Hangzhou to Shanghai D Train Schedule

Today, Wendy and I went to the Shanghai South Railway Station to pickup my parents-in-law. They took train D680 from Hangzhou to Shanghai South Station. I still haven’t try any of D train so far, but from their description, it is a wonderful train.

D Trains

D Trains are the best trains in China, and are of the first level in almost all aspects:

  • Hardware is cutting-edge, and most advanced
  • Railway resources are given to D trains with highest priorities. Other trains, like Z, T, K, or those without a letter in their name, all give ways to D trains. It has the right of road most of the time when there is a schedule conflict.
  • Their ticket prices are also the highest among all trains

  1. Hi

    How many railway stations are in Shanghai. I am planning to go Hangzhou from Shanghai.

    Do I need to go to the Shanghai south station to take the train ?

    How far Shanghai south station from the Shanghai Hongqiao airport?

    Many Thanks


  2. @Raul, there are two railway stations in Shanghai. One is the Shanghai Station (on the north side of the city), the other is Shanghai South Station. Most of trains to Hangzhou depart at Shanghai South Station, but there are also some from Shanghai Station.

    It is about 20 km (roughly) from Hong Qiao to South Station. Take a taxi there is the most convenient way.

  12. Where is the Hangzhou & Shanghai D-train station located (e.g. in what road)? Can anybody suggest which hotel should I stay in order to reach the two station easily?

  13. To some of you folks wanting to go to Hangzhou from Shanghai, go to the Shanghai South station. Catch a train there and you should be there in one hour. I think it cost USD12 for the soft seat. I went there in the morning, visited the Wset Lake (Xihu) in Hangzhou, took a boat round the islands, had a great lunch at the Laowailou in the Xihu and came back to Shanghai late evening. Total cost, about USD50. From the Hangzhou station, catch a bus to the Holiday Inn and start your walkaround to the West Lake (Xihu).
