Travel Tip

You can also consider taking a flight. However, there is no airport in Suzhou. If you would like to take a flight to shorten the journey duration, you can consider taking a flight from either Shanghai or Wuxi.

Over 10 pairs of flights operate between Shanghai and Lanzhou every day and the journey duration is about 3 hours. The full airfare is about 1,750 CNY (247 USD).

However, you can check to see if there are any discounts in advance. Sometimes, you can find very good discounts, such as 90% off in May 2020. The price is even lower than for train tickets.
