Time for Physic 101, did anyone know how fast an average bullet speed? Conventionally, a bullet travels at the speed of 370 m/s or 1332 km/h. In other words, it travels at Mach 1 or better known as supersonic speed. If you have studied at one of the online colleges for math you already knew this.
Due to the high velocity and momentum when it fires, bullet is recognized as deadly as it can penetrate through almost any medium known to man.
Bullet train is otherwise. It travels at the speed of approximately 350 km/h. Eh.. if you look at the speed, it is no way close to bullet speed but why it is called bullet train?
Must be some glitch in dictionary as it is only considered F1 train to me.. yea, it is close to F1 speed. Regardless,China just operated the first bullet train ever! It is a great success considering the train is always filled with passengers.
The train itself is fairly new, it is separated to super VIP, VIP and normal class. Generally it is distinguished by the seat size. So if you are super fit, I mean fat, don’t doubt but go for super VIP.
One thing I find it unsafe. The comfy seats are without seat belts. Imagine an emergency stop occurs when it travels at the speed of 350 km/hr. Gosh, I can’t even imagine that.
If you survived the journey of approx 1 hour fromHangzhoutoShanghai, you will be greeted with the tunnel of light. Like many said, don’t walk towards the light but there is an exception.
Ohh before you alight the train, make sure you wear your thick winter jacket as I nearly catch cold even though I have safety fat factor. The journey was rather relaxing except some dudes beside me were enjoying stinky beancurds!
As soon as you managed to find your way out from the station, you are now arrived in Shanghai Hong Jiau Train Station. Over here, you can start to sense some degree of civilization.
If you are not in rush, you can either choose to shop around this area or get to subway straight away to your next destination. I must say, it is quite an experience to travel in F1 speed for almost 1 hour
