Is the Shaolin temple open on Friday, Dec. 27, 2013? Also, what are best travel options from Hangzhou to Dengfeng on Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013? How long by train?
Dear Tim, Shaolin Temple opens every day. There is no train from Hangzhou to Dengfeng. You could take a bullet train from Hangzhou to Zhengzhou, it takes about 7 hours. Then take a bus from the bus station to Dengfeng, which is near the train station, it takes about 2 hours. At last take another bus to get to Shaolin Temple. You also could take an overnight train from Hangzhou to Luoyang, it takes around 15 hours, then take a bus from Luoyang bus station to Shaolin Temple directly, which is near the train station. It takes about 2 hours. Lussie Lu replied on 2013-08-06
