Travel by high speed rail is a delight in China now, the new Euro style trains are clean and comfortable and very fast, 300 km/ hr so places like Hangzhou and Wuxi and Nanjing are less than an hour away. The RR station is adjacent to Hongqiao Airport which is very convenient and both are easy to get to on... More

Fantastik modern transportation architecture. A huge very modern very nice waiting room, with access to all plattforms. You are only let onto the plattform as your train is about to depart. It is a very impressive building. Add to that a very efficient transportation system and you have something for everybody.

HongQiao Station is very convenient to the HongQiao Airport. It's a convenient way to get out of Shanghai for some quick excursions. They don't have a lot of English help though, so the first time or two can take some time to figure out. Go to the central section and there are several windows. The people in the windows are...

Built for the Shanghai World Exhibition, this is a great became of good planning on a vast scale. Very airy and spacious. Easy access. Just like the Airport Terminal next door. Spotlessly clean. Good security.

The station was so big and high security too. We were travelling to Hangzhou on a bullet train and experienced the service there. Lots of food joints and chairs to sit while you are waiting. Very systematic too.

Access to the railway station by road or public transport is easy, sign boards direct you easily to your destination. Ticket reservation system whether online or at site is very comfortable. Despite the huge number of passengers at one time, boarding the trains is designed in an excellent way, much better than any railway station elsewhere . The station also... More

You are spoilt for choice for fast food eateries here esp local noodles shops with fancy trademarks like Bruce Lee etc. There is also the familiar bakery well known to Singaporeans eg BreadTalk. Not surprising curry and nasi Kandar, staple for Malaysian n Singaporean travellers are nowhere found here. As the railway station it is cavernous and efficient. The intercity... More

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
