Hangzhou is a city with a rich historical heritage and splendid cultures, also one of the seven ancient capitals in China. Its beauty lies in its charming lakes and green mountains as well as in its profound history and culture. About 4,000 – 5000 years ago, the Liangzhu Civilization emerged in that area.

The tranporation choice is good. Most D or G trains from HZ to SH will arrive in Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station, only a few directly to Shanghai Railway Station, likely at 6am, 1pm and 4pm. So, if get to hongqiao Station, you should take Subway Line 2 to the city center. You can buy the ticket in the ticket office in downtown area or the train station. If you don't leave very early in the morning, no need to buy in advance. Well, you should not travel in our publich holidays also. According to the room rate, you can choose Home Inn, Jinjiang Inn. They have chains in each city.
