In Shanghai, China, you are able to travel to your destination at top-notch speeds. This train is called the Maglev Train (which is short for Magnetic Levitation) and it is far from any train you are used to. This train is literally levitating while in use! It uses magnetic repulsion to stay above the track by just a few inches. It covers 30km in just minutes and reaches speeds of up to 431 km per hour! It sounds like you shouldn’t be standing while this beast is in motion.

Up next is a pretty scenic way of getting around by water.
