Modern Railway Station

If you remember Chinese railway stations 10 - 15 years ago, this is totally opposite of that imagination

Very packed and very disorganised. People are not helpful especially when you do not understand the language.

One of the main railway stations in Shanghai. We get there directly from metro. There's also free wifi at the waiting area.

As an American, I am embarassed. This modern railway station is better than any in the U.S. and better run, more accessible and ammenable than any airport in the U.S. Train travel is a delight in China. If taking the fast train, it leaves on time and your board with enough time to find your seat and get comfortable. Have... More

I like this station a lot 'cause it's so neat and well connected with airport and metro and express train (staring G). It can easily take you to neighboring cities around Shanghai in 1-2 hours and immerse you in very different local culture and cuisine. You can also go to city center in 30-45 min via metro 2 (People's Square... More

Once you figure out how to navigate buying tickets and not getting in the ticket que to buy tickets (hotel concierge, buy on line and pick up at pick up window) Hongqiao Railway Station is terrific. Direct access from the subway and next to Hongqiao Airport with food, snacks and coffee shops at the station. I lived in the French... More

Nice train station. Crowds a bit difficult. Used this one to go to Beijing and then return from Hangzhou.

My train stopped here and I got off, pretty cool. The lines are long and there is usually only one (barely) english speaking counter at which to buy your tickets but besides that its a train station.

I traveled through Hongqiao Railway and Airport many times during the three years I lived in Hongqiao (near Hongmei Lu). Super convenient for either business or personal travel. I'd encourage taking the metro to/from the rail station, as taxi's (especially when departing the station) can be problematic and you may end up waiting hours if you arrive w/ throngs of... More

Staying in Jing'an

Neighborhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
