Airport Bus

Bus line “Airport 5” departs from the main train station in the city and provides transportation to the airport.

Taxi

English is not widely spoken in the city so we recommend you have the name of your destination written down in Chinese or use a map to point out where you want to go.

For taxi rides that are over 10 km the taximeter charges 3.6 Chinese yuan per kilometer.
