Tips for you
The new station is lovely! HUGE! The taxi queue is still horrendous! I'd say line up a driver. My favorite is Jerry. You can find him here http://www.hangzhoutaxi.com/. Speaks excellent English
My favorite bus line 7/K7 starts from here - a beautiful ride take you to most major sightseeing spots around the west lake and all the way to Linyin template. A good option when there is no taxi
