Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Train All Set to Open

The new high-speed train service between Beijing and Shanghai is all set to open on July 1.

 

The new high-speed train rail link travels at a speed of 300-kilometres per hour, cutting the trip between Beijing and Shanghai to just 4 hours and 45 minutes. According to a report in e-Global Travel Media, there will be 90 trains, carrying 1004 passengers each, operating daily.  The trains will feature business class, first class and second class seating.

 

The new high-speed trains will give a less expensive alternative to taking a flight and provide tourists greater flexibility in their travel schedules.
