Editor’s Description

Last updated: Jun 12, 2019
Originally built in 1908, destroyed in World War II, and rebuilt in 2006, South Railway Station is a sprawling complex on the south side of Shanghai, accessible by metro lines 1 and 3. You're better off traveling here by metro, which will take 30 minutes from downtown. A cab will take at least that. Most of the trains here are headed south to destinations like Hangzhou, Huangshan, Fujian, and Guangdong. The place is massive, with loads of local restaurants as well as Western chains like Starbucks and McDonald's. Nothing fancy though. You can buy tickets here, but lines are long. Bring your passport. As with any train station in the world, watch out for pickpockets. A lot of long distance buses depart from here too, but the lot is a 15-20 minute walk from where the metro drops you off. Bonus: this place has a high-speed train to Shanghai's Jinshan Beach, which you can reach in under 30 minutes for 10rmb. Check our feature article for more about that.
