Very convenient and the trains are many. Remember to bring your legal documents upon purchasing the ticket.

“A horrendous experience ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We were wondering around this enormous concrete box for ages. Despite it being next to the airport (everything in English), nothing was in English. This included the enquiry desk who had no idea what they were doing, so don't bother asking them. Poorly designed, overcrowded.. Don't see how this is so well rated.

“A tourist attraction???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I fail to see how this can be ranked the number one tourist attraction in Shanghai. As a train station it is a very modern one and efficient one. However there are several just like this (nearly carbon copy) all over China (such as Beijing south, Xi'An north, etc.).
It is certainly not worth a trip just to see the station. Better tourist places in Shanghai.

“Most efficient public transport I have ever experienced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I found this a very stress free experience, I hadn't booked a ticket before my trip so was a little nervous but there was no need. The staff were very friendly and tried to help as best they can, i would recommend writing down your train number to give to the ticket office as thier english is very limited but once i had my ticket it was very easy to find my gate and platform. There was a little confusion over my seat (I had the same seat number as someone else) but it was sorted very quickly. The UK could learn a thing or 2 from this station.
