Shanghai Maglev Announcement

Listen to a short clip of the Shanghai Airport maglev train announcement.

Maglev train, Shanghai.

Maglev train leaving Pudong International Airport, Shanghai

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.

March, 2008.
