Topic From: Shanghai Weather
I would like to do a Yangtze river cruise and cannot decide if early April is better than late September or early October? Please advise. Also which of these months stay lighter later. Thanks
Asked by Pat Ford on Apr. 11, 2014
Dear Pat Ford,
It is good time to take a Yangtze river cruise in early April and late September. In April, the level of water is not enough as that in September, but the cost will be lower than in Sep., it is also cool than in September.

how to go Nanhui Peach blossom festival from Pudong AirPort? And how long it drom there?
Asked by lily on Apr. 8, 2014
Thank you for your inquiry.
The Nanhui Peach blossom village(南汇桃花村) is about 20km away from the airport,as there is no direct transportation, I suggest that you take a taxi there. The cost for taking a taxi is about CNY80/USD13.

Topic From: Suzhou Transportation
I will be in Suzhou next week and like to get from there to Shanghai City Center. I have also two large suit cases with me. Are there any buses going this way? If yes which bus station in Suzhou should I take? If not what would you recommend? One more question, how much would cost a taxi from Suzhou to Shanghai Bund ?
Asked by Flor on Apr. 4, 2014
the taxi is about RMB4500 or so for 1.5 hours by highway. But the most economic and fastest way is take bullet trains. There are many bullet trains everyday and easy to buy. It iis only take RMB60 for seats in the first class cabin, only 30 minutes to Shanghai Train staiton. Then you can take subway line 2 to The Bund or Centrel area. If big suitcases is not t very convenient, you can go to the station earily. Good Luck.

Topic From: Shanghai Weather in April
We will be arriving in Shanghai by overnight sleeper train from Xian. We need to transfer to Hangzhou. I understand we would have to change railway stations, so I am wondering if it would be better to just take a taxi from the railway station straight to our hotel in Hangzhou. We are 4 people. What do you think?
Asked by Sue Allen on Apr. 2, 2014
Dear Sue Allen,
There are two trains from Shanghai railway station, setting off at 18:08pm and 8:08am. If you could book these train, you don't need to change the railway station.
If these can't suits your need, you could go to Shanghai long-distance bus station(上海长途汽车客运总站） which is near Shanghai railway station for taking bus to Hangzhou directly. The buses are available from 7:00am to 19:40pm. It takes about 3 hours.
