My wife, Doug, and I have just returned from our Beijing-Xian-Shanghai trip and want to thank you for the wonderful one week we spent in China and the most dedicated and professional service we received from our guides in Beijing (Alan), Xi'an (Jerry) and Shanghai (Bob) and their respective drivers.

Shanghai Railway Station

Each city has its own train station in China, and Shanghai is of course no exception. Of all the 6 railway stations in Shanghai, there are three main train stations - Shanghai Railway Station, Shanghai South Railway Station and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. So whether you are leaving Shanghai or arriving at Shanghai by train, you are kindly advised to know which train station you are going to use.

So make sure you know which station you want to depart from and arrive at. You have a couple of ways to recognize the train station first by checking your train ticket which indicates the name of the railway station in Shanghai (either Shanghai Railway Station or Shanghai South Railway Station). Also most of the trains from North China (Beijing, Tianjin) arrive at Shanghai Railway Station while most of the trains from South China arrive at Shanghai South Railway Station. You may directly ask your train conductors to get the correct train station in Shanghai. Please note that the Hong Kong trains arrive at Shanghai Railway Station and High speed trains at Shanghai South Railway Station. But this is not a fixed rule. The fact is that some trains for North China also leave at Shanghai South Railway Station and some for South China leave Shanghai railway Station.

In case you get a wrong railway station when you depart, no worry then! Both of the stations are connected to Metro Line 1 and Line 3. It is very easy for you go between the two railwa stations in half hour.

Buy train tickets: Unless you buy the tickets at railway station ticket boots, there is always a small fee on buying a train ticket from agents. The good way is to go official ticket offices and it will cost you only 5 RMB per ticket. If you call a travel agent, the max. amount could be 30 RMB and more even in non-national holiday period. But using a agent is time saving though a little bit costly.
