Pudong Airport to Suzhou
Is there a high speed bullet train from Pudong Airport direct to Suzhou ? I should be landing around 2pm
2017-12-07 00:01
Hello Gary,

Thank you for the good question. There is no bullet train directly from Shanghai Pudong Airport to Suzhou city at present. However, if you want to experience the high speed train, you could take the maglev train or local subway from Pudong Airport to get to Shanghai Railway Station or Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station for 1-1.5 hours and take a 30 minutes long high speed train to Suzhou. Besides, there are also many daily distance coaches from this airport to Suzhou, as you may land around 2 pm, you could choose the coach that starts at around 14:50、15:20、16:10, and that needs about 3 hours, besides, other schedules are available at around 16:50、17:20、18:10、18:50、19:40、20:30、and 21:00.

Enjoy your trip to Suzhou.

Hi Chai,
Thank you for the good question. Every day, there are about 22 daily bullet G-trains from Hangzhou to Suzhou City. The trains start during 07:38 ~ 20:43 and needs to cover about 1.5-2 hours. And the prices are RMB111.5, RMB 178.5 and RMB 341.5 for the Second Class Seat, First Class Seat and Business Class Seat. Considering the expenses, distance, traveling time, and traffic jam, most people choose to take the bullet train as the most convenient way to go between those two hot tourist cities.
Wish you a wonderful day!
