There are places to eat and even s supermarket in the complex. A small section of... More

This gigantic trainstation is ,as most things in Shanghai, worldclass. At least when it comes to technolgy and hygiene. Too bad the entire train station is underground and there is not a singel beam of sunlight coming in, even the entrences to the taxi stand are underground. Giving this collosos an unpleasent bunker-like feel.

Efficient, clean & trains punctual you'll also be given a bottle of water for your journey (our guide had to ask though). A lot of security, and it's massive you could easily get lost.

Hongqiao Railway Station links Shanghai and Beijing with the high speed train. The station itself is very easy to get to, we took a cab, however, it was accessible by metro as well. Once there, you'll first notice it's sheer size, seems surreal to be honest. At each of the four corners there are dining/coffee areas on the second level.... More

This may be the largest inter-model transportation hub I have ever seen. It is huge and complicated. I was able to follow the instructions and found my way around. The signage could be a bit more to direct the passengers. Allow yourself 30 minutes minimum to find your way, you will be fine. But it is a different story if... More

We went by taxi to the station, had a quick lunch at Burger King and found our train easily. This is a very clear, well organized railway station. Not the most beautiful, but very efficient!

We took a daytrip from Shanghai to Hangzhou. Thank goodness my daughter knew a little Chinese, because the person at the ticket window didn't speak any English. Make sure you have your passport, or they won't issue you a ticket. The waiting area was very nice -- crowded, but we found seats. There are plenty of places to purchase drinks... More

This is one of the more impressive train station I have been to. Very big but it works. The waiting "room" is impressive, especially when viewed from the second level / restaurants are located here.
