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.

Hi Wai, The Stroage locker may be not available at night time. So, you may need to bring the luggage with you to the hotel. For Zhouzhuang hotel, the Yunhai Resort (Yunhai Dujiacun) is suggested. This hotel stands beside beautiful Baixian Lake. This hotel is one of the best choices for those who want to stay over night in Zhouzhuang. Yunhai Resort is about 48km away from Kunshan train station. Yes, taxi is available from the the station to the resort. Regards, Coco

hi Graham, thank you for your inquiry. This is Nora, a trip advisor of China Highlights. Glad to offer you some information. We could arrange a private vehicle and driver to escort you from Shanghai to Zhouzhuang and then transfer you back. The cost is around CNY1100-1500, depending on the date you need the service. Please note the driver won't be able to speak English and the working time is 8 hours. Extra hour will cause extra cost. Please feel free to contact me at nora@chinahighlights.com if you would like to book the service. Please inform the date for the tour. Wish you a wonderful day!

Hi Grace, I am in Suzhou now and would like to spend the day in Lu Zhi, then go directly to Zhou Zhuang to spend the night there. Could you please tell me:1) How can I get from Lu Zhi to Zhou Zhuang? is there a bus?2) If I enter Zhou Zhuang after 9:30pm, I hear that I could enter for free. But if I book a hotel to stay inside, would they ask for me to show prove of having bought ticket to enter the town?3) any recommendations for where to stay in Zhou Zhuang and whether I would need to make a reservation ahead of time?Thanks very much for your help! I plan on travelling there in 1 or 2 days, so a quick response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!Vince

How do I get from Shanghai to Yangzhou and Zhouzhuang? Is it possible to get to Yangzhou from Zhouzhuang? Or is Tongli nicer than Zhouzhunang?Does the express train from Shanghai to Beijing stops anywhere or is it direct?

Candice Song (Apr. 9, 2012) replied:
Dear Anita, Firstly, you can take a long distance bus to get to Yangzhou and Zhouzhuang. Moreover, Tongli is also a Chinese ancient town, which has its own characteristics and cultures that attracts lots of tourists every year. Zhouzhuang is more than a watertown, which also enjoys a long history and is one of Chinese ancient watertown. Last but not least, the express from Shanghai to Beijing isn't a non-stop train, which has many stops, such as Nanjing, Jinan and so on. Hope it helps.

Dear Andy, There is no direct bus from Wuxi to Zhouzhuang. You can take a bus at Wuxi bus station which is near Wuxi railway station to Suzhou bus station. Then take a bus to Zhouzhuagn. It takes about 2-3 hours in total.

Dear Chotikarn Chitchaina, Based on the former date, in the end of the year, the temperature is about 5-10°C. It will be cold and you should take a down jacket. Suzhou is well-known for its ancient gardens. There are some tour packages on our website. You can check it if you are interested in it. Click here:http://www.chinahighlights.com/suzhou/tours.htm As our packages are private tours, I can revise it based on your need. Please feel free to let me know your travel plan.
