A glimpse into the cabin of a Kunming–Shanghai high-speed train
Two high-speed trains have arrived in Kunming.

The high-speed train route linking Shanghai and Kunming, which runs at the speed of 350 kilometers per hour, arrived for the first time in Kunming, Yunnan province on May 21. The high-tech facilities and comfortable cabins have already drawn praise from passengers.

In the business cabin of the train, seats can be laid flat for sleep. A tray and a lamp can be accessed in one armrest of the seat, and a screen playing TV programs is available in the other. Passengers are also able to charge their phones and laptops.

There are four seats in every row in the first-class cabin. Neck pillow can be found on the backs of each velveteen seat. In addition, extra leg space and an adjustable footrest make for a more comfortable trip.

In second-class cabins, five seats are distributed on either side of the aisle. The seats are wider than those in a Boeing 737. Passengers can put their luggage on the rack above their heads. Tray tables are available on the backs of each seat.

The train also features second-class seats and accessible toilets for passengers in wheelchairs; the toilets can also be used as baby care facilities.

Except for those in the business cabin, all seats can be rotated to face forward, no matter the direction of the train.

The train features 556 seats in total, which includes 10 business seats, 28 first-class seats and 518 second-class seats.
