Topic From: Jiaxing Transportation
Hi Lynn.. I would like to know how i book a car/bus to take me from Jiaxing - Shanghai around 1am at night. How much and how do I book? I appreciate any help you might offer. Thanks.
We don't have a local agency in Jiaxing and I regret that we could not arrange a transfer for you.
I searched the information on line, the cost is about CNY400/US$65 per car at least. As you will set off at night, I am not sure if the driver will like to go to. I suggest you ask the staff of the hotel to arrange it for you.

Topic From: Xilamuren grassland
Hi, could i enquire on the means to arrive at the grassland once i reach hohot railway station? I will be taking a train over from shanghai.
Hi, there are some local hostels around the scinc spot, the condition is simple and they might not know English. You also could rent a tent, but I think it's tired for you to stay in a rent.
I suggest you book a 1-2 days tour with travel agency from Hohot, they will arrange the transport, accomodation and English speak guide for you.
Hi Lussie, thanks for the directions. As for accomodations in the xilamuren grasslands, what is the norm of visiting tourists? I am considering the options of staying for a night, and from forums i read that you could stay with the locals or rent a tent for the night.
You could take a bus to Zhaohe (召河）from bus station which is near the railway station. It takes about 2 hours and it is about 90 km. The cost is about CNY25/US$4 per person. You will arrive at Xilamuren grassland.
