Shanghai Transportation: 277 reviews and 350 photos

If you can afford a little luxury, and have 12 hours to spare the new Z class trains is one of the most comfortable way to travel between Beijing and Shanghai.

Between 7pm and 8pm each day, a Z class train will leave every 7 mins and reach the other city non-stop in 12 hours flat. It is fully air conditioned, and a sleeper costs around 480 RMB.

The best part is, you can to rest peacefully for at least 6-8 hours, and the train will take you right into the city center. Beats taking a plane, where you have to worry abour getting to and from the airport, chek in and check out etc.

You can buy the tickets at the train station or ticketing office around the city.
