Listen to a short clip of the Shanghai airport maglev train announcement.
Having just arrived in Shanghai, we board the airport maglev train.
The train hits a top speed of 431 km/hour on the short journey to a subway stop closer to the center of the city. The 30 km trip takes but 8 minutes.
The announcement begins in Chinese and then switches into English with a dulcet "Dear Passengers."
The woman's voice is soft and silky, with a pleasing accent.
