Caught the high speed train from Shanghai to Beijing. Booked tickets online thru China Highlights which were very good and left tickets with our concierge at the hotel. Processing at train station very easy, it was well signed and clean. Great way to see more of China.

Very impressive building and services, trains on time ! This train station looks and feels like an airport. Only point is that if you did not book your ticket earlier, (which is difficult from abroad) make sure you arrive early enough as the queues at the counters can take half an hour. Try the business class if you can, it's... More

Very new train station that blows away the beaten up old main station. Nice new facilities, excellent selection of food and even some shopping available for last minute gifts. Downside, VERY far from downtown, The Bund, etc., and even farther to Pudong Business area and Pudong Airport. Consequently, expensive taxi ride to any part of the city. There is a... More

BUSY - BUSY - BUSY but very efficient. With the thousands of people that pass through daily it is amazingly clean and can process them quickly. The security scans the bags and the passenger quickly. Lots of excellent food stands throughout.

Once you get off the metro, walk up the stairs, follow the signs and reach the entrance to the railway station. Once you enter the railway station walk 100ft to 150ft or so and to... More

Coming in from Yichang late evening to a huge, but clean train station was nice but that's were the fun ended. Taxi line was routed outside underneath in a tunnel. After 50 minutes of masses of people smoking, pushing, taxi's honking and exhaust fumes we felt lightheaded and slightly sick.
