Dear Sir or Madam, I didn't find a coach from Shijiazhuang to Beijing airport. I suggest you take a train from Shijiazhuang to Beijing west railway station. It takes about 3-3.5 hours and costs about US$21 per person. Then take a taxi to Beijing airport. It takes about 1 hour and costs about US$US$16 per car. Lussie Lu replied on 2013-01-11

Hi Faria, Xiamen Medical University is in Xiamen City which is about 2,200km from Shijiazhuang. You can go there by air or train, but there is no direct train. After you get to Xiamen, you can take a taxi to the university.
