Hi Travel Buddies,
The Shanghai to Beijing high-speed train is slated to start service next Friday.
Train tickets will cost from 555 yuan (SGD106) and 935 yuan, with premium tickets at 1,750 yuan for services running 300 kilometres per hour (kph). At 300 kph, the 1,318 km rail trip is estimated to take about 4 hours and 48 minutes from Beijing to Shanghai.
Excellent travel alternative to budget travellers who do not mind a slightly longer travelling time as compared to taking a domestic flight which will take about 2 hours from Beijing to Shanghai. 🙂
