      Hi, We are arriving from Ulan Bhator at Beijing central station and need to get to Beijing airport for an onward flight to Japan. I have done research into transfers but all the details are from a variety of stations, none of which are referred to as the central station. Can any one help with the name of the station? Also any tips of a quick transfer would be great as we have just under 3 hours to get from the station to the airport (which l understand is about 30 km so should be doable - if l have the right station!)

      Many thanks

    • Suzhou Grand Canal Cruise

      by tansteven22 Online Now Nov 8, 2011 at 6:26 PM

      Hi, I would appreciate it if someone can help me in this. My family will be in Suzhou next week and we would like to take the Grand Canal Cruise. I have been reading postings from various sites and this makes me confused. Some recommended to take the cruise in front of Tiger Hill. Others said that cruise starts at Shuishang Lvyou Wharf. But I could not find the location of Shuishang Lvyou Wharf on the Suzhou map. Yet another site advises that "guests should purchase tickets at the port beside Renmin Bridge within the central urban space of Suzhou. the value is CNY35 per person, and therefore the cruise lasts for concerning eighty minutes".

      Any advise on exact location to take the cruise is most appreciated.

      Side (daily trips) from Shanghai

      by KaterinaJordan Online Now Sep 14, 2011 at 7:51 AM

      Hi all,

      We are planning to visit Shanghai on March 2012 and stay for 9 days there.

      Our plans for side trips is to spend 2 days. We are interesting to visit "water towns", see picturesque canals, old houses and gardens, take a boat ride etc.

      A draft plan is one day to Hangzhou and the other one to Suzhou.

      What are your proposals?

      I read that Zhanghzou is a tourist trap. What other villages can be combined with Suzhou and how we can go fm Suzhou there?
      What is your opinion about Tongli, Nanxun?

      Also is it cheaper to buy silk fm these towns than in Shanghai?

    • Tongli instead of Souzhou

      by carlos40 Online Now Sep 6, 2009 at 11:06 AM

      Hi, in October I want to go by night train from Beijing to Souzhou and than take a morning bus to Tongli, where I want to stay 2 or max. 3 nights. I expect Tongli to be a little bit smaller than Souzhou, which I would prefer, because after Tongli I will continue to Shanghai. Is Souzhou a must? I have already seen gardens in Beijing and I'm not such a garden fan. I would prefer to see a typical water town with all the little bridges and waterways. If I stay for 3 nights I even could do a daytrip back to Souzhou but concerning my interests a daytrip to Xitang would be maybe better. Or does Souzhou offer better views of a typical water town (brideges, canals) than Tongli and Xitang?.

      Suzhou Silk Festival

      I understand there is a silk festival in Suzhou each year in September. We will be there on September 13. Will there be any festivities? We will only be there for the day, but I'd like to purchase a length of silk fabric as a souvenir to make something back at home. Does this sound possible? Or is it very expensive for a bolt of cloth, maybe a few yards/feet/metres? Where is the best place to go to bargain for a good deal on a decent length of silk cloth? Thanks!
