Flights schmights, travel the traditional way… by train! Take in the countryside at 300km/h as you whiz through the south of China. It appears that travel options are expanding with the high-speed train from Shanghai to Beijing, set to open in the Summer of 2011, and the Shanghai-Hangzhou route, which just opened yesterday. A high-speed rail link connecting Shanghai and Hong Kong is set to be finished in three to four years. And it’s pretty darn fast: the journey will take roughly three and half hours, compared to the 19 it would take today. Great for all those people who complain you can’t get REAL dim sum up here.
