The Hongqiao Railway station is right adjacent to the International airport and is interconnected. It is quite large/majestic in terms of size and the number of train platforms. Its the place to grab high speed bullet trains to Beijing and other parts of China.

My family took the high speed train from Shanghai to Beijing from this station and it is massive. However, despite its size, signs were written in English and Chinese and it made it easy to find where we were going to get our train.

The travel on a speed train in China is very comfortable, so the trains are full. I was not aware of that and haven't booked my ticket in advance. As the result: 1. I had to stand in the queue for 20 minutes to buy...More
