What is the best way to travel from Suzhou to Hangzhou?

Hello,

My wife and I are going to be taking a 2 1/2 week vacation to China this June.

We would like to know what is the best way to travel from Suzhou to Hangzhou.

Train, bus, or private driver? We are open to any of the options and please provide any details or recommendations.

Thanks,

Brian

In the past, it was the bus. But new direct highspeed trains now run between the two (through Shanghai, but not stopping there) in about 2 hours. Making it competitive with the bus.

We recently returned from a trip to China that included a trip from Suzhou to Hangzhou. It was by train via Shanghai ( stopping there, no change). It was obviously not the high speed as it took 3 1/2 hours. I would discourage bus trips having seen the insane drivers in China ( I was also told by locals that trains are safer than buses).
