what is the time from shanghai hongqiao to zhouzhuang by coach and what is the price
Dear christina, There is no direct coach at Hongqiao airport. You need to take line 2 subway to Xujing station, then go to Xujing bus station(徐泾东枢纽站) to take Xuzheng line(徐蒸专线) getting to Qingpu(青浦). From Qingpu bus station take a bus to Zhouzhuang bus station. It costs about CNY20/US$3.5 per person. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-04-14

We arrive at Wuxi East Station at about 22.00 and need transportation to Double Three Hilton Hotel at Gao Lang rd. What kind of transportation do you suggest? We''re in group of 21 person. How far is the distance from the station to the hotel and how long does it take? Are taxis still available at that time? How much will it cost? Also how far is the hotel from 3 kingdom city? Thank you in advance.
 

Hi Shirly,

 

This is Christy from China Highlights Travel, i am happy to help you.

 

There is no direct bus from East Train Station to Hilton Hotel. You can take taxi. But the taxi is 5 seats including driver. Thus you will hire 6 taxies. But it is very hard if you take too much luggage. We can provide a pick-up service for you. Price is USD19 each. Please contact with me at christyluo@chinahighlights.net

Dear Nancy, There is no direct bus from Wuxi train station to the Wuxi East train station, you can take a taxi there. It takes about RMB60 and 40 minutes.
