Hi, I need some advice for traveling to Hangzhou during Golden week. Yes, I know this is the worst time to go but the travel plans are already set. Would really appreciate some advice and tips on how to have an enjoyable visit during this time period. Some specific questions:
1. Would it be possible to buy a bullet train ticket at the Shanghai Hongqiao station to Hangzhou station on Oct. 3? Should I try to buy the ticket online?
2. Is http://www.gotohangzhou.com/ a reputable sight to buy show tickets?
3, Should the West Lake be avoided due to crowds?
Thanks in advance!
