  1. Hello Shaji,

    Basically, it is very easy, just go to Beijing South Railway Station and buy your ticket at the ticketing offices by cash. So be ready for some amount of cash. As far as I know, they don’t accept cash unless you use the automatic ticket selling machines which are a bit difficult for you to handle.

    Avoid traveling during Chinese national holiday ( May 1 -3, and Oct 1 – 7) when you must book your train tickets in advance. Normally, you don’t need to book your ticket upfront since there are 44 daily high-speed trains running from Beijing to Shanghai. You will arrive at Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. See the train station information below:

    1. Departure Hall of Beijing South Railway Station

    2. Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station

  2. Hello Adeniji Ibrahim,

    Please try to contact them directly or hotel booking websites for the rates.

  3. My advice to people who read this site is to read Trip Advisor’s negative comments about these so-called top 10 budget hotels/hostels.
