Quanzhou Transportation


The airport in Quanzhou lies east of Donghuan Road, Jinjiang City, which is only about 12 kilometers (7.45 miles) from Quanzhou. The airport in Jinjiang has launched dozens of flight routes connecting to Beijing, Zhoushan, Shanghai, Nanjing, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Nanchang, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Kunming, Chengdu, Changsha, Xi'an, Wenzhou, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Manila in the Philippines. It has one of the top 50 airport throughputs in China.

Bus 16 in the central city of Quanzhou has a stop at Jinjiang Airport, with a ticket price of 3 RMB. About 100 meters in front of the airport lies a street where people can take buses. Quanzhou is to the right while Shishi is to the left.

If you want to take a taxi, you can bargain over the price. Usually, the price from the center of Quanzhou to the airport is 40 RMB to 50 RMB.


There are non-top buses in the port of Shijing in Quanzhou heading to the central city as early as 8 o'clock or 9 o'clock, with ticket prices from 7 RMB to 15 RMB. It takes about 60 to 90 minutes to get there.

If people miss the non-stop bus, they can take a bus to Shuitou where there are non-stop buses to Quanzhou. The bus leaves every 12 minute, with a full fare of 7 RMB or so. It takes about one hour to the destination.

It is 57 kilometers from the port of Quanzhou to the central city of Quanzhou. People can take a bus with the ticket price of 10 RMB. Also, there is another bus from Dehua to Quanzhou departing every 20 minutes having a stop here, making everything convenient.


There are 6 passenger stations in the central city of Quanzhou, including the Central Passenger Station, the New Passenger Station, the Old Passenger Station, the West Passenger Station, the East Passenger Station and Fengze Passenger Station.

Currently, buses going to other cities in Fujian Province leave from the Central Station while those going to the surrounding areas leave from the New Passenger Station.

The New Passenger Station is at the crossing of Wenling Road and Quanxiu Road, and the Central Passenger Station is at the crossing of Pingshan Road and Quanxiu Road.

Tips: There are 2 waiting rooms in the New Passenger Station. One is for middle-and-long distance travel, where there are buses to Xiamen and Fuzhou. The other one is for short-distance travel, where there is a bus to Shishi.


Quanzhou Railway Station is quite small, with only 3 routes to Ganzhou, Wuyi Mountain and Longyan. People can take Bus 19, Bus 7, Bus 25 or Bus 23 in the central city of Quanzhou in the direction of Huaqiao University. They can also take a bus whose destination is Huian to the railway station.

People seldom go to Quanzhou by train unless they visit Wuyi Moutain first and go to Quanzhou from Wuyi Moutain. Train K396 leaves Wuyi Moutain at 21:52 every night and arrives in Quanzhou at 10:48 the next morning.

What type of public transport to take to Dehua from Xiamen Airport? How much will it cost and how long is the journey?

There is no transportation from Xiamen airport to Dehua. You are suggested to board express bus at Xiamen bus station. I think the best way is to take taxi to bus station. As I know taxi fare in Xiamen is not expensive.
