We are 4 adults that need to get from Luoyang to Zhengzhou Airport. Any suggestions?
Dear Barb, You could take a train from Luoyang to Zhengzhou, it takes about 1.5 hours. Then go to Zhengzhou Hotel, which is near the railway station. Take a shuttle bus to Zhengzhou airport. It takes about 70 minutes, and the bus is available every one hour. It costs about CNY15/US$2.5 per person. Lussie Lu replied on 2014-04-13
