Xi'an Railway Station is for regular trains. It is the city's main regular train station and right near the central city attractions. You can use this station to fairly economically visit Xi'an's highlights from most major cities in China via regular slow trains.
Conventional trains are available from this station. They are less expensive than bullet trains, but they may take two or three times longer.
Xi'an North Station handles Xi'an's high-speed lines...
This is one of China's top 10 busiest passenger stations, and it is undergoing an expansion. There is a two story building with a large plaza square in front of it at the south side of the building.
General fares: Terracotta Army Museum (1 hour, 120 RMB), Xi'an North Train Station (30 minute, 50 RMB), and Bell Tower (12 minutes, 12 RMB). For more general fare information and taxi tips, see Taking the Taxi in Xi'an.
The cost is about 4 yuan per journey. If you are traveling with big luggage, this option is not recommended, especially when the trains are crowded during morning, noon, and evening rush hours.
From there, you can also walk to the Drum Tower and the Muslim neighborhood and mosque nearby in a few minutes.
Xi'an Xianyang International Airport has no subway yet. Taxi or bus is the best option unless you want to go by our private driver or another service. It is 26 kilometers (16 miles) away. Airport Shuttle Bus 2 goes directly there.

Our private drivers are more convenient and comfortable, and they wait on you, saving time.
