I love this Train!
In this video I started in Longyang Road Metro Station, near the International Exposition Center, and terminate at Shanghai International Airport.
This is just a quick video of one of my favorite trains in the entire world. I still love the out dated, slow, noisy trains in Thailand and Malaysia that have tons of character, but this technological wonder is in entirely different class. Riding in it almost makes you feel as though it could just lift off the ground and Fly to your destination… and in a sense you are.
This train runs between the Longyang Road Metro Station, Huamu, Pudong and the Shanghai, Pudong International airport. At the LongYang station you can easily walk to the Shanghai, China, International Exposition Center, or walk accross a small walking alley to the SMT (Shanghai’s very modern Metro – Subway system).
At various times of the day the train’s run speeds are regulated at different velocities. This trip was of the slower 300kph runs. At other times of the day it travels at 430kph. The Maximum/Record speed for this train is 501 kph.
At any of these speeds it definately cuts down the travel time to and from the airport and is worth the price just to say you travelled on it.
