    Chinese domestic ticketing is great. They let you change train even if you already booked ticket. Just give the booking number and id number and it'll be done within a minute. But beware of queues.

    Plan your trip well. Every steps you will do in this station, you have to que in line. Starting from the security check, buying ticket, etc; even from getting yourself a free bottled water!

    You are better off buying your ticket with a travel agent. Need to pay an extra 20 rmb but worth it. No need to wait at the station. Always busy here.

    Are you in a hurry? You can actually take the earlier train which stops at your destination. Go thru the lady/guy checking the ticket. And tell them you are in a hurry. I just did, now..

    If u wanna buy a ticket here, so you should have 2-3 hours before train. Anyway you can buy a ticket in small ticket places in Shanghai, but they can sell them only before close (around 5 p.m.).

    If you wanna go to Hongqiao Airport, follow the subway signs and take the metro line 10. Terminal 2 is the first stop, terminal 1 is the second. It costs only RMB 3,00.
