It is quite something for a rail station. Hell to actually pick up your tickets, so go early for that. But then enjoy the restaurants and have a wander about.

Order your tickets online and get them delivered to your hotel - well worth the US$15 in additional charges. Plenty of places to eat and platforms open precisely 15 minutes before train departure, but the queue starts early, so it pays to be at the turnstiles waiting.

A very large train station and with so many people travelling all the time it actually works very well. However if arriving there and you leave by taxi, be patient. Waiting line is often very long and waiting could easily be 30-45 minutes. But better wait instead of taking a pirate taxi. They will try to take you directly around... More

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.
