Very well equipped station for catching High speed as well as normal trains. Almost feels like airport terminal. But beware that lot of walking is required to reach your boarding gate as well as platform. So reach station on time

Train Station in Shanghai- This is a monster station. Really huge building. You can find anything to eat there from Subway to real Chinese type of food. I like it very much. The only inconvenient thing is problem with communication in English. Still not many people working there, know this language, making things more complicated for all tourists. At this... More

Arrived from Beijing, glad to see escalators here too - helps with large luggage. Signage in English as well as Chinese, so navigation is easy. Watch out for the taxi touts at the exits - go outside and get in line, the queue can be really long but the line moves really fast as taxis are in constant supply.

Not much to say for a train station. Relatively clean and easy to navigate for an English speaker. The taxi queue was not that bad either.

It pays to read the online advice about train travel before attempting it. Book train tickets well in advance or you may not get them. This is a very popular method of travelling. Luckily for me my hotel's staff picked up my tickets from the train station. I would have had no idea how or where to collect them myself... More

Bit overwhelming I have to say and signage was hard to follow and whilst some in English wasn't easy. Not many people available to help either. Very busy and looked a little drab and lighting was dull, took us an age to get out and not easy with big suitcases we travelled business class and was surprised no porter service... More

Do not rely on wifi provided by shops, because they don't have. Screen capture where you are going for easy reference
