Hi, we are moving to Changshu in August to teach.
Have googled Changshu but keep finding Changzou..does anyone have any helpful info on Changshu please.
We will be landing at Shanghai Airport, and need to know how to get to the place first:)
Then does anyone know of any websites (Chinese doesn't matter) for renting apartments in Changshu.
Thanks for any help in advance

After you landed on Pudong airport in Shanghai, take an airport shuttle to Hungqiao airport (this airport has been changed to becoming the terminal of high speed train for Shanghai). Then buy a train ticket there from a ticket machine to Changzhou, taking you about 30-40 mins to reach Changzhou. This is the quickest/cheapest way to get Changzhou. Good luck!

alexss, NOT Changzhou but Changshu (belongs to Suzhou).
BTW: Changzhou has direct shuttle-bus to Pudong-Airport.
"jools2002" could take coach from Pudong Airport direct to Changshu.

Sorry, jools2002, I was mixed up about the two cites. Laopi is right and you for your correction!
To get Changshu from Pudong Airport, you can only take a shuttle or bus or taxi (a close 2-hours riding), but the most convenient way is taking a shuttle directly from the airport. There is no train running between Pudong and Changshu--- the city is not along a railway. There is only 120 km around from airport to CS.
Take Laopi's suggestion.
