I'm Jody. I need your help on getting to Nanjing from California.
I noticed that there are several ways to get to Nanjing. Among them, I find 2 options most desirable: (1) flying to Nanjing, (2) flying to Shanghai and taking the fast train to Nanjing (2 hrs?).
Option (1) sounds convenient, but most flights I've looked take about 20 plus hours (with 1 stop). This sounds very exhausting and cost more than Option (2).
Option (2) sounds simple enough, but I read that this travel method might be difficult with a lot of luggage. I'll be packing for about a month-long stay. Is Shanghai Railway Station connected to the Shanghai Pudong airport? Is Option (2) a viable option for me?
I'd greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.
