Whether you go to China to travel, work or study, take the time to explore the third-largest country in the world (or fourth-largest depending on how you measure). The quintessential way to explore the Middle Kingdom is by rail, and with an ever-expanding high-speed rail network, it’s an increasingly practical way to travel. Particularly on the country’s densely populated eastern seaboard, train travel is the easiest and most economical way to see the top China travel destinations.
Whether you’re traversing the well-worn route from Beijing to Shanghai, hopping on a 30-minute ride from Shanghai to Suzhou or taking the transition to Lhasa’s incredible altitude gradually by rail, you’ll get to see the incredibly diverse landscape of China just out your window.

Peddlers everywhere and no air conditioner in the waiting room. The condition of this station is a shame for a city like Shenzhen.
There are trains from Yiwu to Shenzhen West. I've been there once but It's not as well known as Luohu Station and Shenzhen North.
It took me a while to find the station after I got out of the taxi. It wasn't as conspicuous as other modern buildings around. Shenzhen is a green city, including the station.
It's lively but not messy here. Good memories for me!
It's in Nanshan. There are many trains but the transportation there is not very convenient.
