Update May 11, 2006

Sean shared direction to the site also. Thanks Sean.

Little more direction for those of you that want to take the inter-city buses.

International arrival level is on the ground floor. After picking up your luggage and gone thru the custom check, take the exit, then go all the way to the right. Take the escalator or elevator to level 2 around there, take the over pass #5 or #6 towards the parking lot. (They are side by side) 1/3 way there you will see elevator that will take you to the parking lot below, one level down (top level of the parking structure) you will see a room next to the gated exit (next to the bathroom), that is where they sell the bus tickets.

  1. Is it possible to post up the train schedule too? I’m new to Shanghai and am thinking of going to Hangzhou or Wuxi during the May holidays. I just accessed the chinese website of Shanghai railway but wasn’t able to find any useful information there.

    BTW, a colleague of mine warned me about travelling during the public holidays. How bad is the situation?

  2. Two questions:

    (1) Which bus station in Hongzhou does the bus arrive at?

    (2) Can you also post the schedule from these cities back to PVG, apparently the bus company needs to carry passengers back to make money?

  3. Hi,

    Is this bus schedule current?

    I want to catch the bus to Suzhou, but won’t be able to catch the 18:50 bus. Is there a 19:50 bus?

    What are my other choices? I will have some big pieces of luggage.

    Thx, Scott

  4. Hi, Jianshuo:

    You mentioned that there are buses that go to Suzhou. I want to know whether the bus stop is located in the airport or do I have to take airport shuttle to the cities and then take bus to suzhou. Do you happen to have their phone number so that I can get in contact with bus operators. Good service,

    Thanks a lot.

  5. Thank’s for the helpful site.

    I am a travel agent still learning about your wonderful country.At present I have 2 businessmen arriving in PVG the seventh of september on Qantas ex Sydney at 1815

    and going to TAO from SHA at 2140.

    Is the 3.25 hours enough for the transfer?? is the transfer easy or stressfull with luggage and perhaps a full bus or any other problems ??

    Thank’s in advance

  29. Jian Shuo. great website. Thanks for the bus schedule at the top. Maybe you should start an “inter-city bus” section with the above info. I believe the buses are parked across from the terminal building at the multi level parking. (2nd floor)

    Doris Lau, yes you can catch a bus from PVG to Hangzhou at the airport.

    Hangzhou at 100 RMB per person (may have gone up to 150), with departing time at 10:30 12:00 13:30 15:30 17:30 19:00. I will be taking that bus in a few days. :-) I believe the bus ride about 2 to 3 hours long, depending on the traffic. The bus terminates at the Wonglong athletic center in Hangzhou, you can catch a taxi from there to any hotel.

  30. I would like to travel from Hangzhou to Nanjing via train. What train can I take? Please advise :)

  31. OK, I just got back from my trip in China. The bus ticket from PVD to Hangzhou is still 100RMB. The trip was long, because we were caught in traffic. It took 3:45 to get to Hangzhou and the bus was packed. We had luggage in the isles.

  32. Little more direction for those of you that want to take the inter-city buses.

    International arrival level is on the ground floor. After picking up your luggage and gone thru the custom check, take the exit, then go all the way to the right.

  33. Hi Jian Shuo Wang,

  40. Thank you for your valuable information about Pudong to Nanjing!

    I will arrive 7:55 PM, April 19, 2007 in Pudong Airport. I would like to go Nanjing. I found out bus service is not available after 7:55 PM. I think train is an another option. I don’t have any information train availabilty after 9 or 10:00 PM.

    1. How long take time to Train station from Pudong airport and how can I go to there?

    2. 7:55PM arrive – it may take 1 hour to take out should be 9:00PM – may take 1 hour to go train station, 10:00PM – So, after 10:00 PM, anyone has train information to go Nanjing after 10:00 PM?

    3. I have a ticket 8:55AM April 25, 2007 depart from Pudong airport. Please give me a best recommendation from Nanjing to Pudong airport. Leave Nanjing April 24 afternoon or April 25 early morning, which one is better?

    4. Please give me bus or train information from Nanjing to Pudong airport.

    Best Regards,

  41. Hi!

    This site is really helpful! I’m one of those people who will arrive to Pu Dong airport and has no clue how to get to Hangzhou. I was looking for this info for few days – thanks everyone! Just one question: Sean has described where is the ticket office but I wonder where is the bus stop itself? Can anyone provide this information?

    Thanks

    Alex

  42. Thanks for a great site, lots of useful practical info.

    I want to get from PVG to Huangshan (Tangkou/Wenquan town/village; or more likely Tunxi/HuangshanShi). Is it possible by a direct bus, or to a nearby town? Or is it necessary to take the PVG-Hangzhou buses you describe so well, and then change in Hangzhou?

    I’m told the Hangzhou-Huangshan bus takes 3.5 hours on the new highway. If you know departure times and location in Hangzhou that would be very useful, if I have to make this change!

  43. This site is a good find. It almost always comes up when I search, with relevant or interesting info. Thank you. I have a question. What are the boats running between Suzhou and Hangzhou like? I have parents-in-law coming out and thought it might be a fun time-saving way to go but so far I’ve failed to find any details of the boats themselves. Do they need to be booked in advance?

  44. @Emily, I know there are boats connecting Hangzhou and Suzhou, but I didn’t personally try it. I will look for some information and put it onto my site later (but don’t expect that 100% happen)

  45. I will be at shanghai within 2 days for visiting Shanghai New International Expo center and I want to go Hangzhou by bus or train.

    It is need to book early to travel Hangazhou from Shanghai or can I get the ticket from the Railway station or bus station directly.

    Please inform the distance between the Expo Centre and Shanghai Yuanbo Hotel. Which local train is going to Expo centre or which railway station is near to hotel.

  46. dear,

    How can I find a timetable online for buses from Hangzhou to Suzhou? How frequently do these buses run?

    if still have any Alternative to Suzhou?

    thanks

  47. Hi there,

    I am planning to travel from Hangzhou to Huangshan for three days in May. Is by bus the best way to travel or by train can be an optional too? If by bus, do you have the current bus timetable for both way? Thanks a lot.

  48. Hi Thanks for this wonderful website. Am planning to arrive at PVC and travel to Hangzhou. Is there a train? What means can I use and how much does it cost me?
