Road

All cities and provinces are easily accessible through the development of the highway system, with nearly 1.278 million kilometer stretching across the country. Compare that to the length of highways in 1949, 80,000 kilometer. Now, cities and provinces that were once inaccessible, are within reach. Major expressways such as: Shenyang-Dalian, Beijing-Tianjin-Tanggu, Guangzhou-Shenzhen, Jinan-Qingdao and Yichang-Huangshi are a few examples.

Roads are smooth and wide when you travel to most of the big cities, but situations are quite tough if you visit remote mountainous regions, such as some regions in Guizhou and Yunnan provinces.
