Travel by bus from Huangshan back to Shanghai

Hi ,

Can anyone tell me just how long does the bus take from Tunxi-Shanghai and is it a fairly comfortable ride ? Is it an interesting way/interesting counryside to travel back to Shanghai or not really ?

Thanks for any advice,

Cheers , Fran

I would not do that. The train is much better. Even the old trains would be better.

Not sure why you insist on the bus. Just take the train from Huangshan to Shanghai. I am in Huangshan right now and even the train is no fun.

No need to take the overnight train. Take one of the many trains to Nanjing which takes 5 hours then take the one hour fast train to Shanghai. Just need to change train station via subway in Nanjing.

I will do my trip report in a couple of days when I am back home in Beijing.
