According to the National Development and Reform Commission, the Xiamen-Changsha-Chongqing High-speed Railway is one of ten key projects that will be promoted during the 13th Five-year Plan (2016 to 2020). 
 
Currently, only three railway services linking Xiamen with Chongqing are available. Those train routes have travel times ranging from about 15 hours to nearly 39 hours. The newly planned high-speed railway line will cut travel time between the two cities to about 10 hours.
 
Planned route of the Xiamen-Changsha-Chongqing HSR:
Xiamen/厦门 - Longyan/龙岩 - Ganzhou/赣州 - Changsha/长沙 - Changde/常德 - Zhangjiajie/张家界 - Chongqing/重庆.
 
Chongqing, sometimes referred to as "the Mountain City," attracts visitors from home and abroad for its cultural heritage and tourist attractions. Its landform is uneven, and the city is built among mountains and hills, creating a beautiful and unique cityscape.
