hi,i wanna khow how can i go from yiwu to qingdao?
Dear AliReza, You can take a long distance bus to Qingdao. Take a bus at Binwang bus station (宾王客运中心) which is located at No.221 Binwang Road, Yiwu(义乌市宾王路221号). The bus leaves at 16:00 every day, during 12-13 hours. It costs about ¥300( $46)per person. There is not direct train or flight to Qingdao from Yiwu. If you would like to take a train or a flight, you should go to Jinan firstly, and then go to Qingdao. You can get the details on our website and submit your inquiry directly to book the ticket.
