Getting There While most travelers arrive in Hangzhou by rail—it’s just 45 minutes from Shanghai on a high-speed train—flying is another option. Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan Airport is serviced by budget airlines from across Asia and a few European destinations; a handy 72-hour visa-free policy extends to transiting air passengers from more than 50 countries.
