thanks so much

the following is what I know about trains:

Nantong-Nanjing: train takeoff 14:28 or 18:40 or 15:24 (from nantong to Chuangqin, passing nanjing), rmb 44 for a hard seat, take 4 hrs around to Nanjing

Nantong-Shanghai or Suzhou: All trains of Nantong-Shanghai will pass Suzhou station. takeoff 5:55 am, take 6 hrs to Suzhou, 7 hrs to Shanghai. for a hard seat, coast less than rmb 100 to Shanghai, rmb70 something to Suzhou.

Nantong does not have train to Hangzhou, you have to arrive in Suzhou or Shangzhou, then transfer to another train or bus. But you also take transfer train in Nanjing, which has the Nanjing-Hangzhou Railway connecting two cities.

Lots of bus to these cities as well, Nantong to shanghai, about rmb50

Good luck

Nantong is a city located on the northern bank of Yangzi river, facing Shanghai. The other cities you asked are all are located on the southern bank of the river.There is no bridges available now between the city and Shanghai untill the Nantong-shanghai Yangtze Bridge possiblly opens in 2008, so that you have to take a ferry to cross the river now, taking about 20-30 min.

To Suzhou, you could either take a bus to shanghai first then to shzhou, or take a bus by crossing a Yangtze river bredge between Wuxi and Taizhou, the Jiangyin yangtze bridge.

To Nanjing, it'd better taking a train and its is the quickest way.

I live in Nantong.

By public transport best way to most places is by bus.

By bus:
NT-SH = around 3 hours
NT-SZ = 2.5 - 3 hours
NT-HZ = 5 hours
NT-NJ = 4 hours

The Sutong bridge opens in April but it won't carry trains. It should cut the travelling time to SH/SZ by about half an hour.

Trains go through Nanjing as they can't get across the river. No point getting train to SH/SZ. Train to NJ is about 4 hours. Train to HZ goes overnight and also goes to YiWu.

OMG no Soft seat (软座)? Travel by soft seat if you can, long journies with hard seat (standard) is really not great! Food on trains can be ok, nothing special, pretty basic, but ok! They also have sleepers, go for soft again if you can! Even softbeds are not soft! I like to stay in Western style hotels and ask for a western style (soft) bed, my wife says it is bad for our back, but I don't care, as standard hotel beds in China are like sleeping on the floor! Hotel Tip: Ask for an extra duvet and lay ontop of it, makes the bed a little softer!

Tip: Try to go to the toliet before you get on the train, like at your hotel and always take pocket tissues everywhere you go, as paper is never provided!
