Maglev Journey

The revolutionary magnetic levitation train design is embodied in the first commercial Maglev Line developed in collaboration between Chinese and German engineers. Being the fastest public land-based transportation in the world, with a speed of 431 kph, this line features a principle that was described as sci-fi only a decade ago. Connecting the Longyang Road Station and the Shanghai Pudong International Airport, which are 30km away from each other, it takes only seven minutes to get between the two without actually touching the ground at any point of the line. 

Besides being a major tourist attraction because of its exclusive transportation principle, the Maglev Line is also a very fast and punctual means of transportation, allowing both tourists and Shanghai dwellers to get between different parts of the city in a timely fashion. But of course, the main reason for people using it since 2002 is its unprecedented speed, which is unthinkable in terms of other world cities. Of course, there are other speed train systems active in different parts of the planet, but none of them actually runs across a busy city like Shanghai. The line is active from early morning to nearly 10 in the evening, so you will certainly have plenty of opportunities to ride it.
