Hi, is it possible to take a taxi from Suzhou railway station to Zhouzhuang late in the evening? Or at least to Tongli? How much may it cost? I arrive at Suzhou around 22:00 (10 PM) and would like to visit one of these two villages early in the morning before most tourists come, that''s why I''d like to sleep there a night before. Thanks!

From our previous experience, taking taxi from Suzhou railway station to Zhouzhuang will take about 40 mins at the expense of about 150 RMB. However, we strongly do not recommend a taxi transfer in the late evening since it is too dangerous for foreigners. For your convenience, taking a private transfer would be the safest way. In this way, you will be picked up at your arrival place in Suzhou and be escorted to Zhouzhuang directly. One way transfer takes 40 mins. The whole round-way transfer takes 1.5 hours. You could rest relaxingly during the transfer, without worrying about any uncertainty. China Highlights can not only offer the private transfer service but also a hotel booking service or even a customized tour according to your requirements. If you need our service, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind regards, Kevin.

Dear Wilianto Aulia, I am Cecilia, a trip advisor of China Highlights, thank you for your question. Following are the issues you concern about: 1. You ‘d pay CNY800 to rent a car from airport to Ibis xiasha hotel. 2. It is CNY1700 for a car rental one day tour in Hangzhou by 18 seats Toyota including a driver and an English guide. 3. The car rental price to Hangzhou - Suzhou – zhouzhuang - shanghai depends on the days you rent; it is CNY2000 per day including a driver and an English guide. Note: 1.We are not provide car rental separately due to all our drivers can’t speak English, so he can’t solve the problems during the tour. 2. You can only use the car 8 hours a day, the fee which surpasses the specified time is CNY100 per hour and CNY50 per hour for the guide. By the way, could you please let me know have you fixed the itinerary yet? I am willing to assist the China tour for your all.
