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.

It's HUGE! Signs are both in English and in Chinese so you cannot get lost. Not many will speak English either. We spoke to a lady at the Information Centre and she spoke ok English. The trains are VERY punctual so arrive early. The trains will not wait for a second. There are tons of restaurants there and also a... More

We came in on the railway from Hangzhou and then left on subway. Well signposted for whatever you need to do next. Very busy, but probably is at any time. Biggest wait and hassle was getting subway tickets. Huge queues at ticket machines and someone who we figured was trying to 'help' and then demanding a fee. At 11:45 on... More
