Convenient from the airport terminal. If you want to catch the fast train, check the schedules as they do not run to full speed all the time. Trip is fast. Not much scenery. As others have reported, be careful of taxi scammers who will charge you up to 10x more than the actual trip cost. If the driver does not... More

Train is alright as it touches high speeds and gets you in city real quick. That is when your nightmares start. You are immediately surrounded by local vendors and cab drivers who do not speak English and fight with each other to get you in the cab. For me, it got really ugly when a cab driver started to hit... More

I didn't go into the museum but did use the train. This train is a must if you are arriving at Pudong airport, and want to get into Shanghai quickly - and I mean quickly. The fare is 50 RMB single, (approx £5) compared with a 4RMB metro fare. The journey takes about 7 minutes and you reach speeds in... More

I didn't get a chance to slip into the Maglev Museum but did take the train to the airport. The station is a pain to get to (on the Pudong side of the city) and is the reason ridership is quite sparse - often comprised mainly of tour groups who wish to experience the train ride. The train departs every... More

I didn't see the museum but took a maglev ride which is the fastest train in the world as of October 2014. The ride itself is rather uneventful: it lasts 7 min in one direction (15-20 min round-trip) and costs 80 Yuan, but you can tell everyone that you did it :-). Check out their web site as the train...

Quite a simple but interesting exposition. You can visit it if you have 10-15 free minutes before your flight. If you don't have time, don't worry ))

Can't describe the rush of travelling at 431 kmph. Its super amazing when a train from the opposite direction passes by, causes a small explosion like thing. You got to take it if you visit Shanghai.

The Maglev is very fast but unless that alone is enough to interest you it feels like a brief trip in a dowdy suburban train. Be wary of taxi touts at the station. A fare from there to a French Concession hotel is about 40 yuan but one tied to sell it to us for the cheap no meter price... More

It was interesting to read of the progress throughout the world of the Maglev and predecessors but that was it.

We travelled by the Maglev train on our way back to the airport. It is indeed a stunning experience to travel at 430km/ hour. The train journey is for 7 mins and cost 50 RMB per person - one way. There is a train every 15 mins. It does not operate late at night. It is ideal to take the... More
