West Line High Speed Rail Tour

West Line High Speed Rail Tour


On your Journey to the West, set off from Sanya and return to Haikou along Hainan’s ruggedly beautiful West Coast. The highlights here are all natural beauty and pristine landscapes, letting you escape from the crowds and forge your own path. See the windmills spinning on the coast of Dongfang, and the lighthouse guarding the rocky shore. Stroll on the multicolored pebbles of Changjiang’s Chess Bay, take a boat ride into the mysterious depths of Danzhou’s Stone Flower Water Cave, and see the thousand year old Yangpu Salt Flats, stillproducing salt today. Devour a tender Lin’gao roast suckling pig, stop in Fushan for some fresh brewed locally grown coffee, and don’t forget to save some room for traditional Hainan treats at Haikou’s Qilou Snack Street!


The West Line High Speed Rail covers a total distance of 345 km., running between Haikou in the north and Sanya in the south, with 16 convenient stops linking West Hainan’s 6 towns and counties. This is a highly scenic route, crossing over 150 bridges and passing through a total of 13 tunnels. The completion of the West Line in Dec. 2015 created the world’s first round island high speed rail line, linking Hainan’s entire coastline in one fast and convenient 3 hour loop.


At Sanya and Haikou stations, passengers can switch between the East and West Lines. Some trains do not stop at all West Line stations, so be sure to check your specific train’s route before booking your ticket, which can be done through WeChat.
