YUXI, China, Jan. 14, 2022 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

On January 3, the China-Laos international freight train service had been put 
into operation for one month, sending 670,000 passenger trips and transporting 
170,000 tons of goods, with the value exceeding 500 million yuan (about 78.5 
million U.S. dollars). 

Yuxi City in southwest China's Yunnan Province has a 145-km-long section of the 
1,035-kilometer China-Laos railway, with five stations crossing the city's 
downtown, Yuxi, Eshan, Yanhe, Huanian and Yuanjiang.

As of December 23, 2021, the number of passenger trips passing Yuxi Station had 
exceeded 85,000. Since the first international freight transport train in Yuxi 
was sent from Yanhe Station on December 27th, more than 50 cargoes of cold 
chain transport goods had been sent, according to the Publicity Department of 
Yuxi City.

A ride on the China-Laos train offers a convenient way to experience the unique 
natural scenery and cultural customs along the Yuxi section. The Chengjiang 
fossil site, as the only fossil world heritage site in Asia, reveals the 
evolutionary history of Cambrian earth organisms and is regarded as one of the 
most amazing scientific discoveries of the 20th century. Ailao Mountains spans 
tropical and subtropical zones, and is listed by the United Nations as a Man 
and Biosphere Reserve for forest ecosystem positioning observation and 
international migratory bird protection. Yuxi, with its unique history and 
culture, will welcome tourists from all over the world with open arms.
