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.

It is a big facility. Like an airport. Convenient, -- tube station -- next to airport -- a lot of food restaurants -- easy to find a taxi If it compares to old Shanghai train station, this is surly a "modern" one.

We took the bullet train to Beijing and back. This place is very complex, efficient and impressive. However, it is HUGE and it can be difficult to find your way to the right gate and right platform because instructions in English cannot be found anywhere !! So make sure you give yourself enough time to figure things out, especially WHERE... More

Airport, train station, taxi stands, subway, and bus station all connected in one easily maneuverable, monstrous complex. Very impressive. Plenty of signage to guide you through. I use it often.

Huge transit center so leave plenty of time to pass thru security and find your gate. Boarding usually begins 15 minutes before departure. Easy to get to via the subway from the downtown hotel district.

We went to Wuxi by train and we took the rapid train at the Shanghai Hongquiao Station. Important...need to bring your passport (copy) with you when planning to travel on Shanghai's trains.

You can basically get to anywhere on the bullet trains. Most of the times, the staff has little or no knowledge on english so if you have a chinese friend or someone who speaks the language, take them with you!

I really enjoyed using the Shanghai Metro. It is clean and very efficient. The stations were very well ventilated considering the outdoor temperature was about 41 C! Great for people watching if nothing else!
