High Speed Train | Luoyang to Xian
New High-Speed Train Option | Luoyang to Xian
For those looking to tour one of China’s most popular ancient capitals, Xian, a new high-speed train makes the journey much easier and quicker. The trip from Luoyang, another historic city in China’s east, takes just over two hours on the new bullet train.
The journey between these two cities has always been a popular one for tourists because of the number of ancient historical sites that are located in both places.
We very much enjoyed our first ever high-speed train experience, traveling from Luoyang to Xian. Our guide James bought our tickets for us and explained the process of catching the train. The process was a bit nerve-wracking because when our train arrived we only had a few minutes to walk a long distance, find our train car and enter the train. We made it, but just barely.
After getting onboard and finding our seats, our remaining experience/time to Xian was awesome (very smooth and quiet). The train car displayed our speed, and at times we were traveling over 200 miles per hour (ca. 322 kilometers per hour). Our total time traveling was a little over 2 hours.
