While Hangzhou is primarily a tourist destination thanks to its iconic West Lake, its proximity to Shanghai can make an interesting alternative to flights to Pudong. Almost every ten minutes a train leaves Hangzhou for the 45-70 minute long trip to one of Shanghai’s railway stations, prices are between 10€ and 30€ one way.
Please be aware that you will need a visa to enter China as a EU citizen.
Information & Tips for China
China is the most populous and the third largest country in the world, so naturally, there is a lot to see. The most touristically important cities are the capital of China, Beijing and the financial and trade center Shanghai.
Best Time to Travel
Since the country is vast and extends over several climate zones, there is no best travel time for China. China is connected to Europe through numerous direct flights and the travel time is about 11-13 hours. Flights to China can be found for less than 400€ throughout the year, and there are also often excellent Business Class fares.
A general advice is that travel should be avoided during the Chinese national holidays, which span over the first two weeks of October. During these time tourist destinations are overcrowded with Chinese tourists on their domestic vacation.
Visa for China
Most European citizens will need a visa to enter China.
You can apply for a tourist visa at a Visa Application Service Center (CVASC) in your country. There you’ll hand in your visa application personally and can pick it up again after a few days. There is no faster and cheaper way.
Alternatively, you can apply for a visa by mail. The processing time will be up to two weeks, and you’ll have to pay for extra for shipping.
There are also so-called Visa services available that sometimes offer a faster (and maybe even cheaper) way to get your Visa. Check local sites to find out more.

Information & Tips for Hangzhou
With its iconic West Lake and famous buddhist monasteries, Hangzhou is one of China’s premier cultural destinations. Large recreational areas and a rebuilt historic center make up a huge part of the city center. Excellent train connections to Shanghai (taking less than an hour) make Hangzhou a great alternative when travelling to China’s mega boomtown. But with more than six million inhabitants itself, Hangzhou is a buzzing city worth a visit.
Best Time to Visit
Since Hangzhou is located in a subtropical climate zone, spring and autumn are the best travel times thanks to moderate temperatures and a few rainy days. April, May and September particularly suitable for a visit to the Chinese city thanks to the low rainfall and humidity.
From the airport to the city
Hangzhou Xiaoshan Int’l Aiport enjoys a growing reputation and attracts more international airlines each year. It is approx. 30 kilometers away from downtown Hangzhou and connected through bus and taxi services. Bus services are offered to many points of interest like the East Railway Station (30 Minutes) where bullet trains to Shanghai depart, or the West Lake in the very heart of the city (50 Minutes). Buses cost around 3-5€ while a taxi to downtown Hangzhou takes about an hour, costing 12-15€.

Information & Tips for Chongqing
Thanks to a bit of trickery of the Chinese government, Chongqing is the world's largest city in population as well as size. Officially counting more than 30 million inhabitants, this huge number was artificially inflated by redefining Chongqing's city limits. The city now contains a space roughly the size of Austria. Still, the metropolis in the midst of a mountain range at the banks of the famous Yangzi River is one of China's most important industrial and economical hotspots. As a result, it shares a special administrative status with only Beijing, Shanghai & Tianjin.
Best Time to Visit
Chongqing is part of the subtropical climate zone. This results in hot, humid summers and mild winters, in which temperatures rarely drop below 0 degrees. March and April are great times to visit the city, just before a conflux of heat and daily monsoons make it an unpleasant place to visit.
From the airport to the city
Chongqing Jiangbei Int'l airport is extremely well connected to the city center. Two subway lines (taking about 50 minutes, costing approx. 1€) and a shuttle bus (60 minutes, 2€) take you to downtown Chongqing all day long. Taxi drivers will charge you 7-10€ for the 50-60 minute long ride down to the Yangzi River.
