I'm Flying Without Wings

9 February 2011

Literally, I am actually "flying", without wings. The similarities between the high speed rail from Kaohshiung to Taipei, and aircraft, are just way too many. They both have:

  • an in-flight/train magazine
  • a traytable
  • a food/beverage cart, and an attendant
  • overhead baggage
  • seats that recline annoyingly
  • arrival music when you reach your destination
  • business class

High Speed Rail

They travel at 300 km/h, but it didn't really feel like it - just, kind of like a plane that kept accelerating slowly, never taking off...

Attendant

Oh yeah - turns out there's also a Playstation 3 game featuring this very railway I just took. Awesome.
