Most of the main sights are at the edge of town. Taxis are cheap and start at Y7; the smaller taxis are Y6. The area from the southern entrance of Slender West Lake Park on Da Hongqiao Lu to the City Museum can easily be covered on foot and it’s a pleasant walk.
Bus 8 runs from the west bus station to the long-distance bus station, and then makes its way up Guoqing Lu to the north of the city. Bus 5 takes you from the long-distance bus station to Huaihai Lu, Youyi Lu then terminates near Daming Temple.
