Wow, this would be cool if it took 2 hours to get to Beijing from NY or the US. Check out this crazy article for tube travel in the near future. I would go to China a lot more if it only took 2 hours. I am still amazed it only takes 12 hours to get to Shanghai from LA and your half way around the world. The 12 hour flight is not back when you take it 1-2 times each year and plan for the long flight. My schedule for 12 hours, first 1.5 hours first drinks and food service, then movie time 2 hours, then sleep time 4 hours, then exercise and snacks with lots of water 1 hour, then movie time or sleep for 2 hours and finally 1.5 hours for final drinks, food service, customs forms and the excitement of arriving in China.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
