By Train 火车站
With a reputation as 'the Gateway to the West', Xian Railway Station is one of the most pivotal terminals of the domestic railway system. It is the key junction between the southwest and the northwest, and forms a connecting link between the east and the west of China.
The station lies in the north urban area, so it will take you about half an hour by car from the downtown area. Buses traveling to the railway station can be found on every main street, and will only cost you 1 or 2 Yuan. If you choose to travel by taxi, the fare should be less than 10 Yuan (from the city center).

Purchasing train tickets can be troublesome for foreigners, as the ticket windows are usually crowded and have few English-speaking staff. One solution to such a problem is to ask for the ticket-booking service at any star rated hotel, who will offer their assistance for a nominal service charge. You are better off buying train tickets one week in advance of travel, especially during the peak travel seasons.



Xi'an Bus 西安公共交通
The highway transportation to Xian extends in all direction. Long-distance buses commute between Xian and many large cities, covering 18 provinces and over 300 cities and counties. The Xian long-distance bus line terminal, which has been ranked as the highest class station in the whole nation, lies to the southwest of the railway station. People usually buy bus tickets on the same day of travel. Generally speaking, though the price is much more economical, foreigners are not encouraged to take the long-distance busses due to general hardship and fatigue. If at all possible, the plane and train are better choices.

Ensure you have a smooth vacation by planning your airport shuttle connections ahead of time? Let the professional, English speaking staff look after you when you arrive in Xi'an. Travel in comfortable air-conditioned vehicles to and from your hotel. Just look out for your name and let the professional team do the rest!


Tips:   Due to possible traffic jams, travelers are advised to set aside enough time when leaving for the train station or airport.
The public transportation network in Xi'an is among the best in China. If you are not in a hurry, there is no need to rent a taxi.

小贴士:由于在路上极其有可能遇见堵车,所以要尽早赶往火车站或飞机场。西安的 公共交通网络在全国都是比较好的。如果你不是特别赶时间,您就不需要乘出租车。
