I am planning a trip which starts in jiangsu, the goes to zhengzhou, finishing with the Great Wall. What would be the best way to travel to these areas and how long does it take? Many thanks for any advice. Dan
Hi Dan, Jiangshu is a very big province. I recommend Suzhou to you. Suzhou is famous for its typical Chinese gardens. You can travel from Suzhou to Zhengzhou by bullet train. It takes about 6 hours. There are many bullet trains between Zhengzhou and Beijing either. It takes about 3 hours. Please let me know your travel date. So I can tailor made an itinerary for you.

train services between shanghai pudong international airport to zhengzhou, can i buy tickets on arrival in china and get aseat, how easy it is?
Dear Sir or Madam, You need to go to Shanghai railway station or Hongqiao railway station from Pudong airport for taking a train to Zhengzhou. Some bullet trains set off from Hongqiao airport, it takes about 7-8 hours. You could take line 2 subway to Hongqiao railway station. Train is a main transportation in China, most Chinese people will choose this way, so I suggest you buy it in advance. Lussie Lu replied on 2013-03-08
