Easy connection from Pudong by subway line 2 to the Hongqiao airport for more local destinations and the next stop is the train station. Engligh translation more developped for and since Shanghai 2010 and for the tickets at few desks they speak English. To go to the train platform you need to show train ticket(s) and passports. They check bags... More

This railway station is a beehive of activity. If you're trying to purchase or collect your ticket alone as a foreigner who can't speak Mandarin you might find yourself irretrievably lost. Thankfully that's no longer me! The service is quite efficient and the design ensures it's pretty difficult not to be able to find your train when you need to!

Humungous like a lot of things in China. Despite that is still filled with people! Lots of shopping and restaurants. Well connected to other forms of transport. The train itself was very comfortable and everything works and is well organised. It's a new station so nothing architecturally magnificent. A big glass box with massive marble platforms.

This train station is mind boggling. It is absolutely enormous. The trains are boarded down escalators either side of the main concourse.nit is very easy to understand the departure board. There aren't many good places to eat but lots of places to shop. I think they are planing to open more food concessions.

For Europeans new to Shanghai it's just amazing. The train stations feel like airports with check-in and boarding desks. Also the size of this train station is awesome

Be careful taking the railways and subways because it can be very confusing and crowded. I suggest having a hotel business card and take a taxi. Most taxi rides under a half hour is around 45-50 Rmb ( $8.00 ) and it is worth every penny. Tipping is optional.

It can be quite confusing if it is your first time here. Ask for direction as the ticket booth to buy the highspeed train tickets are not easily found. I couldn't find it and ask for direction, ending up buying a tour package which include highspeed train to Hangzhou. The tour agent bought the highspeed train ticket for us.

This station is massive... It feels to me as though everything in China is operating on a different level. When you enter the station, it is overwhelming. Luckily, there are English directions everywhere. If you follow the signs, you should be alright. There is also an information desk in the middle of the station waiting area. The personnel's English is... More

not friendly for the disabled. Took my father who requires wheelchair for long distance travel, they reserve the elevators for transportation of goods but not for people with disabilities. We were told to use the escalator. The public bathrooms like any public restroom in china do not have toilets and no toilet paper provided which is very common for china.... More
