The Xianggui Railway, built between 1937-1939 and 1950-1955, carries passengers to the cities near Southeast Asian countries and lets them enjoy the beautiful scenery along the line.

With a total length of 1,013 kilometers, the railway extends from Central China's Hengyang city, well-known for a tourist attraction - Mountain Heng in Hunan province, to South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region's Pingxiang city bordering Vietnam, linking inland China with some ASEAN countries.
