Makes traveling easy and cheaper than using a taxi

It was easier and cheaper. You feel safer and our hotel was not far from the station. It is aslo quicker to get to your destination. No traffic. Nice and clean.

Large, impressive railway station with plenty of signs in English. As we had bought first class tickets, there was a different waiting area for us, and we were also allowed to board early. There is a smoking room in the station, and quite a few food outlets. Don't use taxi touts to get to or from the station - there... More

We booked first class to Hangzhou - amazing - better than an airplane and so well organised. The train station is great and very clean and plenty of seating.

A must see as it is so big. Enjoyable to people watch. Get a train to anywhere in China here. Even if not traveling by train it is a fun visit.

The trains are the most convenient way to get around in China as they are typically on time unlike in country air travel. Signs are in English and this is a very modern train station with several places to shop. Once through security, look to your right to show your train ticket and receive a free bottle of water (big... More

Sitting on a train going 431 km/p...awesome. It is not really a train, it doesn't have wheels....you are floating some inches above the "track"....then you pass another Maglev train going the opposite direction. The sound, the actual FEEL you get in your chest as the train shudders...Disneyland for adults. I took a video...but will not post it. Just a blur.... More

Very big and easy to get around. Make sure you are clear which gate you arrange to meet at. There is more than one. Escalators for your overweight luggage. That is what I loved the best.

I took the train from Shanghai to Beijing and allowed myself plenty of time to make sure I got my ticket and was able to find where I needed to be. I really gave myself way too much time as it turns out. This facility is very well designed and easy to navigate, and there are lots of options for... More

One hour from dowtown if traffic jam. Booked your taxi from your hotel, you will have one taxi with a meter! A modern station where you can find easily the tickets office and get your tickets when you will show your passeport and printed e-mail.

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.
