Shanghai Railway Station, South Square









Bus bays, not too well designed in terms of space efficiency IMO - they do it a lot better in Hong Kong



Tianmu Road



Hengfeng Road

Close-up of station entrance



Office towers under construction







Shanghai Station Station ...



Through the tunnel to the rebuilt northern square. These low rise buildings turned out to be yellowy ...

Took an express bus to an Expo bus station.



A vast amount of space for fairly few buses which, for the most time, carried fresh air.



On another bus towards Hongqiao Airport and Railway Station. Going past some newly-built rural dwelling.



Approaching the airport

Arrived into Hongqiao Airport bus station. The driver dumped me and a handful of other passengers unceremoniously onto the tarmac.



Interior of bus station













A car park across some road inaccessible by pedestrians from here.

Hongqiao Airport Metro Station ticket hall





Airport entrance to the east. Didn't go inside the doors as I couldn't be bothered with the security checks.





Railway station to the west - 400 metres away.



200 ...



There we are! Oh still some distance to go

Another hall of empty space





Arrival hall, quite empty this time last year, but as Hangzhou and Beijing trains subsequently began operation from this station this hall has become steadily busier



Information board



Ticket machines

Shops in the arrival hall



Departure level can be accessed via escalators and lifts either end of the arrival hall. The nearside (eastside) escalators were not yet in operation so I had to walk all the way to the far (west) side of the arrival hall to go upstairs.



A diagram of the layout of the complex



Taxi ranks



Towards the Metro station serving the train station, a different one to the one serving the airport on the east side



This is the Line 2 bit.



The Line 10 bit has now been opened.

Take a look back at the arrival hall, towards the east



Looks like a train has just arrived chucking out a load of passengers



Going up to the departure hall



A cheaky peak at a train



First sight of departures



Oh not the blasted security checks again!

Thames town is the most bizarre thing I have ever seen! It looked so much like England until you see the Chinese characters!

Very interesting thread indeed!

Thanks! There's a Scandinavian Town (New Luodian) and a Dutch Town (New Gaoqiao) too, but I didn't have enough time last summer to explore them.

Very nice indeed! I took a high-speed train from Beijing South to Shanghai Hongqiao - a pretty amazing experience. It doesn't feel like you're going nearly 200mph until you look out the window and see how fast things are going by. Made it to Shanghai in just under 5 hours, passing through Nanjing.
Loving the photos, showing more than just the tourist-filled areas of the Bund/Pudong. Keep it going!

Thanks SSSM!

Just a few more from Hongqiao to finish this thread -

Turned out once I had come upstairs there was no way back down unless I went through the security check, so there was no reason not to explore the waiting hall!







The balcony at the back provided good views for both the interior and the exterior







Anyone who says Hongqiao is in a good location for Central Shanghai needs their head examined.



Scene of emptiness outside the west gate



Station building exterior which probably only 1 in 100 passengers will ever see
