Travel Tips

Since it only takes about 3–4 hours to travel on a high-speed train, we highly recommend you choose one over a normal-speed train. Not only is the price quite low but the journey duration is quite short.

Station Information

1. Please pay attention to the stations in Xi’an when you take a normal-speed train as they operate from two different stations there. However, both stations are relatively close to the downtown area.

2. It is about 12 kilometers (7 miles) from Taiyuan South Railway Station to the downtown area. The following public buses operate to the station: 51, 501, 502, 807, 824, 849, 861, and 868.
