Studying at XJTLU gives you the opportunity to explore other parts of China, which can be reached by the national high-speed rail network, or by long distance coach. Alternatively, you can take flights to domestic and international destinations.
The high-speed train network connects Suzhou to most of China’s main cities, including Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, and Beijing. Trains regularly depart from Suzhou’s three main train stations: Suzhou Railway Station, Suzhou Industrial Park Railway Station, and Suzhou North Railway Station. Tickets can be purchased with a copy of your passport at outlets in near campus, directly at the train station, or via booking and payment apps.
Coaches from Suzhou North and South bus stations offer a cheaper alternative to the high-speed trains, operating to most nearby cities.
There are three airports located near to Suzhou: Wuxi Airport (one hour by car), Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (one hour by car) and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (two hours by car). Airport coaches operate from Suzhou Industrial Park to both Shanghai airports (twice-hourly between 06:00 and 20:30). You can also take the high-speed train directly to Shanghai Hongqiao Airport (20 minutes from Suzhou Industrial Park high-speed train station).
