Video was taken by an UK traveller, showing the boarding procedure
, stations, business class lounge, scenery and each of the seating classes on the train.
The journey started from Shanghai Hongqiao and ended at Beijing South, covering 1,318 km in 4 hours 55 minutes.
China is far from the most advanced country but China had developed in such speed that no other country in the history can be matched. However, mentality and mannerism
cannot be changed or improved over night and that may take much longer time to do. But this doesn't mean we only concentrate
on the negatives in China but must recognize the positives.
Why is there no will power to build trains like this in the US! Can you imagine being able to get from NY to LA in 2-3 hours?
I'm from Iran. I had a chance to visit China 3 years ago and fortunately had a tripe with fast train from Shanghai to Beijing. It was a fantastic experience for me. Fast much more than 300 kilometers per hour but no shaking in your seat. Everybody has his opinion but for me the best advantages to use fast train in there was the view of nature like the river and green lands that I saw during my trip that I couldn't saw if I had trip by plain from Shanghai to Beijing.
and the US and Canada doesnt have this bec
because of the costs ! haha
U.S. and Canada is busy on how to figure out how to fleece
taxpayers and not build anything. In Toronto, they argue for over 10 years to extend 5 miles of subway tunnel. In China they build while in the west we talk and point fingers at each other. And also in US and Canada we build useless bureaucracies to enforce stupid and irrelevant business unfriendly regulations. That's why the Chinese and other Asian countries are getting ahead as we stagnate
