This train station is the newest one in the Shanghai Metro. Easy to transfer to Pudong Airport via Bus from the train station. Only qualm I have is that if you are a foreigner you can only pick up the ticket at the ticket counter and usually long lines. This has nothing to do with the station but it is... More

Its a train station, so you can only expect so much. The concourse when you pull up is noisy and can feel quite daunting, but ive never felt threatened at all. As a Western face, you do get looked at quite a bit, but just smile, or dont look. Plenty of "restaurants" to use if required. Departures are swift, and... More

Economical way to travel. This train station is huge. Security check in place, bags will be scanned before entering. Many shops around, one can easily find some food there while waiting for the train. Highly recommended to buy ticket a day or two before the travel date. Will need to produce passport (for security purposes) when purchasing ticket and during... More

This station is the home of the bullet train which can get you from Shanghai to Beijing in under 6 hrs, faster than a plane. It's modern, efficient, less prone to delays and connected to the metro stations at each stop. Food choices are limited, so bring your own. Convention seems to be extra large suitcases reside in the aisle... More

I do like the organization, how the system works on the station, although people didn't speak English I made myself understood. Very clean and modern, highly secure I found. There was no English on the departures/ arrivals boards, but I think things could be figured out. Also showing your ticket says what you want to know. I don't speak Chinese... More

This Railway station is actually nicer than the Pudong Airport. Excellent Metro connectivity. China's high speed trains are the best

Very convenient, and located at the side of Hogqiao Airport, with easy access by subway. However, if you need to be there for a long time the seats are very limited, station is always overocupied, not really comfortable to be there for long time.
