This study explores the interaction between perceived and calculated thermal comfort in high-speed railway station in Cold Region of China. To achieve this, a questionnaire survey in two typical high-speed railway stations in Cold Region of China was conducted in conjunction with physical measurements. The study results reveal that there is a relatively large difference between perceived thermal sensations and calculated predicted mean vote (PMV) from the measurements for the majority of the waiting hall of high-speed railway station. This finding implies that the calculation of PMV is not suitable for the situation in air conditioned waiting hall of high-speed railway stations. The results also show that the length of time a respondent staying in the waiting hall also have effect on the rule of the thermal comfort.
