Shanghai Maglev Train

When we arrived in Shanghai, being the techno-dweebs that we are, we just had to ride the MagLev train from Shanghai Pudong Airport to the Shanghai Metro's Longyan Road station.

The train ride is quite short (less than 8 minutes) but well worth the 50 yuan (about $6) just for the experience of riding at 431 KPH at ground level.

I took the video below (about 1 minute long) to show the speed that you see as you're riding along at that speed. This video is not retouched or sped up, that's the normal speed.
