The train is fast, so fortunately you don't have to be there long. However the restrooms at the station are squatty potties, and when flushing the restroom on the train (yep, squatty potties even in first class) you actually see train tracks below. At 300 mph. First class was sparse, but thankfully cheap. Our family of four adults cost $500... More

Very impressive building. Layout is spacious so doesn't feel crowded even during morning rush hour and train being full. Excellent system of regulating the entry of passengers onto the platform 15 minutes before departure of the train. So everyone gets to wait in the spacious station hall. Good clear sign ages.

If you are travelling by train make sure you give yourself plenty of time.The queues are long but it is very efficiently run.Not many people speak English so you need to be well prepared.

The Hongqiao railway station is quiet amazing. When you walk in, you`ll fell like you entered an airport. Thousands of people, all races rushing in one direction or another. And of course, there are more than enough shops and restaurants there. To summarize it - Hongqiao feels like the future. :)

I came in here on the bullet train from Beijing and the taxi queue at the South was ridiculously long. However don't bout off because it only took ten minutes as there is a constant stream of taxis coming through to pick up new fares.

As an international crew member for an airline I was pleasantly surprised by this experience. If you purchase the tickets in person you will need cash and your passport. We paid $290 (1748 yuan) for Business Class and it was worth every penny. They provide a meal, blanket, slippers, TV, earplugs, eyeshades and earbuds. It took under 5 hours to... More

Taking the High Speed Train G7525 from Shanghai Hongqiao to Hangzhou. The train ride is very smooth and punctual. Inside the train is very clean and nice. The train is usually pack and seldom do have empty seats. They do sell food and drinks inside the train. Toilets are usually clean and sometime dirty depending on the distance but usually... More

We took the bullet train from Shanghai to Hangzhou and it was great. The station is seriously HUGE. Think 3 x airplane hangers. Lots and lots of people, but still very efficient. Easy to navigate about. Just do it
