Baoying Railway Station, located east to Baoying New City, is a stop on the Lianyungang-Huai'an-Yangzhou-Zhenjiang railway line in Jiangsu province.
It is the first station on the Lianyungang-Huai'an-Yangzhou-Zhenjiang railway after entering Yangzhou.
Covering an area of about 9,000 square meters, the railway station is designed to be shaped like a lotus.
Baoying, a small town in Yangzhou that is about a four hour drive from Shanghai, is the undisputed lotus capital of the region. Every summer, the unspoiled marshland near the town is blanketed by many thousands of darkish green lotus leaves, some of them as large as the top of a standard side table. Embroidered on that vast green expanse is a multitude of colorful lotus flowers of all sizes, which radiate a delicate fragrance that fills the air, as well as brings a welcome relief to the stifling humidity and heat.
