Subway

SubwayThe 4 largest Chinese cities; Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Guangzhou, all have very good subway systems, with all the stations, ticket-booking offices and transit points clearly marked with their names both in Chinese and English.

In every subway train, travel information also comes in Chinese and English.

The subway operates 18 hours per day, normally between 5:10 and 23:30 local time, with an interval of 4 to 6 minutes between every 2 trains. The hours between 6:30 and 8:30 and between 17:00 and 19:00 are the morning and evening rush hours respectively.
