Yes.

Look at the picture below. This is the OLD Hainan West Ring(120km/h Maxspeed:160km/h), that connect with the East Ring which opened today.

The NEW Hainan West Ring will be 250km/h, I think. Official statement it's "200km/h and upgradeable to 250km/h"

With so many lines opening and so many new lines starting construction at this moment, the minister of railways must be busy traveling around the country

Thanks for posting the pictures. Some questions...

Are drinks complementary on CRH like they are on most airlines? If not, how expensive are the drinks compared to normal prices?

Is first class the areas with seats facing each other over a table, and second class all seats facing forward?

Does the 80 minute Haikou--Sanya time include all the intermediate stops, or is it direct? How long is the trip with all the stops vs. direct?

How long does it take to travel by car from Haikou to Sanya?

That's because Jilin includes Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.
