The Shanghai Maglev Train

One of the highlights of my trip to Shanghai is the trip from the airport to downtown on board the Maglev train.  It's a very fast train.

It looks like the robot Wall-E.

The train has a speedometer that the passengers can see

And we're off

From 38 to 232 kph in a minute

It reaches top speed of 300 kph.  They say that there are two trips in the day when it reaches a top speed of 420++ kph

A one way journey on the train will cost you 50 RMB.  80 RMB for a round trip ticket.  You can also show your boarding pass to get a discounted rate.
