Had to catch the train from here to Beijing. I left my hotel from the Bund at 7:30 am and arrived at 8:15. about an $18 (AUS) fare. The station is near an airport of the same name and appears as big as the airport. However, I was expecting a difficult experience in picking up my ticket. So I was... More

This new modern railway station is very large, clean, and safe. All the signs are additionally written in English. It was very orderly and the lines were very smooth. It has a good collection of places to eat and Starbucks. I found it very easy to navigate and use for my journey. Give yourself a little extra time to go... More

I had no difficulty whatsoever navigating my way to the proper ticket kiosk and my train. My only recommendation is to prebook your travel with TravelChinaGuide.com. I received excellent service from them that enhanced my travel experience greatly.

Cant even find a place to seat. Most of the time we just seat on the floor while waiting for our train

Very big station, very clean. A lot of shops around the concourse, from eating to shopping. Very well organised boarding, I was part of a party of around 100 people and we all were directed to our high speed train carriage.

Easy to navigate through the train station. Have to be at the train station early if you need to retrieve the train ticket. The station has plenty of shops and restaurant if you need to grab some food before boarding.

This is the railway station where the high speed train arrives/departs to Beijing. The cheapest and easiest way to access is via the metro which arrives on a different floor. There are a number of floors where you can access or pick up tickets for the fast trains, just be aware not all the ticket outlets are open, but all... More

An expansive but well organised terminus with many food outlets and ticket offices. Paramount to establish the location of the appropriate ticket office for your destination.
