Maglev Train, Shanghai

See the Shanghai Guide ›
Shanghai
Concierge.com's insider take:

Blink and you'll miss the ride. The world's fastest passenger train, with a top speed of 268 miles per hour, takes just eight minutes to journey back and forth between Pudong International Airport and Longyang Lu metro station (the same journey takes at least 45 minutes by car). Unless you are averse to g-force, simply sit back and enjoy the smooth ride—or join the throng of passengers pointing their digital cameras at the onboard speedometer waiting to catch the optimum moment. Longyang Lu connects with the Shanghai metro system and there are plenty of taxis on hand; it's a 30-minute drive from downtown Puxi, and just 10 to 15 minutes from Pudong's best hotels. A one-way ticket costs $6.90, but if you show your same-day flight ticket at the counter, it'll only be $5.50 (www.smtdc.com).

Open daily 6:45 am to 9:30 pm; trains run at a reduced speed (186 miles per hour) before 8:45 am and after 5 pm.
