If you are taking a train then go here. If you are flying go to the airport. Follow the signs and you will get out of town.

This is a big train station about 45 mins from Peoples square, on the suburbs of town. Easy to access on the Metro 2 line. Most things are written in Chinese and English as are most announcements. There are a few ticket counters that agents speak english. Allow a lot of time to get your tickets if you weren't savvy... More

Chinese high speed rail --- extremely fast, reliable, comfortable. And a magnificent train station --- right next to the airport terminal.

It is pretty easy to travel by train from there. Even if you come by plane and you have to go further to Chengdu, it is quite convenient to take the train from there.

A huge railway station situated outside Shanghai centre. Huge numbers of people but departure point easy to locate. Lack of seating areas. Some shops, some coffee stations and 3 eating areas.
