Advised to take first class travel (less people= better views) for this 2 hour journey... $70!
Speed trains are a very popular way to travel in China nowadays, but were not so popular 7 years ago when they first came to China. Arrived at the biggest train station I have ever been in, very spacious and organized.
Inside the train car looks like a Jetsons space mobile, only 5 seats, fully reclining, so far I have been offered a bottle of water, a box of cookies, a blanket and slippers!
The train has a few stops which is good as the train goes slow enough for me to capture some photos.
Will be in Shanghi for 4 days and excited to see their French and Jewish quarters. Also planning to do some Airbnb excursions which will include a dumpling making class and a Tai Chi class with a master!
