An inter-city express linking Beijing and Zhangjiakou, the two candidate co-host cities for the 2022 Winter Olympics, will start construction this year, the Beijing Youth Daily reported.

The high-speed rail line stretches 174 kilometers, covering nine stations, construction is expected to last four and a half years.

It's estimated that the travel time between the two cities would be shortened to 50 minutes from around three hours.

Besides a shorter travel time, some scenic spots along the planned rail line is another reason that makes the express worth trying.
