Clean, airy, well organised. Obviously train travellers are well cared for and all very organised in China. Trains are easy to find, queues run smoothly and the trains themselves are very clean, smooth and on time!! All went very smoothly for our fast train trip to Hangzhou.

This place was well organised, it's easy to find taxi, Metro (Lines 2 & 10) and you are connected directly to Hongqiao Airport. To get to the international Airport Pudong takes only short time if taking bus or Metro Check the last train times (around 11pm or so.)

I will say its very well maintained with so much crowd travelling from here everyday. The train connectivity is very good. Navigating through station is very easy. Buying ticket and catching train is very easy and convenient. Food court is of OK size. Waiting area is sufficient. Only drawback is that it is in one end of city.

This is a huge station with most of express trains departing from here. Directly connected to Hongqiao airport. Beware that if you arrive you need to know you exit where. Taxi pick up can be a mess. Metro lines 2 and 10 are available but cease operation around 11pm or so.

We arrived on the High-Speed train from Beijing. The signboards and directions are clear and straight forward in Chinese & English. Clean and bright station. The taxi line was orderly and although the line was long it was constantly moving. There were some 'taxi touts' standing alongside selling their services & trying to convince locals and tourists alike not to... More

It is easy to get to via taxi or subway and VERY large. Going through security can be tricky as people are in a hurry and push in front plus you have to watch your bags. Mine went through x-ray and the person in front grabbed it, could have been just to move it out of their way but need... More

Okay make sure you arrive at least an hour before your trip to purchase tickets and get a sense for the environment. The morning rush can be overwhelming if using for the first time. The train station is very organized but there is a lot of people buying tickets so be prepared to wait. The trains are clean and on... More

Despite its scale, it's easy in, easy out. Not sure what else to say about a train station. Impressive architecture, clean. Very modern.
