Shanghai to Hangzhou/Hangzhou to Shanghai Bullet Train

Shanghai Terminus: Hongqiao Railway Station; Shangahi Railway Station
Hangzhou Terminus: Hangzhou East Station

The best way to travel between Shanghai and Hangzhou is by a bullet train. There are plentiful bullet trains running on the Shanghai-Hangzhou High Speed Rail Line. This line was put into use in October 2010, making a train ride between Shanghai and Hangzhou shortened to only 44 minutes.

The new line travels between the Shanghai Hongqiao Station (上海虹桥) and Hangzhou East Station (杭州东站). The trains travel the 150 kilometer distance in about 45 minutes. It reaches a top speed of about 350 kilometers an hour or 217 miles an hour. About 150 trains travel between the city each day, and the passengers travel on several different models of trains. One of the models is China’s first Chinese-designed train to travel at that speed. Tickets between the Shanghai Hongqiao Station and Hangzhou cost about 73RMB to 220 RMB ( 12 dollars to 35 dollars) depending on the class.

Along with frequent departures, part of what makes the new line convenient for travel between Hangzhou and Shanghai is that the Hongqiao Station is next to Shanghai’s International Airport, and it is on Shanghai’s Subway Line 2. Also, if you miss your train, you can easily get a replacement ticket at a window and catch a train soon after.
