All these normal speed trains are operated at the main stations in both cities. Although they take much longer time than  high speed rides, the overnight sleeper trains like Z81/Z79, K683/K681 can save your hotel cost and daytime for visiting. In this way, these overnight rides are also popular among many travelers. For a long distance trip over 10 hours, it is better to have a sleeper bed to guarantee a good rest. And you are recommended to book a sleeper early in advance since the ticket may run out quickly.

How to travel from Dalian Station to North Station?
How long will it take by bus or taxi? Your reply will be appreciated.

Answered by Sumner | Apr. 02, 2019 16:53

No direct bus, you may take metro line 3 to Quanshui first and then change to bus No. 516 to get off at South Square of the North Station.

Or you may choose to walk to Qingniwaqian metro station instead and take line 2 to Xianlu and then change to line 1 to the North Square. By any of these option, you need at least 1 hours. If by taxi, it would be 30 or 40min.

Answered by Bailee from NORWAY | Nov. 29, 2018 17:19

Dalian Railway Station is much closer in distance, about 1km away. So you may even walk to reach the hotel. The North Station is far away. So if possible, it would be better to choose one stop at the main station instead of North Station.
