Jiangsu Province Transportation Guide
The Wuxi train station is conveniently located just outside the Central Business District, and a short 8 yuan taxi ride from most locations around the city. Many city buses also have a terminus right outside the station. Express buses heading to other provinces also leave from the bus station alongside the railway station.
Being an important regional economic hub and the capital of Jiangsu Province, Nanjing is easy to access by rail. For example, a trip to Beijing can be made overnight on a standard train, or faster on the bullet train. A trip to or from Shanghai takes 2-4 hours depending on the type of train taken.

In fact, if you stand by the road looking lost cab drivers will often honk gently as they pass slowly by to see if you want a ride.
The fare starts at 8 yuan. For most destinations within the city center, 8 yuan will be sufficient. Going somewhere in the outer city limits is likely to cost around 20 – 30 yuan.

Wuxi in total covers a large area, but the actual Central Business District is very compact and easy to navigate on foot. At first it can seem a little confusing, because the city is not designed like a rectangular grid. However, once you can picture the layout of the city from a bird’s eye view, it is quite simple.
