Jetstar will fly from Singapore to Hangzhou

From March onwards, a new flight choice will be available for budget travellers taking off from Singapore. It will fly 3 times a week. Hangzhou the political, economic and cultural center of Zhejiang province. Hangzhou is one of the most renowned and prosperous cities of China for much of the last 1,000 years and it is one of the most important tourist cities in China. Hangzhou is famous for its natural beauty and historical and cultural heritages.

Hangzhou is also a good alternative to travel between Singapore and Shanghai. But be careful, Jetstar and its rival on this route, Air Asia, markets this destination as "Hangzhou (Shanghai) although Hangzhou is located 180 kilometers soutwest of Shanghai. But these 2 cities are well connected with short bus and train travels.

There is a frequent high-speed train between Hangzhou and Shanghai. These trains can travel up to 350 km/h and covers the distance between these two cities in 45 minutes.

There are also direct trains departing for Shanghai from Hangzhou Railway Station but as stated in wikitravel buses are better options compared to normal trains:
For travel to or from Shanghai, the bus has become at times more convenient than the train, as it can be more comfortable if only hard seater train tickets exist, and the buses depart more frequently than trains. From Shanghai, buses depart from the north bus station (Hengfen Lu), the PuDong bus station (Bailianjing, PuDong Nan Lu), and from Xujiahui Bus Station, ticket cost ¥58 (October 2008 price). These buses arrive at the north bus station of Hanzhou.
