What is the best way to get from Dalian to Qinhuangdao?
As i know, there is no direct ferry boat or train from Dalian to Qinhuangdao. You could take the train to Shanhaiguan (25km to Qinhuangdao) then connect the bus to Qinhuangdao. Train schedule: T131(Dep. 12:02-19:20) or K7349(Dep. 14:01-22:01). Karen Karen Yang replied on 2011-03-10
