I like China’s subway stations with their protective sliding doors to keep the patrons away from the track. We don’t have that in Montreal, Canada, a woman fell in between the metro car gaps while texting and not paying attention to where she was walking and died

Things sure have progressed. . back in 2006 I first visited China and took the only train on that exact same route from Shenzhen to Guilin. Was at least 18 hours long overnight ride. I was super lucky in that my cabin just happened to be shared with a girl who was a professional english/chinese translator traveling with her Mom. I tagged along with them and it made my first trip in mainland CHina amazing!
trains are pretty awesome in china

I’ve only ridden the high-speed rail in China between Guangzhou and Shenzhen, so it didn’t go as fast…perhaps only 155kph. Still it was quite nice. I did occasionally have issues with people taking my seat, but as soon as I showed them my ticket, it was easy enough to reclaim it. I’m not sure if it was funny or not, but I found it kind of funny with the 1960’s like stewardesses that come by occasionally offering coffee or Nai Cha, but you can tell their heart really isn’t in it. Good stuff, mate.
Great educational video!
I’ve had a few chances to ride the HSR in China including major lines like SH-BJ and BJ-GZ. This has to be the best thing that happened in China when it comes to transport. It’s just out of this world: the trains, the stations, the infrastructure. Lots of money (we’re talking trillions of USD here… yes trillions) poured in but boy do they get what they paid for.
P.S. Shenzhen North has to be the most aesthetically pleasing railway station I’ve ever seen. A masterpiece.
Why are New Yorks Train stations so backwards compared to shens and other chinese cities. Ours looks like an abandoned fallout shelter filled with garbage and urine scattered around and theres no protective glass either. SMH

Nice coverage ! Here Indian Railways operates trains up to 150 Km/hr ( 93.2 miles per hour ) . May be after some years we might as well see high speed railways ( 300+ Km/hr )

Why doesn’t the US/Canada Gov’t implement this on the westcoast
Worst thing about trains in China are the noodle boxes everyone unpacks and fill with hot water and then carry around as soon as the train starts moving.
I loved my trip from Shenzhen to Changsha….CRH is very quick and convenient. The hot water dispensers on board for tea are a nice touch as well.
The underground trains in Suzhou is also very good and clean. we used it alot. Cheap, on time, good 🙂

Hi Winston I have used CRH many times when I’ve been to Shanghai to visit Hangzhou and Ningbo. On the Buses I took a 6 hour trip from Shanghai to Wuai An.
Chinese rail lines suck, they can never beat Japan in safety, comfort, convenience, and cost, and environmental impact.
Serious question. Why does it seem like Chinese people are always yelling at each other?
