The routes range from convenient spots in the suburbs to astonishing views in remote mountains, said Zhou Zhengsu, deputy director of the provincial tourism department.

High-speed "flower express" trains have started running in northwestern China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region to help tourists on their spring outings.

Nearly 2,000 people took the express train to enjoy the apricot flowers in Turpan last weekend, while others traveled to the Xinjiang city by inter-city bus or car.

"We have mobilized departments to serve incoming tourists and make sure they have a pleasant stay in Turpan," said Chen Shuguo, head of the local tourism department.
