Wuxi 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.
Traveling by bus around Wuxi is cheap and easy. Like anywhere else in China, it can be an interesting experience in itself.
Taxis around Wuxi are plentiful and reliable, and are an excellent way to move around the city quickly. You will rarely have to wait for more than a minute to hail a taxi. 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.
