Trains to Hainan Island from Mainland China

Travel by trains from Mainland China to Hainan

Hainan is the second largest island of China after Taiwan. Though it is Island, it is still possible to travel by trains from Mainland China.  Travelling by train from Mainland China to Hainan would be a good choice for travelers with enough time and want to enjoy the landscapes along the railway.

But some may wonder how you can travel from Mainland to an Island without a railway? NO, no railway connects Hainan Island with Mainland China, but the Chinese engineers solved the problem with China’s first sea-rail link by using a ferry to transfer the trains. All the trains will be disconnected upon arrival at Hainan, last stop on Mainland China, then a ferry will transfer them to Hainan Island on the trains will be reconnected and continue their journey to Sanya.
