All aboard: Hong Kong bullet train signals high-speed integration with ChinaWhile the $11 billion rail project has raised fears for some over Beijing's encroachment on the Chinese-ruled city's cherished freedoms, passengers at the sleek harbourfront station were full of praise for a service that reaches mainland China in less than 20 minutes. "Out of 10 points, I give it nine," said 10-year-old Ng Kwan-lap, who was traveling with his parents on the first train leaving for Shenzhen at 7 a.m. "The train is great. It's very smooth when it hits speeds of 200 kilometers per hour." Mainland Chinese immigration officers are stationed in one part of the modernist station that is subject to Chinese law, an unprecedented move that some critics say further erodes the city's autonomy.
