Many parents often worry about how to keep their children entertained during long train journeys, but for those traveling on the Z5 and Z6 trains between Beijing and Nanning, capital of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, their worries have been answered.

A temporary children's corner was introduced to provide entertainment for young passengers and offer a short break for their caretakers, with the aim to make journeys more enjoyable and relaxed, enhancing the travel experience for all passengers.

The service was initiated on Jan 26, coinciding with the start of the Spring Festival travel rush, on a sleeper train with a journey of about 2,500 kilometers and spanning nearly 23 hours between Beijing and Nanning.

During each service, the children's corner opens for two hours in the dining car. Train attendants inform passengers with children of the time and location, inviting them to join the activity.

"We set up reading, coloring, paper-cutting and block building areas at four tables. Children can engage in various activities according to their interests," train conductor Dong Liqiong said, adding that two attendants and staff from the dining car can assist the young passengers at the corner.
