Beijing

  • M32****931 24 Feb, 2016

    Beijing Station is quite old, but there are plenty of decorations if you take a close look. It is interesting compared to the other stations in Beijing.

  • 17***319 18 Feb, 2016

    Beijing Railway Station is located in the heart of Beijing. The building is distinctive and especially magnificent when It's lit up. The transportation extends in all directions with subways and buses.

  • m19****279 19 Jan, 2016

    By subway, taxi or bus, It's very convenient to go everywhere.

Beijing South

  • 285****993 17 Feb, 2016

    A modern station with convenient transportation. You can get there by lines 4 and 14. Unlike other high-speed railway stations, Beijing South is located in the downtown area. The building is great, well-equipped and clean.

  • M77****38 15 Feb, 2016

    Very large after re-construction. Very convenient to book and pick up tickets, as well as to take trains.

  • M37****463 25 May, 2016

    The bus and subway signs here are poor. The staff I inquired with were impatient, which disappointed me.

Beijing West

  • yu***1 10 Feb, 2016

    There are just too many people during the Spring Festival travel rush. This is the station with the biggest passenger traffic in China.

  • e15****56 6 Feb, 2016

    Quite a big station. There are restaurants and supermarkets across the road.

  • _m18*****5358 20 Jan, 2016

    To be frank, Beijing West Railway Station is dirty and messy. The only saving grace is its uncrowded parking lot. I only take trains here when I have to.

Beijing North

  • M30****042 6 Jan, 2016

    I have come to Beijing North Railway Station. The transportation is very convenient.

  • 138****9801 25 Dec, 2015

    Reachable by subway lines 2, 4 and 13. Mainly provides short-distance trains from Changping to Yanqing.

  • 159****0528 19 Dec, 2015

    Beijing North Railway Station is in Xizhimen. It's convenient to take the subway there. It provides trains to Yanqing.

Shanghai

  • _CFT01*******9024477 9 Feb, 2016

    Good location. Transportation available at both the south and north square.

  • M19****117 8 Feb, 2016

    Big station with many people. The transportation is very convenient.

  • 110****970 7 Feb, 2016

    The old Shanghai Station. It looks old from both inside and outside. I hope it can be renovated one day.

Shanghai Hongqiao

  • E03****56 4 May, 2016

    Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is the biggest railway station on the Beijing-Shanghai Railway. You can transfer to the subway, high-speed railway and airport all in one station. The waiting room is very spacious and is filled with various shops and restaurants, which can help kill time during the long wait. The security check is not very strict and you can come in and out as you wish, which shows the capacity of Shanghai. I like it.

  • 170****529 15 Apr, 2016

    It's magnificent and not far from the airport. There are many people here.

  • 132****9416 28 Mar, 2016

    It's a high-speed railway station with a strong modern atmosphere. It's better than Shanghai Station.

Shanghai South

  • 110****970 7 Feb, 2016

    Have been there when I went to Zhejiang. It looked messy from the outside, because of the high passenger traffic. It was better inside.

  • e15****56 5 Feb, 2016

    It's connected with Line 1 and 3. There are lots of restaurants and shops, including discount shops.

  • 231****978 28 Jan, 2016

    Mainly normal speed trains stop here.

Guangzhou

  • 118****630 1 Feb, 2016

    The most important train station in southern China.

  • _yt4*****913 30 Dec, 2015

    People swarmed to get on the train every time I got off at Guangzhou. Big station indeed!

  • _M15*****1551 25 May, 2016

    The passenger traffic of Guangzhou station was incredible! I didn't come during the Spring Festival but the ground was full of people. Passengers were only allowed into the waiting room due to the heavy traffic, which kept people in the outside square and I had to go through the crowd to get some food. There was another security check in addition to the one at the entrance of the square. The crowds were just a mess! People were just pushing each other without queues and rules! It got better after I entered, but the noise in the waiting area was still annoying. Finally, I bought a ticket with access to the business waiting room, which is comfortable, equipped with plugs, and not expensive. By the way, you can get on the train in advance and avoid the crowds.

Guangzhou East

  • cli****fish 23 Feb, 2016

    Most Guangzhou East trains are within a short distance. The intercity railway to Shenzhen and the Guangzhou-Kowloon train starts here. It's nice that there are not too many people.

  • E14****59 27 Jan, 2016

    The transportation is very convenient thanks to its location in central Guangzhou.

  • _m13*****6803 22 Apr, 2016

    I went back and forth from Guangdong to Hunan over 2 days. It was very convenient thanks to the high-speed trains! The station is big and is a high-end traffic hub.

Guangzhou North

  • 206****676 8 Dec, 2015

    It's the nearest high-speed railway station to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. But it takes half an hour minimum and there are few trains to the airport.

  • 121****185 21 Nov, 2015

    It's just the former Huadu Train Station. It's small in size and schedule, with only a few trains stopping here.

  • 288****066 16 Nov, 2015

    It's a little bit far to go to Huadu to take trains and the transportation there is not very convenient.

Guangzhou South

  • 180****2018 24 Feb, 2016

    The high-speed railway takes only 36 minutes from Guangzhou South to Shenzhen North, which is convenient. Catering services are comprehensive, including KFC, McDonald's, Dicos and Ajisen Ramen. There are also waiting areas for children and the disabled and you can buy some souvenirs here in the gift shop. Guangzhou South is really impressive and I'll come again.

  • cli****fish 23 Feb, 2016

    This is a high-speed railway station. There are long distance trains to Beijing, Shanghai and so on. It's in Panyu District, which is quite far from the city. Luckily you can take the subway to get there.

  • jul****zx 22 Feb, 2016

    It only takes 5 minutes to transfer within the station. It's convenient and there are many restaurants.

Shenzhen

  • M28****570 25 Jan, 2016

    Shenzhen railway station is very large. The transportation is convenient because of its location in Luohu District.

  • _cft01*******0118628 22 Jan, 2016

    Too many people passing the border. The environment is complicated and messy.

  • q**21 15 Jan, 2016

    It's at the heart of the old town of Luohu District. Its surroundings are dirty and messy like many other stations. It's the terminal station for the Guangzhou-Shenzhen intercity railway.

Shenzhen West

  • _yt4*****751 3 Jan, 2016

    The cheapest ticket from Guangzhou to Shenzhen is to Shenzhen West.

  • _yt4*****913 3 Jan, 2016

    The service of the staff in Shenzhen West Railway Station is really poor. The authorities should take some measures to improve it.

  • 320****191 14 Dec, 2015

    It's in Shenzhen's Nanshan District. There used to be lots of trains here but there are fewer now.

Shenzhen North

  • 118****907 24 Feb, 2016

    It's close to downtown, and it takes about 20 minutes to urally resulting in a large flow of passengers. It's convenient to get there on the subway. The service is good. The only problem is there are too many people.

  • _WB1*****851 7 Feb, 2016

    Shenzhen North Railway Station is the biggest railway station I've seen. And It's very orderly.

  • _CFT01*******1351912 18 May, 2016

    Shenzhen North Railway Station is at the heart of Shenzhen city and makes it convenient to travel everywhere.
