The Nanchang-Jingdezhen-Huangshan High-Speed Rail recently began trial operations, meaning its official opening is just around the corner.

Setting out from Nanchang East Station, the rail traverses through Jiangxi province, including Nanchang, Shangrao, Jingdezhen, and enters Anhui province, concluding its journey at Huangshan North Station, with a total length of 286 kilometers and a designed speed of 350 km per hour.

The rail is linked to the Beijing-Guangzhou High-Speed Rail in Nanchang, enabling Hangzhou passengers to transfer to Fujian, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and even as far as Hong Kong's West Kowloon in the future.

As a vital part in the "Yangtze River Delta on Rails" project, Hangzhou West Station has become the third-largest transportation hub in Hangzhou and is currently serving 118 train routes. The routes connect to 146 cities across 24 provinces, including Beijing, Guangdong, Anhui, Henan, Hubei, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, and Shandong.

For those seeking the warmth of the south, departing from Hangzhou West Station allows for a swift journey to the "Egret Island" of Xiamen. In under 6 hours, travelers can find themselves on the romantic beaches savoring the unique charm of the coastal city.

For those with a desire to explore the heart of China, Beijing is just 4 hours and 25 minutes away by high-speed rail. From Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City to hutongs and local delicacies like Beijing roast duck, an adventure awaits.

Heading north, the high-speed rail extends to Changchun, the "Spring City of the North", showcasing the snowy landscapes of the northern regions. The journey covers a distance of over 2,100 km and takes approximately 11.5 hours to complete.

Hangzhou West Station isn't limited to northern destinations; it also offers a direct connection to Yinchuan in Ningxia. The route takes travelers through Zhejiang, Anhui, Henan, Shaanxi, Gansu, and Ningxia, spanning over 2,000 km and taking roughly 11.5 hours to complete. Yinchuan's charm is rooted in the northwest's sandstorms and the majesty of the Helan Mountains, a blend of simplicity and freedom.
