The VERY fast train, G Train, from Shanghai to Yiwu lunched end of 2014. This new train(actually new railway) makes the whole journey even shorter, only one hour and a half. The old D train retired. Other trains are too slow, not recommended.
* Train is only recommended if you have tickets in hand, and you are familiar with train transport system, and you have at least 45mins in train station prior departure. During holiday time, train stations are usually packed with people, can easily lose time from line up to line up.
