China Train Tours

Yunnan is the center of the Trans-Asian Railway, which is a project to create an integrated freight railway network across Europe and Asia. The TAR is a project of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific. The project was initiated in the 1960s, with the objective of providing a continuous 8750 mile rail link between Singapore and Istanbul, Turkey as well as the possible further connections to Europe and Africa. At the time shipping and air travel were not as well developed, and the project promised to significantly reduce shipping times and costs between Europe and Asia. Yunnan Train tour is a part of Trans-Asian Railway tour. Yunnan-Viewtnam, Yunnan-Myanmar railways will be finished in few years, so we will provide more train tours combining Yunnan and the neighboring countries.
