Hi. How do we travel from Hong Qiao Shanghai Railway Station to JinMa International Hotel (not palace)? What is the approximate duration?
Dear Mich, You could take a train to Hangzhou railway station or Hangzhou east railway station, which is far from Jinma International hotel. It is more than 10 km. You could take Line 1 subway to Xianghu station(湘湖站)(around half an hour), then take a taxi to the hotel(round 15 minutes, CNY20/US$3 per car). Lussie Lu replied on 2014-03-27

I will be in Hangzhou from 24-26 Dec. what can I do other then watch the Impression West Lake? Does Hangzhou celebrate Christmas? If yes, which club is safe to go?

Hi Winnie, besides Impression West Lake, you can also visit  the West Lake, Lingyin Temple, Six Harmonies Pagoda, Xitang Town, Ancient Village Wuzhen, Peak Flown From Afar, etc.

Christmas is not widely celebrated in China. The young people like it and celebrate it in their own ways. Sorry, I don't know any club for you to go.

This tour program is not too tight, is it?Please advise the duration time to visit each place.Thanks & RegardsSanphet
Hi Sanphet Olarnsiriwat, Yes, no problem, you could take the morning train from Shanghai to Hangzhou and take an evening train back after one day trip there. The time to tour each attraction is about 1-1.5 hours and it is possible for you visit all the attractions you mentioned above. I would like to arrange a day trip in Hangzhou and with the train tickets booking for you. When you want to take the tour? How many people in your group? Regards, Coco Coco Yang replied on 2012-11-28
