Train station, but it's bigger than many airports. Security control to get in. Crowded. Noisy. If you have to wait longer then half an hour you will have headache.

Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is a HUGE building connecting the local trains station. You can connect to trains going to almost anywhere in China at high speed. There are plenty of places to eat at the terminal and you must go thru an easy security where they just x-ray your bag(s) and a simple metal detector. You do not need... More

This railway station is adjacent to the airport. It is a giant railway station but it feels very spacious and well organized. The Chinese know how to do railway right and it is easy to find your track. There are many places to shop and eat but many are upstairs and it is unclear how to get upstairs as the... More

The Chinese rail system, especially all the G Trains (fast ones) are fantastic and Hongqiao is a very good hub. In the height of the summer, air conditioning is awful but other than that - really good! Hongqiao from what I've seen is certainly one of the very best stations on their network. Ticket collection / ordering especially for a... More

just have to see to believe the 35 platforms - its shiny expanse of floors and 1000s of people its not far from the city by taxi and a great way to catch the fast train to Hongzhou - just 45 mins away Dont get it confused with the airport nearby !!
