After Korea, I flew to Shanghai as the first stop in my China tour. Everyone knows that China is developing very fast, but they make sure you notice it. From the airport to the city center, you can choose the maglev train, which brings you in just about 8 minutes. This is the only magnetic levitation train in public use on the Globe. During the 30 km trip, it speeds up above 300 km/h. That was my first experience in China. Impressive.
