(ECNS) -- Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk recognized Chinese smart Fuxing bullet trains on Sunday after a short video introducing the train went viral on Twitter, sparking heated discussion about the luxurious, comfortable riding experience.

“Don't take this high-speed train, because you can never imagine how amazing it is to sit inside! ” said a Chinese vlogger with the screen name Yangzhou Joey.

Joey added that when he entered the bright, spacious carriage, he was surprised that it was even more comfortable than first-class airplane seats, because each carriage is equipped not only with slippers, towels, and blankets but also with independent air conditioning.

Additionally, some attendants provide coffee, desserts, and delicious meals along the way and helped carry luggage.

"The seats can be adjusted for angles, making it convenient for leaning or lying down. There are phone charging ports and it also supports wirelessly charging. The screen in front of the seat even allows wireless mirroring and the details are also fantastic. There are foldable dining tables, reading lights, and makeup mirrors,” Joey said.

This video has attracted a large number of thumbs up and comments on Twitter.

“True,” Elon Musk commented on the video.

In the video, Joey rode the G34 smart Fuxing bullet train from Hangzhou to Beijing. The journey takes 4 hours and 40 minutes with a maximum speed of 350 km/h.

In the video, Joey traveled in the business seat, which costs 2,235 yuan($323.67) per person, while the first-class seat costs 1,050 yuan per person, and the second-class seat costs 650 yuan per person.

The G34 is China's Fuxing bullet train with "smarter" facilities, which began operation on June 25, 2021, running through 18 provincial-level administrative regions in China.

It is the upgraded version of the smart Fuxing bullet trains that first operated on the Beijing-Zhangjiakou high-speed railway line in December 2019.

Now, there are two types of formations in service. One has standard eight carriages with 578 seats and the other is extra-long with 17 carriages and 1,285 seats.
