Very organized and clean. Less cheap than in toher Chinese cities, but still cheap. A bit annoying the check of the bags and of the people every time atthe entrance, but this is the Chinese law about secutity.

China is so darn big. Even the subways take some time to get to know. Avoid rush hours. Too many people trying to get on a train. And be prepared to spen some time on them.
