    Chaos there. It takes at least half an hour to jam up the ramp to the departure door. Police patrol there are just scarecrows.

    If you're getting off from the subway , look for the signs that say railway station. You gotta go upstairs like 2 levels. There are lots of gates, so be here about an hour in advance of your train

    Almost all high speed trains to Shanghai leave from this station. It's easy to buy ticket in the station for foreigners unless it's holiday which means you have to wait in a long queue.

    if you forgot your Chinese national ID card, you can make a temporary one in the railway station. but it obviously takes a while.

    If you're commuting between Beijing and Tianjin regularly, highly recommend the commuter pass! I love it! I can roll into the station and get the next train going out.

    Buy tickets in advance. I bought mine at a booth near Tiananmen Square for a 5RMB surcharge. Finding a seat while you wait is nearly impossible. Try SPR coffee for a quieter place to sit and wait.

    Free bottled water from station staff on hot days - just show your ticket to the attendants handing out water.

    Pick up tickets booked online with a passport at the ticket office. The self service kiosks can only accept local Chinese ID cards.

    If you need to buy a metro ticket its only 2rmb for a single to any station/exchange and don't forget to put your note on the left of the hole otherwise it won't get inside ;-)

    So much more convenient with train to shanghai. Service has improved somewhat. queues are shorter. Book ticket in advance on holidays. Don't forget your passport.

    Their convenience shops are not as convenient as 7 eleven. But according to service desk, the nearest 7 eleven is miles away. Thanks BEIJING.

    If you book the ticket with Chinese ID card, and you forget to take it, you can only get your ticket with Hukou book. Passport cannot be recognized.

    Make sure you have correct passport number on the ticket if you are a non-Chinese!!! otherwise you will stay here longer than planned!

    If you come and it's way overcrowded and you can't find a seat a good idea would be to go to McDonalds or BurgerKing and order something small and then use the complimatry seating! And free wifi!!
