China is a pioneer with its ingenious innovation on high-speed train technology. China has built the top 2 fastest train in the world, one in Shanghai between the airport and the city centre and another one in between Wuhan and Guangzhou. The rail network has been able to reach new cities and towns where it has never been before, traveling within China has been more and more convenient (faster) and more eco-friendly.
