美国记者最近搭乘中国高铁后写下这篇报道:去中国感觉穿越到了未来!(2)

The China Railway Corp., the country's government-owned train operator, is getting close to finishing the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, a high-speed rail line spanning more than 80 miles. And the country's plan is to create an extended network that covers 24,000 miles and connects all cities with a population greater than 500,000.

Currently, there are over 100 cities in China with a population greater than 1 million, a figure projected to grow to 221 cities by 2025.

The practical result of this is that you can pretty much travel in anywhere in China via high-speed rail. It's usually comparable in speed to air travel (once you factor in security lines and check-in) and far more convenient, as I found on a recent trip to China.

中国铁路集团,即将完成修建广深港高铁,这条高铁全长超过80英里。中国的计划是,建成全长24000英里的高铁网络,把所有城市连接起来,覆盖人口超过5亿人。

目前,中国有100多座人口超过100万的城市。到2025年,人口超过百万的城市将达到221个。

高铁全部建成后,去中国任何一个地方,你都能乘坐高铁。速度可以和飞机媲美,而且更便捷。这正是我最近去中国后发现的。

I had made plans to travel from Beijing to Xi"an, the capital of northwestern Shaanxi province and the imperial capital of China for centuries.

The distance between the two cities is around 746 miles, making it slightly more than two hours by plane, 11 hours by car, and anywhere between 11.5 hours and 17.5 hours on a regular train.

On China's top-of-the-line "bullet train," the journey takes 4.5 hours.

我从北京去西安,两座城市之间的距离大约是746英里,坐飞机差不多两个来小时,开车要11小时。坐普通火车要11.5小时-17.5小时。

而搭乘中国最先进的高铁,全程只要4.5小时。

If I wanted to travel a comparable distance in the US by train — at 712 miles, New York to Chicago is the closest — it would take 22 hours, with a transfer in Washington, DC. And that"s with traveling on Amtrak's Acela Express, currently the fastest train in the US with a speed up to 214 km/h (150 mph).

Traveling on one of China's fastest bullet trains is an entirely different experience

在美国,相同的距离,比如从纽约到芝加哥是712英里,在华盛顿转车,需要22小时。这坐的还是美国铁路公司的Acela特快。Acela特快是美国目前速度最快的火车,速度最高214公里每小时。

而搭乘中国速度最快高铁,是一个完全不同的体验。
