Topic From: Shanghai Shopping
I am planning a trip to Shanghai sep 12-18Can you tell me anything about the SSAW hotel? How faris it from nanjing road/ bund etc or what shopping areas are closeto this hotel?Thank you
SSAW hotel Shanghai is a 4 star hotel, located at No.839 People Road, Huangpu district, near Yu Garden Market and Huaihai Road commercial area. The traffic is convenient. The subway station of Line 8 and line 10 is near the hotel. It is easy to take line 10 subway to Nanjing Road (about 10 minutes) and the bund is not far from Nanjing Road.
As we don't have any clients using this hotel, I am not sure if the service and facilities are good enough. I searched the feedback from tripadvisor, most of the clients who have stayed there are satisfied with the hotel. You could get the details on this website.

I must use the west or north or south station in Beijing.Thanks for your assistanceLeoncio Sau
Dear Leoncio Sau,
Beijing railway station is near the airport and Shanghai railway station is near Nanjing Road. But most of D trains and G trains set off at Beijing south station and arrive at Shanghai Hongqiao railway station. There are about three trains from Beijing railway station to Shanghai railway station.
Beijing south station is about 37 km from the ariport, it takes about 50-60minutes by taxi, Beijing railway station is about 27 km from the airport and it takes about 30-40 minutes by taxi. It won't affact your itinerary.
Shanghai Hongqiao station is far from Nanjing Road, you could take line 2 subway to Nanjing Road station directly.
To make sure you could catch your flight, you'd better arrive in Beijing before 10:00am. You need to arrive at the airport 2-3 hours before departure time.

Topic From: Yangzhou Transportation
Hi, China Highlights! I am a businessman based in HK and for a year have been travelling regularly to my partner in Yangzhou. As I do not speak Chinese I have always travelled with my Mandarin-speaking accountant. I would now like to attempt the trip on my own. So far I have used various options: flight to Shanghai then bullet train south, flight to Nanjing then private car to Yangzhou, etc. I would like to try flying to Nanjing then getting the ''shuttle'' to Yangzhou. Is it a bus or a train and how easy would it be for me to get to the ''shuttle'' from the airport? Kindest regards, Gregor
