Man this was amazing. I took a video both ways. Nice to see how you pass the cars. Comfortable though. One could walk without a problem. I guess inertia.

You have just got to try it once. First class isn't really worth it but it's China,, so to get the whole cabin to yourself is something you can truly appreciate, away from the madness and away from everybody else.

Buy a ticket - or better a multiple use card. Very fast and time saving. No problem to get a seat. Speed: 300-400 km/h, depending on time slot

We took the train from the airport to the city. It was fast clean and efficient. The price was much more reasonable than a cab. I would definitely Travel by Maglev Anytime it was available to me.

There was no doubt we had to take the maglev into Shanghai from the airport. The ticket was more than taking the subway-$7 USD vs $1 USD, but it was fast and smooth and amazing. Like most mass transit trains, it's rushed to get on...More

It goes different speeds at different times of day, we caught it in the afternoon and it only did 300kph of its potential 420kph. Our hotel was nowhere near its destination so it wasn’t very convenient for us.

First, it depends if you have a transit visa or not. You theoretically can get a visa upon arrival at the immigration area which will allow you to pop into town. If you do have a visa, the maglev train doesn't start until... More

You can always catch a Maglev, doesn't matter if you leave the airport or not. Just buy a ticket and go like you take any train. I think you might want to ask again as your question is not clear. Do you think you can't... More
