Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport
Hangzhou (Xiaoshan) Airport has opened a new, large terminal in 2010. This Terminal B now handles all international flights; the old Terminal A is only used for domestic flights.
There's no train connection with Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport.
Car and bus
The airport is situated 27 kilometers east of Hangzhou's city center and 15 kilometers from Xiaoshan. The airport is easily accessible by rental car as the freeway Shanghai-Hangzhou-Ningbo runs directly along the airport and the exit to the airport is clearly signposted.
Several buses run from the airport to Hangzhou and Xiaoshan. There are also long-distance buses to other destinations, including Yiwu, Suzhou and Wuzhen. A bus ticket to Hangzhou's train station costs 20 yuan. More information about the buses at the Ticket Center in the Arrivals Hall.
Car rental Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport
Near the waiting room of the bus station you'll find the counter of one car rental company: Top One. Here you can only rent a car for a short period of a maximum of 7 days.
You can find taxis outside the Arrivals Hall. Make sure the driver switches on the meter. If he doesn't want to, or if the taxi has no meter, make sure to agree on a price beforehand. For the first 3 kilometers you pay 4 yuan, after that the price becomes 2 yuan/km and as of 10 kilometers 3 yuan/km. For 'luxury' taxis you pay a little more.
