Coming and Going
Yangzhou is not connected by rail, but it is easily accessible. A bus journey from Shanghai takes about 3.5 hours; from Suzhou, about 2.5 hours, from Nanjing about 1 hour.
If you go into Yangzhou from Shanghai or Suzhou, you will pass the 3,740-metre-long Jiangyin Changjiao Daqiao, the longest bridge over the Yangzi River in China.
The nearest airport is at Nanjing - tickets can be booked at major hotels.
City transport is convenient, for most public buses run from 06:00 to 18:00. Taxis are cheap: Starting price of RMB5 or 6.
The bus guide for some substantive scenery spots of Yangzhou: The west bus station (Bus No.21)- Slender West Lake (Bus No.1) - Ge Garden - He Garden (Bus No.19) - the west bus station The Taxi: The started price is RMB5, and it costs less than RMB1O to get to any scenery spot you prefer to go to in the scope of the city.

I've searched some information from internet and also contacted our Jiangsu agent, sorry to tell you that they don't know more about the prison camp you mentioned, since Yangzhou had changed a lot with time. However, our Nanjing agent told me that they will try their best to get more information about C prison camp, and I will get back to you once I got anything about it. Meanwhile if you could give us more information, it will be more helpful.
You said you would like to come to China later this year, and you are in Australia if I am right. Please kindly note that it is winter in China now, the weather will get more colder in the following month, I know you are both at a age of 80 years, so you are suggested to come to China at a warmer time, such as spring or summer next year, do you think so? For your group, your safety and healthy will be my big concern, and your comfort is our priority.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further contact.

Hi Leila, from Hangzhou to Yangzhou is about 300km, 4hrs by car. If we arrange a car and a driver for you, it would be very expensive. I suggest that you take a taxi to Hangzhou North Bus Station 杭州汽车北站fist, then take a bus to Yangzhou.
