China Railway High-speed: Shanghai – Beijing

The food on this train is not the best that China can offer, but if you’ve booked a first-class ticket, you can count on a TV in your cart. Shanghai’s railway station is situated in a former airport terminal and can receive thousands of passengers, which is one of its biggest advantages.

TGV: Paris Marseilles
This French high-speed train has the most beautiful stations and the most comfortable seats, at least the first class. However, you won’t be impressed by the food. It is better to eat at some of the many station restaurants.
