What a surprise, the sheer size of it, so modern, and efficient. I was pleasantly surprised, and wished managers of Union station in DC, or Penn in NYC would have a look at this station.

I used this station for travelling to Danyang after landing in Hongqiao airport. I could pull out some Yoans from the ATM before going directly to the tickets counters which are about 500 meters walking within the facility from the airport arrivals hall. This is not only a railway station but a large size shopping mall incorporating fashion and other... More

The station is quite big, make me feels like I'm in an airport.. haha It is equipped with modern technology and modern convenience... We were here to board the bullet train to Beijing, and it's easy to navigate ourselves here... There's some shops around the boarding gate so you can buy things you need before boarding the train... If you... More

For a Chinese train station , this is a really good one: nice, clean, all facilities, helpful staff, no way you get lost...just remember this station only handles High Speed Trains and not the overnight trains. We came with a G-train (high speed) and returned with a T-train which leaves from the Shanghai Railway Station. We didn't know there was... More

I live in Hongqiao and use the Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station a fair amount for travelling in China. The Station is next to the recently (2012) expanded Terminal 2 of the Honqiao International Airport which should make it convenient, but it is not. The Train Station Terminal is highly functional and build in modern steel and marble design. There is... More

The Hongqiao Railway station is located quite conveniently if you visit it via metro line 2 or 10, takes only about 35 min from the city center. The station is quite huge and is located directly adjacent to the Hongqiao airport so its convenient to switch from plane to train. The are some fast food style restaurants at the station... More

First time taking the bullet train. Went on a day trip with a friend and it was both of ours first trip on the train and the station. Wow, this place was huge! I was expecting a much smaller place. We bought our tickets, the wrong ones, but we got the tickets and realized we had the wrong one. The... More

This train station is just massive, and unlike any station in Europe! The station works like an airport with security checks when you enter and departures arranged in numbered gates. Departing is very easy, even if you don't speak Chinese. Arriving on the other hand is not! There is a platform for getting a taxi but it's always very crowded.... More

Build for the EXPO 2010 this new railway station is so huge that you can easily get lost even after having traveled through there for several time. The Waiting Hall, in front of all the gates to the tracks, is just something!

The easiest way to navigate in most major Chinees train stations is think like you are in an airport. The ticketing and departures are always the upper levels and the arrivals will be on the lower levels. Hongqiao is no different. The metro line 2 (green line) runs on the lowest level. Next level up (level 1) is the exit... More
