South China's island province Hainan opened a new stretch of track that completes the world's first high-speed train line circling an island.
The circular line stretches across the beautiful landscapes of 12 different cities at over 200 kilometers per hour. It reduces the travel time from around eight hours to three hours and 10 minutes.
