A must do when you visit Shanghai is ride on the bullet train. It sits on 300kmh and my empty coffee cup sat on the window sill all the way. Not a bump. The station is big and easy to find your gate. More expensive than flying, but worth the experience. Also hooks up with local metro.

Adjacent to Hongqiao Airport, it is convenient to take the fast train to nearby Hangzhou. Lots of merchandise shops around for last minute shopping.

Very well connected with Hongqiao Airport, Subway and with city, mainly for those in the Puxi Area. Also this train station has several options for long distance trains in China.

What can one say... This place is amazing... It is total controlled chaos. I prefer traveling by high speed train and the transportation system in China is becoming the worlds standard. The signage is clear and getting to the gate is no issue. One caveat: Get there early because the thousands of people are sure to be there.

The best Railway station in the world, so organized and everything is well thought of so that the hundreds of thousands of travelers can make their journey with ease.Connected to Hongqiao airport and the local Metro. You can make it to any part of Shanghai, China or the world very easily from here.

Very clean and efficient set up. They even have a Xing ba ke (look it up). It did help that my daughter speaks Mandarin when we picked up our tickets. If you do not, it would be better to have your tickets delivered to your hotel. Easy to navigate and very organized. LOVE the fact the train attendants are dressed... More

Very big place, from there you can get the bullet train to go to Suzhou -the Chinese Venice-, which is a beautiful city to visit. It's a clean and modern station, but if you are not travelling by train, don't bother going there.

Well indicated, massive and clean. runs as you will expect and better, easy to get to as well. China can be a very confusing place but they have some stuff, like their public transport stations to high standards...

This building is huge inside! Nothing much to see here: a decent amount of shops but nothing special except for the size of the main hall! This is huge...no columns in the middle to support, so you really feel how tiny you are in this one big room! Impressive...
