Baoding enjoys a good transportation network. The Beijing- Guangzhou Railway Line runs through Baoding from north to south, it takes about one hour for a train from Beijing to Baoding. Beijing is a short train ride of 85 miles north, and therefore Baoding has been considered a strategic southern gateway and protectorate for Beijing through the centuries.
