"HANGZHOU EAST --------------the biggest station in ASIAN~"

What exactly is meant by that?
According to Wikipedia:
"As of 2006, the world's largest station was Beijing West station in Beijing.[11] But subsequent stations have also been claimed as larger than Beijing West; Beijing South, Guangzhou South, Nanjing South, Shanghai Hongqiao and Xi'an North all also claim to be Asia's largest.[12]"

The biggest station in China would also be the biggest station in the world, and I have heard of many stations claiming to be the biggest station in China, and now you added Hangzhou to that list?

Can anyone say which is ACTUALLY the biggest, and in what category (m2, m3, number of platforms, number of tracks, number of passengers, etc.)?

It should be size in m2 and m3 but frankly that's my opinion. It cannot be number of platforms, number of tracks, number of passengers because there are larger ones which serve to commuter rail and metro systems such as the ones in New York and Japan.

However, a simple look to google earth will reveal that there is not many in other parts of the world that can be comparable to the ones on Chinese HSR network when looked to m2/m3.

This was discussed before in other topics here is my attempt to explain it from an older topic:

"By floor area, this is probably the largest:



It spans more than 500 meters with 34 platforms excluding the metro lines.

Guangzhou one 2nd among new Chinese dedicated high speed rail stations with ~470 meters span.

Guangzhou is followed by Shanghai, Harbin, Beijing and Wuhan in this order among the new stations."

Apparently Hangzhou East Railway Station spans more than 600 meters so yes possibly Hangzhou East Railway Station is the largest.

That's fascinating. Hangzhou East has been provisioned for maglev as well, with 3 platforms and 4 tracks. I thought maglev was out of the window in China, but I guess not?
