A must do in China. Only 2 of these trains in the world, one China and one in Germany . Gets up to 432 ks/hr and you really know it. Leaves the ground, held by magnetic force only, no tracks, no wheels. Make sure you record the speed which is on display in every carriage as it soars from 1-432 k/hr.

We went on it as an experience, but it actually goes from airport.

A must do.

Why yes:
- It brings you to the edge of the city centre in barely 8 minutes (30km!)
- (or) from the city to the pudong airport, east of the city, skipping all traffic and jams
- Fast, but you hardly feel it
- clean and comfortable
- there are excellent connections with other underground lines
- highly affordable (50¥ pp)
- you get to experience true height speed 431km/h

Why not:
- They came to pick you up
- (or) they bring you to the airport

The tip:
Be aware that the highest speed of 431 km/h is only reached between 9 and 11am and 14-16pm, otherwise the train will simply go at 300km/h

Very very fast way to get from the airport to a station in Shanghai, from which you can transfer to anywhere. It’s a good way to save ~30-40 minutes of time (but at a cost of 50 yuan extra)

We took the Mag Lev ride just to experience the speed not to specifically go anywhere. It was easy to book a ticket and a comfortable ride. You dont feel like you are travelling at 432kms per hour. Worth a look if you are a speed demon!!

The maglev is quiet, smooth and relatively in expensive. It’s just too bad it doesn’t go all the way to the city center. It takes only 8 minutes or less to complete the circuit from the metro station to the airport. There is plenty of space for luggage.
