hi Lussie Lu
thank you for your reply
You can buy the train ticket at ticket office which is near Longyang road station. You can take Maglev train or Line 2 subway to get there. The working time is from 8:00am to 18:00pm. If you can't find this office, you also can take Line 2 subway to Hongqiao railway station directly to buy the ticekts.
In general, the tickets will be issued 7-12 days before the departure date.
There are many trians from Suzhou to Hangzhou every day, it is easy to purchase the ticket. You can buy it on the day.

I have limited time to tour Suzhou. If you have to choose only one garden in Suzhou due to time constraint, which one do you recommend? Thanks.

Topic From: Suzhou Attractions
I intend to visit Suzhou from Shanghai for a day trip in 3rd week of March 2012. There are 3 or 4 of us. Instead of taking the tour from Shanghai, can we just meet the tour guide at Suzhou High Speed Train station. Then we can either stay that night at Suzhou, travel to Hangzhou in the same evening, by the high-speed train again. If this arrangement possible, or it is advisable to go back to Shanghai for the night, before travelling out to Hangzhou the next day.

What is the best route to take when flying into Suzhou from Sydney International Airport?
Asked by Pauline Koroi on Feb. 6, 2012
It takes about 1.5-2 hours for car transfer and the bullet train would only take about 30 minutes.

How long does it take to go from Shanghai to Suzhou by car or bullet train?
Hi Pauline Koroi, there is no airport in Suzhou, you could fly from Sydney to Shanghai first and then take bullet train from Shanghai to Suzhou. Wish you a nice journey!
