    Can we rent a taxi, from the Railway station, for 5 persons for one day to take us around Suzhou. Are there Buick/mini vans available at the taxi stands in Railway station? What is the cost for one day from railway station to go around Suzhou and then send us back to the railway station at the end of the day?

  6. Daniel says:

    Hello Emily,

    There are no Buick/mini vans available at the taxi stands, just normal 4-seated cars of Santana, Passat and Zhonghua. You have to take two taxis. For 6-8 hour taxi hire, it costs about RMB 300. For money saving, we suggest you hail a taxi when necessary instead of renting a taxi since Suzhou is a walkable city for the dowmtown old city area. The buses going to Suzhou Railway Station are available in many places, no worry about transportation in Suzhou.
