  1. Beware the rest of the world, China is coming! Via the high speed train! Making every inch of China accessible is important as it will open up china to the world as well. Planning such an elaborate rail way system takes a lot of town planning and sacrifice has to be made on some building and such. In the name of development, some historical places could be sacrifice, just like how in Singapore.
