Shanghai Maglev ranks the Maglev as one of the Top Ten things to do in Shanghai. This train, with its magnetic levitation technology (hence maglev), is able to transport passengers 30 km (18.6 miles) to the airport in under eight minutes (7 minutes, 20 seconds to be exact). It's an incredibly smooth ride that's over before you even realize it. The train achieved a top speed of 301 km/hour when I rode it, however, it's able to reach 431 km/hour (268 mph) and does so on various schedules throughout the day.
