How to Get to Xi'an, to Your Hotel, and to the Conference Venue


Xi'an is one of the most important and convenient transportation hubs in central and western China. Frequent flights, trains and buses connect the city with other major cities all around the country. The urban transportation of the city has been somewhat frustrating in recent years because of the metro construction. Now metro line 1, line 2 and line 3 are in operation. Several other lines are also under construction or in the planning process. For now the buses and taxis can take you to get around the city.

Bullet Trains

























Tips: Taking the traveling time into consideration, the bullet types are always the best choice. However, when you buy tickets between Xi'an and Beijing or Shanghai, some overnight sleeper ones are favorable for they save time and also the expense on hotels, for example, Beijing - Xi'an, Z19/Z20, T41/T42, T231/T232 and Xi'an – Shanghai, Z94/Z92, Z166/Z164. It is reminded to book these popular tickets as early as possible; otherwise, it is hard to get the most suitable sleeper tickets.
