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.

  • E03****56 21 Apr, 2016

    Beijing Railway Station has been playing an important role over the years. It leaves a deep impression on us who wait there, take trains, and transfer. Back in 2013, there was a bad smell in the waiting room on the first floor. However, when I went there this Spring Festival, it was much better. There were many changes like the newly-opened KFC, Qing Feng steamed dumpling and so on with fair prices. The service in general was much improved.

  • fra****93 9 Mar, 2016

    It's an old station. I grew up hearing the chime bell from the station. In the old days, it was the first impression for newcomers.

Beijing South

  • M37****463 25 May, 2016

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

  • _M13*****3643 27 Mar, 2016

    Came here for a pickup. The service was great. Purchased the platform ticket when I got here.

  • M24****742 6 Mar, 2016

    Magnificent! The business model inside the station is pretty good.

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.

  • M35****461 10 Apr, 2016

    Bright and spacious. The staff are warm-hearted and the signs are clear.

  • e26****23 15 Apr, 2016

    I used to arrive at Beijing Station or Beijing South. The first arrival at Beijing West brought me different feeling.

Beijing North

  • _cft01*******6735272 18 Nov, 2015

    Beijing North mainly has normal speed trains to the Great Wall, Zhangjiakou and Inner Mongolia. It's near the Xizhimen subway station. It's small in size and the waiting room is often filled with people.

  • 286****148 9 Nov, 2015

    Essential station on my way back home. It has been there for years.

  • 118****569 3 Nov, 2015

    A small railway station. Only has trains to Zhangjiakou and Badaling.

Shanghai

  • M19****117 8 Feb, 2016

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

  • _CFT01*******9024477 9 Feb, 2016

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

  • 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

  • M35****198 24 Mar, 2016

    More crowded than I imagined. There are long queues at the ticket vending machines. The environment feels new and clean.

  • M32****748 10 Mar, 2016

    Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station is an important traffic hub. Every day hundreds of thousands of passengers are transferred here.

  • M81****86 9 May, 2016

    Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station has a spacious waiting room with passengers coming and going in an endless stream.

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.

  • M15****570 17 Mar, 2016

    It is a big station, kind of like a terminal building. The Shanghai South Long-distance Bus Station is nearby. The building is complicated and it could be challenging for newcomers to find their way.

  • 132****9416 28 Mar, 2016

    I only have been there once from Yangzhou by train. It feels big. It was a cursory trip and I hope to go there again one day!

Guangzhou

  • _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.

  • M32****179 17 Mar, 2016

    Large passenger flow, a metropolis indeed! Signs are clear. The subway is right at the exit. Very convenient.

  • _yt4*****913 30 Dec, 2015

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

Guangzhou East

  • M30****798 15 Jan, 2016

    The signs are not very clear. It doesn't make the station feel convenient or comfortable.

  • _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.

  • E21****351 5 Mar, 2016

    I always come here to take trains to Dongguan. The station is between Guangzhou South and Guangzhou Station. Not bad.

Guangzhou North

  • 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.

  • 134****5608 14 Sep, 2015

    The Guangzhou North station is at Huadu District, which is really far from downtown. It's a small station with few trains.

  • 186****6359 9 Sep, 2015

    The north station is quite far away and few trains stop there. The station is not very big.

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.

  • _M15*****1551 25 May, 2016

    I came to Guangzhou South to take the high-speed railway. It looks quite new because it started to operate in 2010 and is not as crowded as Guangzhou Station. Once subway line 7 opens, it will be more convenient.

  • _m13*****6803 22 Apr, 2016

    This is a grand gateway and transportation hub for Guangzhou. Transferring without getting out of the station is really convenient!

Shenzhen

  • M15****882 24 Apr, 2016

    Shenzhen Railway Station is near the port of Luohu and Hong Kong is just on the other side of the hill. The Luohu Mall and a bus station are nearby.

  • M28****570 25 Jan, 2016

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

  • 233****998 14 Jan, 2016

    To be honest, the station is not well-structured. There is a strange smell in the restroom.

Shenzhen West

  • M15****721 8 Nov, 2015

    It's lively but not messy here. Good memories for me!

  • 131****3328 1 Nov, 2015

    It took me a while to find the station after I got out of the taxi. It wasn't as conspicuous as other modern buildings around. Shenzhen is a green city, including the station.

  • je***34 19 Oct, 2015

    There are trains from Yiwu to Shenzhen West. I've been there once but It's not as well known as Luohu Station and Shenzhen North.

Shenzhen North

  • _CFT01*******1351912 18 May, 2016

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

  • M19****904 20 Mar, 2016

    Great management, comfortable environment, considerate notification. I enjoyed the trip.

  • _WB1*****851 7 Feb, 2016

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