Unique train taps into national trend toward celebrating vibrant rural customs during major festivals

On Jan 26, in the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong autonomous prefecture in Guizhou province, a slow green train set off on a routine journey, albeit one with a remarkable twist.

To the beautiful melodies of folk songs and the jovial laughter of passengers, the train's interior was transformed into a lively and festive venue. As one of the events marking this year's national cunwan (countryside gala) project for Spring Festival, launched by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, performers ingeniously used the carriages as a mobile stage, and delivered splendid performances to passengers traveling along the route.
