The Maglev train is advertised as ?The fastest you will travel without flying!? This high speed train reaches a controlled speed of 430 km?s per hour, (267 mph,) and runs between the Longyang road Metro station and the Shanghai International Airport.

Anne and decided to travel on the train by doing a return journey at a coast on 80 Yuan, (US$11.00,) to experience the thrill of speed and to watch the scenery literally rush by the window.

To travel the 30 km?s, (19.6 miles,) between the two stations took 7 minutes and 21 seconds! The trip was very smooth and extremely quiet. (Except for Anne and me commenting on the speed all the time!)

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
