Rail Tours in China

Rail Holidays in the Land of the Dragon

Touring China by rail is an ideal way to see a country that has given the world so much. From the 24 hour city of Beijing, to rural Xinjiang where vegetables are sold on roadside stalls, China is a land of diversity and extremes. Crossing China by train you can pass through the barren Gobi desert, the subtropical forests of the Guangzhou region and along the verdant banks of the Yangtze. See China by rail and you take in millennia of history that varies from the Great Wall to Tiananmen Square.

China by Rail - Traveller's Notes

Western guests crossing China by train often become confused by the Chinese tipping culture. In the West tipping is a sign of gratitude but in China it is seen as charity. In almost all areas of China tipping is offensive.

There has been much large scale development in China and rail travel is in the vanguard of this recent surge. China now operates the highest altitude rail service in the world with pressurised cabins to compensate for the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere.
