I'm not clear about the size of your luggage. The taxi might fit it or not, but the cab fare is around CNY200-220.

The public transport: You can take bus No.436 from Xinqiao Station to West Coach Station, then transfer to shuttle bus near here (Line West Coach Station) to the airport. It takes around 3 hours with CNY25.

Do you mean the Middle Zhongshan Road in Jiande City? If yes, you can take shuttle bus from Jiande Bus Station. The shuttle bus departs at 7:20, 9:00, 13:10, 16:00. The duration is about 2 hours and the bus fare is about CNY60. I haven't found any public transportation from the Middle Zhongshan Road to Jiande Bus Station, so may be you need to take taxi and the fare may range about CNY70-80.
Answered by Jennifer from INDONESIA | Jun. 12, 2019 07:26

Nope, I mean Zhongshan middle road near west lake. And it's near Ding An Metro Station. Could you advice how to go to airport with public transport ? Because I search from some source, If I'm not wrong some of the station line was not available at the moment. Thank you
Answered by Janos from USA | Jun. 13, 2019 18:07

You can take metro from Ding An Road to Jiangling Road. Get out of the A Exit and walk northeast about 350m to take Shuttle Bus Binjiang Line to the airport. The bus operates from 6:00 to 18:40 with an interval about 1h and the ticket costs about CNY20 per person.

I have a layover of 1hr 55 minutes after flying from Seoul to Hangzhou.
Then I need to go to Kunming... how long on average would it take to go through the quarantine/checks. Is there forms I need to fill out before hand (if so where do I get that from)? Also, where do I go after I get off the plane?
Answers (1)
Answered by Erik from GERMANY | Jun. 02, 2019 23:51

Generally speaking, the transit time needs at least 2.5 hours. Thus I am afraid that your time is not enough. There is no forms to fill in advance and you need to go to in the International Arrival Hall.
