My ride on the Wuguang High-Speed Railway on April 24, 2011, the train was maintaining an average speed of 310 km/hour and it took 3 hours 15 minutes from Wuhan Station to Guangzhou South Station. It maintained the highest speed in the world, at least up until this moment.

Even though the train was moving faster than the airplane with 333 km/hour, I could not feel the speed. It was very quiet and comfortable. The fashionable compartment was so nice and clean. The well dress crew member I met was a very nice looking lady and she could speak very good English. The train ticket from Wuhan to Guangzhou was RMB490.
