Vast fields of brilliant rapeseed flowers stretch as far as the eye can see, creating a dazzling golden patchwork set against emerald green rice paddies, quaint villages with white walls and red-tiled roofs, lucid waters and lush mountains.

Passengers are encouraged to look out of the window to take in these ephemeral floral vistas instead of just playing with their mobile phones while aboard high-speed trains. The scenes provide fleeting but unforgettable glimpses of nature's springtime splendor as they speed through idyllic countryside landscapes.

Some highly recommended routes for these fascinating sightseeing experiences include the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway linking China's capital city Beijing and Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province; the Huaihua-Hengyang railway connecting the cities of Huaihua and Hengyang in central China's Hunan Province; the Hengyang-Liuzhou railway between Hengyang city and Liuzhou city in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region; the Shanghai-Kunming high-speed railway that joins east China's Shanghai with Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province; as well as the Ganzhou-Shenzhen high-speed railway bridging Ganzhou city of east China's Jiangxi Province and Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
