Ningbo Lishe Airport to the city
Which alternative is best, time-wise and cost-wise, from Lishe Airport to Sofitel Hotel on Siming Middle Road, Yinzhou district:
(1) taxi
(2) Metro Line 2 --> Passenger Transport Center station, then taxi
(3) Airport Shuttle --> Passenger Transport Center station, then taxi (I assume shuttle is less frequent and slower than Metro Line 2, am I right?)
(3) Metro Line 2 --> Shiqi station, then taxi
Thank you so much?

Upon landing, take metro line 2 to Shiqi Station, Exit C. Then take public bus no.176 to Middle Siming Road Tiantong Road Crossing. Walk west around 250 meters to find your hotel.
