Visiting Yancheng the Former ‘Salt City’

E-mail Print

Yancheng is one of the fastest developing cities in China.

When visiting the city of Yancheng, often nicknamed the Salt City due to the salt harvesting fields all around the city, there is much to see in terms of China’s massive cultural development over recent years, moving away from their salt-based economy towards manufacturing and green energy.

E-mail Print

The new high speed train from Shanghai to Nanjing, which began operations on Jul. 1, 2010, has cut travel time between cities from three to four hours to about one hour and 40 minutes with prices 56 percent higher than regular trains. Train speeds can go as quickly as 300 km per hour and trains starting with G have the highest speed.

Ticket prices begin at RMB146 for a one way second-class seat and RMB230 for a first-class seat. The difference in comfort between the two is not huge. The second-class seats have five people per row or 100 people per carriage as opposed to first class with only 80 people per carriage.
