There are so many trains shuttle between Hangzhou and Shanghai each day,from early to later night.When do you want to leave Hangzhou for Shanghai?
As for the typically Chinese inn,where do you want it?Hangzhou or Shanghai?

Are you still interested in being my guide and can we go visit gardens and West Lake? I probably only need a guide from Friday noon to Sunday noon. I will make my reservations at a hotel early next week.

Let me know if you are interested and what the price would be for that time period.

thank you.

I presume you're leaving on an international flight from Pudong airport (PVG) at 1755? You'll need to be there by 1555 to check-in. Trains from Hangzhou generally arrive at Shanghai South train station which's about 1+ hour by airport shuttle no.7 (20 RMB) to Shanghai Pudong airport. Thus you'd want to arrive at Shanghai South train station no later than 1330. Best choice would be D660 (1132--1259), 2nd best would be D686 (1059--1218). Other trains would be slower, or would arrive too late for you to get to the airport in time.
Alternatively, you could also take a direct train from downtown Hangzhou (Huanglong Stadium, to be exact) to Shanghai Pudong airport. The journey takes 3+ hours. Taking the 1030 departure should work well for you.
What do you really mean by "typically Chinese inn"?
If you've any more questions, email directly to yahoo.com|ellyse99 and put "TravelChinaGuide" and your own username (eg FosterJr) in the subject line, thanks.

GUEST30117 We are planning to travel by train from Hanoi to Shanghai, mid december 2008.

Does anyone know on which days train k538 from Nanning / Guilin to Shanghai departs? Every day? Where can we buy tickets, in Nanning / Guilin or even in Hanoi?

thanks, Jeroen en Helmi

K538 operates daily. You won't be able to buy tickets in Hanoi, only in Nanning/Guilin depending on where you intend to board the train.
