I have to agree with almost everyone who has put up a posting here about using the high speed service between Beijing and Shanghai. When you add up the time and expense (and exercises in patience...) of having to fly between both cities, using the train is by far the most economical and most rewarding. The best part for me...

I had to make my way across town to catch a rush hour train from this station. I knew it was big from the pictures and simply looking at the schedules with dozens of trains every hour. I got the hotel concierge to buy my tickets in advance. The guide book advise 35 minutes travel by taxi without traffic so... More

The station was huge and actually looked like any airport. It has a very modern appearance. Upon arrival, we couldn't find a clean toilet/urinal! The ones available were not kept clean.

This is the largest railway station in the whole of Asia, and it certainly isn't disappointing. Signage is in both Mandarin and English, so it is easy to find out what time and the platform from which your train will be departing. There are a wide variety of shops and eateries, including Relay, Disney Store, Starbucks and KFC. Even though... More

Big railway station with connection to the high speed train, the metro and connection to the airport Hongqiao. Lots of small restaurants and shops, you can spend here at least a few hours to look around

Though this station is far from my side of town, I had to venture over to Hongqiao to pick up a friend who was arriving at this station due to his oversight in picking the correct arrival station in Shanghai. Anyway-- the station was very large, big, clean and easy to find the areas where I needed to go to... More

We asked our hotel to get us our train tickets to Hangzhou, 35 minutes away - they didn't charge a fee for this service and the tickets were delivered in less than 24 hours. Clean, non-smoking waiting areas, though most seats were taken when we got there midday. Drinks and some snacks are sold at shops in the train station.... More

An amazing new rail passenger facility easily accessible by bus, taxi or subway from anywhere in Shanghai. Dozens and dozens of shops and restaurants on both levels as you wait for the train. Downside for foreign residents is that we can't use the ticket vending machines, because we must show our passport when purchasing or picking up pre-purchased tickets. Buy... More
