“Fast & comfortable; service/food was ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I took the business class cabinet from Shanghai to Beijing. It was fast (less than 5 hours), the seat was very comfortable, and the train arrived/departed on time. What prevented it from being a 5 star is the service and food was ok only, especially if you compare to the service provided in Japan's high-speed rail.

“High Speed railway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A great experience even though the ques at the stations and paying process is a bit tedious. Once you get in the train you will enjoy the ride to your destination.

“A great way to visit Beijing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We chose the rail connection from Shanghai to Beijing for a weekend trip. The cost is approximately the same and the advantages are that you can arrive at the station 10 minutes before depatrure, the train station is in the centre of Beijing and that you can get up and walk around any time during the journey

“High Speed -- Regular Customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My work requires me to travel to Nanjing frequently and I take the high speed train from Shanghai a couple times a month. The train is clean, on-time, and easy. I recommend the train for most trips. I have not used it for the Shanghai to Beijing trip but have considered it.

“Another great transport service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The high speed trains are the only way to see China, fast, efficient, clean and easy to organise.
I have used these trains for the past 8 or so years and have had no issues, Just quick to get where you want for a good price.
