My Maglev Experience at Shanghai

My trip from Shanghai Pudong Airport was an exhilarating blend of speed and urban exploration, thanks to the Maglev train.

It’s just super convenient and very comfortable:

The Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) Train, clocking speeds up to 301 KM/hr, is a marvel of modern transportation, making the journey to Longyang Road Station both swift and smooth.

Starting at Pudong Airport, the Maglev’s rapid acceleration is a thrill. The landscape blurs as the train whizzes past, reducing a journey that would take hours into mere minutes. As a fan of the Maglev, I couldn’t help but marvel at this engineering feat, a stark contrast to the slower pace of air travel.

At Longyang Road Station, the transition from futuristic speed to the bustling city life was seamless. Here, I stumbled upon a delightful surprise – the 85 °C Bakery, a familiar sight from San Francisco Bay Area. This bakery, known for its delicious pastries and coffee.

The final leg of my journey involved switching to a regular train, a more grounded travel experience but no less efficient. This part of the trip offered a chance to observe daily life in Shanghai, a city where tradition and modernity coexist harmoniously.

I’m excited! It’s my first time in China proper!
