Beijing

  • M31****593 20 Mar, 2016

    Have been to Beijing Railway Station to transfer many times. The passenger traffic is huge while the station is orderly and sanitary. It's great overall.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • ka***a 6 May, 2016

    Have been to Beijing South Railway Station several times, using a different gate each time. It feels messy but people seem to have got used to it. It takes some thinking to survive here.

  • 151****4988 16 Apr, 2016

    This station is nothing but large. I looked for places all around.

Beijing West

  • m18****139 20 Apr, 2016

    Cozy, convenient, orderly, and well-equipped.

  • 120****207 16 Apr, 2016

    It feels like the biggest traffic hub of Beijing. Though it has been here for years, the facilities are still as good as those in the new high-speed railway station, as the waiting room is quite clean. It has a splendid exterior and the screens and hallways after the security check are majestic. There are plenty of restaurants and shops. The traffic is still busy at night, which could be troublesome when trains are delayed.

  • 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

  • 120****207 16 Apr, 2016

    This station only provides a few trains to Hebei and S-intercity trains. It's small in size and was formerly known as Xizhimen Station. The passengers here now are mainly commuters and tourists to Badaling, so the passenger traffic is fine. By the way, the so-called S2 intercity train is in fact a normal speed train with a CRH outfit.

  • 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.

Shanghai

  • _CFT01*******8441221 6 May, 2016

    I've been there several times. The scenery in Shanghai is fascinating, great for photograph taking!

  • 132****9416 28 Mar, 2016

    As people who have been there before will know, It's a big station. Unfortunately, the sanitation is poor.

  • M15****570 17 Mar, 2016

    Security here is good and the ground is clean. Obviously it costs the government a lot of manpower and money. I hope the good service can keep up.

Shanghai Hongqiao

  • M81****86 9 May, 2016

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

  • 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.

Shanghai South

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • e**ye 13 Mar, 2016

    Not many trains here and most of them are normal speed trains. It would be much more convenient if there could be some high-speed trains. The facilities here are great!

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.

  • 118****630 1 Feb, 2016

    The most important train station in southern China.

Guangzhou East

  • _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.

  • 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.

Guangzhou North

  • 120****207 2 Apr, 2016

    It's in Huadu District without a subway and small in scale. However, it has its advantages in that both high speed railways and normal fast trains are available here. And it's more comfortable due to the small foot traffic. It makes it convenient for people in northern Guangzhou to travel. It will be even more convenient when Metro Line 9 connecting the airport is put in to use.

  • 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.

Guangzhou South

  • _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!

  • 139****3651 26 Mar, 2016

    It only takes about one hour to connect with Guangzhou East by subway, but it is a bit far from the subway exit, which means it takes some extra time to buy tickets. Also, you are not able to buy a ticket on the ticket vending machine using a Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong and Macao.

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.

  • _CFT01*******0118628 22 Jan, 2016

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

Shenzhen West

  • E21****351 5 Mar, 2016

    It's very hard to find this place. And my Guangzhou number mobile lost signal here.

  • _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.

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.

  • 120****207 13 May, 2016

    Due to its large scale, It's more comfortable than the old station. The "true high-speed train" takes no more than half an hour to get to Guangzhou South. I've been here many times and have seen it develop into today's traffic hub and business is booming. However, with the number of passengers increasing, it takes more time to pass the security check (about 20 minutes). Please allow some time. Still, the waiting room is capable of accommodating passengers without being crowded.

  • 150****6988 30 Apr, 2016

    A huge place. Sometimes I can't even find my way.
