Airplane is faster than train, but we still choose to travel by train in China. We can see China more closely and have a chance to chat with local people more freely. Their English is limited, but we can still communicate with them with simple English and with the help of our tourist guides. Chinese people are warm and like to exchange their ideas with foreigners. We had a lot of fun. Also, travelling by train in China is convenient, comfortable, safe and cheap. It’s a tour of 8 days, covering three famous cities in China—Beijing(the capital), Xian(an ancient capital) and Shanghai(the economic capital). Besides visiting important places, we can do shopping in local market places, try some local delicacies or get a massage ….. a nice trip, good value…..
