An Exciting New Asian Rail Adventure

Exciting news from a country on the up for tourists, as China 'opens up' a realm of new opportunities for its future visitors. All aboard!

Yesterday, it was announced that work had formally begun on a stretch of railway which will connect China with Thailand. The railway will be over 400km long and will link up the southern city of Kunming in China (above), with the northern Thai city of Nong Khai (below).

The line will open up incredible opportunities for spectacular tours and holidays across South-east Asia and China, passing through Laos' incredible cities including Louang Namtha, Luang Prabang and the capital Vientiane.

The project is being funded and led by the Chinese government and is expected to be completed in 5 years time, connecting to China's existing high-speed rail, increasing its possibilities from both a tourism and a business perspective.

Speaking on the development, Laurent Kuenzle, CEO of Asian Trails told TTG Asia: “It will not only be the foundation of creating new packages within Thailand, Laos and China, but also cross-border tour packages particularly between Laos and Thailand as well as Laos and Yunnan.”

He continued, “This is not only of interest for local tourism but also to international tourists who will be interested in exploring these new routes.” So, it seems like exciting times ahead for those wanting to tour China and south-east Asia and with only 5 years or so to wait, the planning can begin soon.
