Wow! I love the airport-like train stations in many Chinese cities.
Nanjing's and Kunming's main train stations are very cool as well.

Nanjing's train station interior - looks very "Calatravish"? Might he be the architect?

Look at the taxi, the station is a hugh monster!

I've been to the new Nanjing railway station, really impressive. It connects to the subway which takes you to the downtown in no time!

BTW, does anybody know which train station in shanghai will connect maglev and subway? Does south station connect with any subway lines?

What does Duty Master mean on the sign? I thought it was called duty manager or there is a duty master for something else? Great looking station, I wish all Chinese stations will be like that"!

Asia's largest railway station

SHANGHAI, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) --


The Shanghai municipal government announced here Thursday that the city will start building what will be Asia's largest railway station this year.

Hongqiao Railway Hub, the new station, is located in the west of downtown Shanghai, and covers an area of 1.33 million square meters, said Liu Lianqing, director of the Shanghai Railway Bureau.

Construction of the station, which is expected to cost between 13 billion and 15 billion yuan (1.6 billion and 1.8 billion U.S. dollars), will be completed by 2010.

The design of the new station has been made, according to Liu.

The station will provide terminals for four high-speed lines, including high-speed trains between Beijing and Shanghai, and between Shanghai and Ningbo, and the Shanghai-Hangzhou maglev railway, according to Liu.

Currently, the largest passenger transport railway station in Asia is Beijing West Railway Station, covering 510,000 square meters, which began operation in 1996.

Looks huge, but the design is very boring.
