China’s high speed “bullet” train, which recently broke the world speed record, has just begun service from Shanghai to Hanzhou. The new route brings the length of China’s high-speed railways in operation to 7,431 kilometers, which is the longest in the world. A ticket for a first-class seat on the new Shanghai-Hangzhou express train costs 131 yuan ($19.3), while a second-class ticket is 82 yuan ($12).
