It's the only train of this kind operating in the world. In was launched in Shanghai back in 2002 and it goes as fast as 431km/h. The train ride is only about 7 minutes long, but it's a magnificent experience. The only downfall is that the train doesn't take you to the downtown of Shanghai, so after taking the trainride, you still need to take a taxi or public transportation to reach the downtown area. Single trip costs RMB 50.
