Arrive at least 1h before your train as it can get busy to get into the station. Once in is really easy to find your way around, big screens with trains timetables, announcements in English for every boarding /departing train. It is more organized than any European city, user-friendly.

This is a very busy site so before you go into a melt down look for a young person that has some grasp of English and show them your ticket, they will always help by pointing out what line you need to join. The staff are also very helpful.

We took a bullet train from here to XiAn, only took 6 hours, it would take 23 hours on a normal train. Train station is very busy, but easy to navigate.

The bullet train made traveling 4+ hours into 2 hours of enjoyable accommodation worthy repeating. The lady assisting us was courteous and very helpful. The seats in the business class reclines and can actually allow passengers to lay flat and sleep.

New and big as everything in Beijing. A bit hard to navigate unless you are going by
Metro or bus. I took a bullet train heading to Shanghai and since I was leaving Beijing I wanted to withdraw the remaining amount in my IC card. The office for doing this is called BMAC and are located in or on the way to the bus terminal, but no specific signs for this office - look for an anonymous door over which there is a big blue sign (Beijing Municipal Administration & Communications Card Co LTD) - see the attached picture. Opening hours are 8:30 am to 7:30 pm so if you have an early visit here it’s not sure you will have time for repurchase of your IC card. Another thing that was hard to find out was that even though the information was that check in for the trains opens 1 hour before departure, they are letting people in in the same order their train departs. That means if your train departs 10 am and another train departs 9:45 am from the same gate they don’t let you in until the gate closes for the 9:45 departure, which is 9:30. Relax and have a coffee instead, there is plenty of places.

You can get Yikatong refund at Beijing South Railway station (for those entering Beijing from southern cities - like Tianjin in my case).

The Yikatong service center is situated on your left right after you exiting the turnstile on the north exit (but still inside the station).

Don't contact the subway window because you will get confused from the signage saying "no Yikatong refund at this station" (it means no refund at this subway station). But this card is supported by railway operator so definitely can get refund at South Railway station.

The subway itself is great and efficient. Only the confusing signage that may cause problem to tourists.

This is a very busy station with many things happening but is the key place to be able to get trains to go visit different cities in the south of Beijing all the way to Shanghai. You need to have a translator or go with a lot of time in order to make sure you figure out the process ahead of time and don't miss your train. Check online for schedules before.
