2. Harmony CRH 380E
If you travel between Shanghai and Beijing, take the Harmony lines. It took four and a half years to build the tracks, costing upwards of $17 billion, and is now the world’s second-fastest train. Before the construction of this line, the 1,000Km (621 miles) drive would take about 10 hours. Now, this long ride takes less than 3 hours and the train rockets at speeds of 380Km/h (236mph).
1. Shanghai Maglev
The journey from Shanghai to Shanghai Airport only takes 7 minutes and 20 seconds, thanks to the incredible maglev train. This train uses magnets to levitate above the tracks, thus reducing friction and reaching speeds of 430Km/h (267mph).
