Asked by sonja on Jul. 27, 2014
Lussie Lu (Jul. 28, 2014) replied:
Dear sonja, There is only one train from Guangzhou to Suzhou, it takes about 22 hours, it costs about CNY388/US$63 for hard sleeper and CNY686/US$112 for soft sleeper. You could also take a flight to Shanghai, then take a train to Suzhou. It takes about 2.5 hours by plane and half an hour by bullet train or high speed train to Suzhou from Shanghai. According to the 5 star hotel in Suzhou, I suggest you stay in Pan Pacific Suzhou Hotel. Most our clients who stayed there gave a good feedback.

Asked by koshila on Jun. 16, 2014
Lussie Lu (Jun. 17, 2014) replied:
Dear koshila, It costs about CNY500/US$81. It is too expensive, i suggest you take a bus or a train to Suzhou railway station, then take a taxi to the hotel. Furthermore I don't know the contact number of a driver. If you still need a taxi to Suzhou hotel directly, you could find a driver when you arrive at Shanghai airport.

Dear Would you like to go to the Gate of the Orient in Suzhou? If so, you could take Line 1 subway from People square stop(人民广场站) to Shanghai railway station stop, then take a high speed train. It takes about half an hour by train. At last, take Line 2 subway to Guangji south Road stop(广济南路站), change to Line 1 subway and get off at the Gate of the Orient stop(东方之门站).
