What's the fastest way from Hangzhou Railway station (not Hangzhou east) to Shanghai Pudong airport?
Answers (1)
Answered by Bubles from CANADA | Nov. 20, 2018 01:14

You may consider to take a rail to Shanghai Hongqiao first (as there hardly trains to Shanghai station). Then you can take taxi or metro line 2 or airport shuttle bus to PVG airport.

Hangzhou train station
I will touch down in Pudong airport about 3.30pm and take airport bus line 1 to Hongqiao station to Hangzhou.I am staying in Westlake Service apartment at Yuewang Road. Seems like train to hangzhou is limited but nearer to our apartment. But east station has more departures but farther from the apartment. Is travel by taxi expensive? Which station should I choose in term convenient and save time?

Secondly , i need to travel to ningbo from hangzhou. Which station should I choose?

Indeed your hotel is closer to Hangzhou Station, the main station. It is about 2 stops by metro line 1. But East Station is also not hard for transfer, 6 stops by metro line 1. The cloest metro stop, Longxiangqiao, exit D is about 800m away from the hotel. So East station is also convenient to use. If by taxi, maybe around CNY30.

To Ningbo by high speed ride, East station is your only option since all of the rides go from east station.

Longer-Term Bag Storage
Hi, I am trying to find someplace to store a few bags in Hangzhou for 13 days, while we are out of the country. Will the left luggage service accept bags for such a lengthy amount of time?

Answered by Diego | Jun. 19, 2018 04:42

The left luggage at station is used for short time use. Maybe 2 or 3 days may still work but I am afraid 13 days is too long for this service.

Aw, okay, thank you!
