hi i am coming from jordan middle east i newly accepted at ningbo university i dont know which airport nearest .and what i have to take from the airport to the university

Hello, usually there is no direct international flight arrving in Ningbo. It's suggested you fly into Shanghai Pudong Airport. Then you could take airport shuttle bus or taxi from Shanghai Pudong to Hongqing Train Station, where you could take high speed train from Shanghai to Ningbo. You could visit here to check on the train schedule:

Form Ningbo Train Station, you could take a taxi to get to the Ningbo University directly.

Hi, what is the best way to travel from Ningbo to Shanghai - train, bus or taxi? I read that the fastest is to take bus / taxi but would there be traffic jam? How much would it cost to hire a taxi since there will be 3 of us? Thank you.
Dear Sir or Madam, It is about 330 km between Shanghai and Ningbo, it takes about 3 hour by bullet train or long distance bus station. It costs about US$19 per person. I suggest you could take a bus or a train. I am not sure the exact price of rent a taxi, but it will be too expensive. It costs about CNY1500/US$240 per car based on the information on line.
