Date: 2012.10.18 Editor: Evelyn Shi

High speed railway from Beijing to Hefei, the provincial capital of Anhui, has put into operation from 16th October, thus reducing the travelling time between the two cities to less than 4 hours.


Anhui is an east China province which hosts Huangshan tourist destination. Huangshan is the home to Mount Huangshan and Shexian County. Mount Huangshan is known for ranges of beautiful mounts, valleys, towering pines, unique rock formations and hot springs; while Shexian County has many well-preserved courtyards, gardens, pagodas and bridges, most of these were built during Ming and Qing Dynasties, and some were constructed as early as Song Dynasty.
