For about $10 you get to experience the Maglev high speed train. The top speed is 306 km/h. It’s only a 7 minute ride but it’s very smooth and quiet. Similar to the bullet train in Japan. A good way to get to Shanghai city center form Pudong airport, cheaper than a taxi.

What a trill to be travelling at 430km and hour. A 7 minute trip and super fun, We did it like it was a thrilled ride there and back.

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
