You can use taxi or walk around 700m to reach Laoximen metro station and take metro line 10 to reach Hongqiao railway station directly. Both options are convenient to use.

I think a few counters there begin work at 5:30am. It should not be a problem. Not sure if the counter will still in service after 10pm. You can have a try. If you will stay in a hotel the night of landing, you can use delivery service. It is much easy, no line up for ticket collection.

Hi, they are two different stations in same city. Taian is the one serves bullet rides and Taishan station serves slow rides. You can reach Mt Taishan from both stations.
