China is building a high-speed rail network, similar to French TGV or Japanese "bullet trains". Top speeds are around 240 km/hour, 150 miles an hour. The trains are clean, comfortable and modern. Prices are reasonable and, on most routes, departures are frequent. These are easily the best way of getting around China where available.
