[Travel] The Fantastic Family Vacation on Spring Season at Beijing, Hangzhou & Shanghai, China in April 2014! @Day 5

by - Friday, August 08, 2014

This morning I really wake up so early because I have to take breakfast at hotel before go to station terminal train bullet. Actually, our tour guide though that our departure time from Beijing to Hangzhou by train bullet on 8.25 am but actual time is 7.25 am. 

We are so rushing to go the station terminal bullet train. As you know, when take train bullet we can’t late to get in the train because this train always be on time. If we miss our train, that mean we have to buy another tickets of another time on the same day. That why, need be careful when take train bullet.

In China already have bullet train and magnet train; which is to show to the world, China almost close to other advanced technology country. Even in Malaysia still not have bullet train and magnet train, but I hope in Malaysia will have this too soon.

Actually, Shanghai Maglev Train or Shanghai Transrapid (Magnet Train) is a magnetic levitation train, or maglev line that operates in Shanghai, China. It is the first commercially operated high-speed magnetic levitation line in the world and only the third Maglev line to be operated. The train line was designed to connect Shanghai Pudong International Airport and the outskirts of central Pudong where passengers could interchange to the Shanghai Metro to continue their trip to the city center.

High-speed rail (HSR) (Bullet Train) in China may refer to any commercial train service in China with an average speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) or higher. By that measure, China has the world's longest HSR network with over 11,028 km (6,852 mi) of track in service as of December 2013, including the world's longest line, the 2,298 km (1,428 mi) Beijing–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway.

Since high-speed rail service in China was introduced on April 18, 2007, daily ridership has grown from 237,000 in 2007 to 1.33 million in 2012, making the Chinese high-speed rail network the most heavily used in the world. China's high-speed rail network consists of upgraded conventional railways, newly built high-speed passenger designated lines (PDLs), and the world's first high-speed commercial magnetic levitation (maglev) line. Nearly all high-speed rail lines and rolling stock are owned and operated by the China Railway Corporation, the national railway operator formerly known as the Railway Ministry. The Shanghai Maglev Train is owned and operated by Shanghai's city government.

Now, China almost like Japan and Korea in advanced of technology. That what, I can see during my holiday at China. Even in bullet train, the seating almost like in plane for me. Hihihi~

The journey from Beijing to Hangzhou takes time almost 5 hours 40 minutes. After arrive at Hangzhou, China, we meet other tour guide and this time he will guide us for Hangzhou and Shanghai, China.

Now our journey starts at Hangzhou, China.

Since, we were arriving at Hangzhou on afternoon so we take lunch before start our tour. Then we straight go to West Lake Cruise, West Lake New World and Flower Harbour. These places almost like big garden that have beautiful natural sceneries and variety of flowers.

We have fun ride West Lake Boat for enjoy the fascinating sceneries around the lake and visit the scenic Flower Harbour Fish Viewing. This time, we so relax during tour at Hangzhou because we don’t have so many schedules.

We take dinner before check in another hotel at Hangzhou, China. We were stay at Yonghui International Hotel for 1 night only. Next day, we go to Shanghai, China.

I just curious why I can’t connect to my Facebook and twitter since I stay at China; I just can open Instagram only or checking my email. Now, I know China government already block the Facebook and Twitter.
