I have rarely seen a station that well organized. Upon arrival, they check your luggage and you pass a security screening. Then, they have this massive huge hall with all the gates to the trains. Just check your ticket and you'll know which gate to take. We still double checked and found our train number listed on the gate as... More

Yes, people everywhere. There are some very helpful staff to provide assistance. Try to avoid using the toilets there. Be prepared to queue up to 30 minutes for a cab in extreme heat in summer time. Unlike other part of the China, things here are much orderly.

Always large crowds waiting to buy tickets, large crowds for security, large crowds and chaos when boarding the train, on board it is very comfortable and the service is super efficient.

all the signage is in Chinese but English subtitles are visible. This is a super busy train station so allow extra time for tickets and boarding. A taxi to downtown take about 40 minutes and cost around RMB100 . the Hongqiao airport adjoins this complex.

The train station is huge but very well sign posted so even if you don't speak chinese there are signage in English. It looks like an airport. Clean, high security. We had a wonderful experience. Some countries like France can benchmark the way the chinese stations are managed.
