Posted: March 13, 2014  By: SplendidChinaTours.Com

Shanghai's spicy food lovers can celebrate as the Shanghai-Chengdu high-speed rail line opens three months early, cutting travel time between the cities from 30 to 10 hours

China's plan to connect its major cities with high-speed trains is gaining pace with the Shanghai-Chengdu line.

If you prefer the view of China from a train car over one from an airplane cabin, then start booking your tickets for the Shanghai-Chengdu high-speed train that will be up and running by the end of the month.

The train will transport passengers the 2,078 kilometers between the two cities in 10 hours, averaging around 200 kilometers per hour. The current train connecting Shanghai and Chengdu takes 30 hours.

Opening three months ahead of schedule, the train travels from Shanghai to Chengdu, Sichuan Province via Wuhan, Chongqing and Nanjing on one part of a grid of high-speed train lines that is planned to crisscross the entire country, according to an article post on Sina.com, one of China's largest news portals.

Times and fares have yet to be announced, but suddenly hopping to Chengdu to pet a panda or to partake in its now UNESCO-accredited cuisine doesn't seem like the worst weekend plan.
