Everything runs like clockwork. Huge railway station with its own shopping district. That said it was the longest taxi queue ever although it did move relatively fast with a steady stream of taxis coming through. Good signage in Chinese and English.

I am a frequent traveler to China and when at all possible, will take the high speed train over airplanes, especially during foggy season in Fall. Air flights are notoriously late in China due to high volume of travellers and military action (unannounced). The country is connected by high speed railway and tickets can be reserved, seating is clean and... More

I came to this Station from Wenzhou, coming from Ruian City. I wasted my flight to Shanghai just to have an experience of this high speed train and i must say it was worth it. Amongst the best in world.

This has to be the largest train station we have ever used. We can only speak about arriving here. We arrived from Hangzhou and walked what seemed like a gazillion steps before we could find the proper door for taxi queues for where we wanted to go. The station is so huge that you must know where you want to... More

I spend a lot of time in Shanghai, and travel by high-speed train from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station often. This station is modern and easy to navigate as a non-Chinese speaker traveling alone. Lot's of familiar fast-food restaurants if you want to pick up a quick breakfast or lunch prior to departure.

A very modern railway station and very big has lots of shops and restaurants .. i took the train for one stop , it was very efficient but make sure to have the name of the station you are goin to in chinese so that the ticket office sales can understand .

Very efficiently run railway station. Collected the ticket for the G2 train to Beijing and boarded the train with no difficulty. Extremely helpful staff and fellow passengers. (Though we had been provided with a few translated stock sentences) 5 star service. Would use it again if ever I visit China.

a cavernous train station adjoins the airport, inside it is warm and airy, clean and tidy, great signage in Chinese and English.. as a frequent user of the UK train system, the Chinese put us to shame
