My plane lands at 22.35 pm, can I get a taxi from wuxi airport to hotel in Suzhou
Please help, or I have to sleep in the airport?
Answered by James from UKRAINE | Oct. 11, 2019 00:02
Well, as I know, most taxi drivers are not willing to go there because of the distance. Thus you are suggested to hire a private car. Or find a hotel nearby the airport and start off in next morning.
