It wasn’t on my bucket list but man, our trip on the world’s fastest train in Shanghai was awesome. I was actually in China for the purpose of checking off the Great Wall and Forbidden City from my bucket list. The last few days of our tour were in Shanghai and our tour guide changed our itinerary to include a round trip ride on the Maglev train.
It was a short ride from the outskirts of Pudong to Shanghai Pudong International Airport a distance of 18.6 miles. We hit and maintained a top speed of 431 Km/h (267 mph). It was an awesome ride. My little pea brain has trouble comprehending a magnetic field capable of levitating a train and then propelling it at such high speed.
If you ever find yourself in Shanghai definitely take this train ride.
