“China Highlights - excellent transfer service in Shanghai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We booked a transfer from railway station to hotel and from hotel to airport. The booking service was perfect: after submitting the required information and payment, I’ve received a confirmation letter with our detailed itinerary, as well as very helpful information about Shanghai and some recommendations of attractions, restaurants, shopping, etc. Upon arrival a guide Sara met us at railway station. A very comfortable car was waiting for us. On our way to hotel Sara told us a lot of interesting facts about Shanghai, as well as gave us some extremely useful tips about safety and orientation in the city. In general China Highlights personnel are perfect: they are very friendly and helpful, have excellent command of English, and they treat every client individually. There are no hidden costs, everything is transparent; the agency also takes care of third party advertisement: the guides don’t promote any services and don’t take clients to any unwanted shops, restaurants etc. The price is also very good. I would highly recommend China Highlights for any tourist or business travel arrangements in China, and I will definitely address them myself the next time in China.

“A very impressive station!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We took the high speed train from Shanghai to Beijing, starting from this station. It is absolutely enormous and seems new - a great place to spend some time if you have to wait for public transportation. Much more spacious than an airport, tons of space to sit or walk around, many shops, and many coffee outlets. The train information is provided in English so it was pretty easy to navigate; we had bought tickets in advance so all we had to do was show the tickets to people and they pointed us to the right places. There is a luggage xray as soon as you enter the station and although it is organized okay, I imagine the lines might be long at some times of day so be sure to leave enough time for that.

“Good job china”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I was really impressed with the railway station. SO MUCH FOOD! and everywhere! There was a huge food court but I was in a rush to meet friends at the departure area, and there were more restaurants up there too! (the standard chinese chains, nothing too fancy). Clean, good signs everywhere, but to reiterate another review, bring paper into the toilet.

“Most efficient (and economical) way to reach different parts of the country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The tickets are reasonably priced. The trains are almost always on time. The seats are comfortable and the service is extremely efficient. It is difficult to fault this place except for maybe cribbing about the long walks between platforms (the station is quite huge, so be prepared for long-ish walks).
