Getting around China

instilledwithin

Transportation in China has changed unimaginably over my lifetime. There was a time when bicycles ruled the roads, when you caught a smoke filled overnight sleeper train to travel between Shanghai and Beijing, when the ground at train stations was covered in peanut wheels and sunflower seed husks. No more. These sights are a barometer of China’s modernisation, relics of yesteryear remain whilst subways, bullet trains, personal cars, cabs and airports take over the landscape.

Shanghai-Beijing takes 5 hours at 300km/hr and above, Shanghai has a magnetic train, taxis cost nothing, subways are everywhere and come every second minute. Getting around China isn’t hard.
