Made with the help of cutting edge European technology, the Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) Train is the new state-of-art mode of transportation in Shanghai. Using no wheels, the train floats on an electromagnetic cushion, propelled along a guideway at incredible speeds. Meandering for 20 miles from Long Yang Lu Station to Pudong International Airport, and built with a budget of more than US$1 billion, the train can reach a speed of 267mph—the highest ever for any operational transport on the ground. Your tour starts with a ride from the pier to the Long Yang Lu Station at Pudong New District. Then board the Maglev Train for an eight-minute ride to Pudong Airport and experience the sensation of almost flying as the train accelerates to maximum speed in no time. Pause for a short while before the train brings you back to Long Yang Lu Station on the return ride. Board your motor coach again and visit the Lujiazui area of the Pudong New District. Developed only a decade ago from farmlands, this area is now the financial center of China with numerous high-rise office buildings. Continue with a visit to the futuristic Jinmao Hyatt Building—an 88 storey skyscraper in Shanghai. From its lofty heights, you will take in the panoramic view of Shanghai. Return to the ship by motor coach.
