    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!

    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.).

    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.

    Well organized station. Every time I come here, everything is good and on time. It's definitely better take a train than a plane.

    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.

    Everything about this station is awesome, except for the initial security screen, which is a total clusterfuck. The need to invest in more scanners

    hostesses at the VIP lounge are well trained in the arts of deception , trickery, and general stupidity. They will tell you there is no wi-fi in the station. Lies. PASS cafe next door has decent Wifi

    If there is a taxi line on south exit, try north one, will cost a lil more to get to downtown, but usually no lines.

    Big, bright train station. Long line-ups to buy or change tickets. Do not check ID when entering security like at some train stations, but always xray bags. Gates open 15 minutes before train leaves.
