Very big and crowded station indeed! At the same time it's well organized and clean. Great place to take pictures from is the second floor (close to McDonalds). Try to buy drinks/snacks somewhere beforehand as prices bite (usual thing for railway station though).

Not many elevators. Some need assistance to unlock the lift. The ticket counters are everywhere. Easy to buy tickets as they can speak basic English.

ShangHai HongQiao Railway Station is one of the most convenient place that I have arrived China and transport to other location and other cities in China. There are plane , Subway and Railway station combined in this place. You can fly to China ShangHai HongQiao airport and then transport to other places. It is very convenient.

This is my new favorite transportation hub. So simple and efficient. Even with crazy crowds you are able to get where you need to be with very little stress.

My advice would be to collect your tickets the day before and to give yourself a chance to familiarise yourself with the layout of the station. We took a train from here to Beijing. Each of the ticket halls we visited had pretty large queues so you have to be prepared to queue, which is always interesting in China. To... More

Get into the queue as early possible and you can stay relaxed post your tickets are issued . Gates will open 30 minutes before the departure time, think so. Well organised and clean place.

The rail stations in China are massive to say the least. They are geared to handle thousands of people every day. The trains are the newest , latest technology- very clean and easy to navigate. Both airports connected. Announcements in English. Much faster than sitting in traffic!
