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 email@example.comChristy Luo replied on 2013-11-11
