The station is huuuuuge, unbelievably large scale. The things are well managed though seem chaotic. There are boards to display information in English. Have almost all fast food chains inside the station. If catching a bullet, would be good to be inside the station at least an hour in advance- to find your way through the humongous place and thousands... More

The railway station feels like a mass exodus from Shanghai. We were with Chinese friends who were able to help us purchase tickets (it would have taken considerably longer otherwise!). When travelling within China you must register your passport details online or at the ticket office - and will need to present your passport if collecting tickets and/or to get... More

This is an impressive facility that provides well-oiled fast train transport in and out of Shanghai. It is designed to keep crowds of people moving with many opportunities to eat and drink along the way. A floor for arrivals and a floor for departures makes it easy to navigate. Directional signs are in both Chinese and English to assist travelers... More

A very well organised Railway station. Usually very busy in July because of school vacations from 1st of July to 1st of September every year. Book before you travel so you don't have to buy tickets at the station. The Station employees do not speak english. The high speed trains have 3 classes of seating, Economy, First Class and Business... More

Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is a huge modern station. Trains are excellent, clean, comfortable, and can often be a much better option than going by airplane. Trains are exactly on time and get to their destination exactly on time. The airport, by contrast, can be a total nightmare, with almost all domestic flights delayed by several hours. I flew from...

Since Hangqiao Railway station is right next to the Hangqiao International Airport, I almost felt I am at the airport instead of a Railway station. it was simply unbelievable to have seen this station train station. Everything was very similar to being on an airport. If you get down from a high speed train(bullet train) at this station, you would... More

While this is a physically appealing building, knowing where to queue up in this busy station to purchase tickets is extremely difficult, even for the locals. A German traveler we met, who had the benefit of a Chinese interpreter, was redirected to three different lengthy lines in order to purchase tickets. Advice: Arrive early, leaving time to sort through the... More

Difficult to believe as train station as almost trains (G) arrive here and it is fully equipped with many eateries and shopping area. all signs are in English too so one can easily find the way. Some time becomes too crowded near entry gates.

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.
