When I took the train, we reached a max speed of 300 km/h and the journey to the Pu Dong area of Shanghai took about 7.5 minutes. Definitely take it if you have time!
Shanghai Maglev Train
If you arrive in Shanghai and want a unique experience, I suggest you take the Shanghai Maglev Train. It can reach 350 km/h (220 mph) in 2 minutes, with a maximum speed in normal operation of 431 km/h (267 mph). During a test run on 12 November 2003, the vehicle achieved a top speed of 501km/h, which currently stands as the speed record for high speed transit vehicles. The project took 10 billion yuan (US$1.2 billion) and 2.5 years to complete the 30.5 km (19 miles) track.
