Ride through a sea of flowers along railway


Join this train to Spring, as it rides through a sea awash with flowers and blossoming trees. It’s Line S2, a Beijing suburban railway, that can take you on a tour of the Great Wall while you enjoy the sights of Spring along the way.

It runs from Huangtudian in Changping District to Badaling in Yanqing District, the most visited section of the Great Wall of China. It follows the old Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railway, combining history with a beautiful journey.

The train passes a zigzag section of railway, designed and engineered in 1905 by Zhan Tianyou, the“Father of China’s Railroad”. He created this to help passing trains overcome steep gradients in the rugged mountain areas near the Great Wall.
