cross the country from North to South, and from West to East in less than two days by express train. We were waiting for a slow, Trans-Siberian -like experience and were surprised by the speed and relatively short distances. On the other hand, we enjoyed Chinese trains most of which are modern and air-conditioned. We didn’t have to sweat nor suffer from dust. You can see detailed photos of all train types and classes in the related photo album: China by Train.
