I have been living near Shanghai and traveling very frequently in this area. Most people taking Shanghai as a destination or travel hub consider the famous "Pudong Airport" but not realizing that the station is located very distant from the city.

Shanghai Hongqiao airport with it's new railway station is just idea to use as a travel hub, with all new brands available and large walking spaces you never feel isolated or cramped up but more comfortably ready for travel.

It's direct connection to the Hongqiao airport makes it ideal as the station to drive through even if you consider to take the new High speed train to other destinations in China. Shanghai Hongqiao to Beijing now only takes 4,5 hours. You waste more time by flight than by train. Amazing..!!!!

Staff is helpful but the walk from train station to the airport terminal is long!!! Be warned to calculate a 15 minute walk to get to your check in gate...

Very much considered your destination for travel, it is the modern age of China's infra structure

I use twice the Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station during my trip in China. I travelled by bullet train from Beijing and return. The Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is located on the fist stop of the subway and you can be in the downtown apprx in 45 minutes. I am not sure that this is the right place for Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station - among the attractions of Shanghai. The city is really nice and especially Pudong area is not real - you are like in a scientfiction movie.

Traveled with the high-speed train from Shanghai to Beijing. It was very easy to find the gates and the train. Check-in at the train went smoothly.

I travelled in to this station from Jinhua in January then travelled back to Jinhua from this station in February. on both occassions I found the staff polite and helpful, most spoke a little English. Signage very good. Staff on the trains also very polite and helpful.

Is clean, easy for commuters to figure out the trains and platform numbers, has ample space to wait for the train.. The station is connected to the Hongqiao Airport and Metro line 2 which adds in to its pros.
