How to get to the Lingyin Temple from Hangzhou city center and West Lake area

  • I recommend hailing a taxi to Lingyin Temple. It is not too far from the city center and the fares are quite reasonable at 20-30 RMB ($3-4) from the downtown area, and ~15 RMB ($2) from the West Lake area
  • But if you have time, you can also take public buses that are very very cheap at just 3RMB (50 cents US)
  • From the city center area, the best buses to take are:
  • Y2 (游2): leaves from the railway station, then goes around the southern part of the West Lake, before going to the final stop at Lingyin Temple. Look for "游2" on the bus
  • 7 (7路): also leaves from the railway station, then goes around the northern part of the West Lake before going to the final stop at Lingyin Temple
  • Map of all the stops of buses Y2 and 7. Yellow pins are route 7 stops, red pins are Y2 stops, and green pins are stops that both of them make
