How much the cost for one day trip to shanghai from Hangzhou?
Usually we suggest clients take the fast train from Shanghai to Hangzhou and return (1 hoour journey). Plus the essence one day Hangzhou tour (West Lake, Lingyin Temple, Peak Flown from Afar), for two people's group, it would cost around CNY2300/USD366. I need your passpor picture page to issue the train tickets, so would you please advise your flexible date then i can check the availablity for you?
