Best way to get to to Wuzhen Water Village from Hangzhou

  • Because there's no direct trains between these two cities, coach buses are the best way to travel between Hangzhou and Wuzhen
  • From Hangzhou city center, the most popular bus to Wuzhen leaves from the Hangzhou Bus Station, located in the Jiubao neighborhood
  • The cost is 30 RMB (around $4 US) each way
  • This bus station is right next to subway line 1's (red line) Coach Center Station (客运中心). Get out from exit B at this subway station
  • I can't remember if there's a bus number for this bus, but at this station it should be very easy to find it. Just look for signs or ask around
  • The bus to Wuzhen from this station leaves every ~20-30 minutes and takes 1.5-2 hours to get to Wuzhen Bus Station. From Wuzhen bus station you can use city bus K350 to get to the scenic area
  • First bus is at 6:25am and last bus is at 6:15pm from Hangzhou to Wuzhen
  • Return bus from Wuzhen to Hangzhou runs between 6:40am to 6:25pm, same price and frequency
  • If you're at Hangzhou's Xiaoshan airport and want to go to Wuzhen from there, there is a direct shuttle to Wuzhen so you don't need to make your way to Hangzhou Bus Station first
  • Fare is 42 RMB for this shuttle each way
  • It takes 2 hours each way
