Flights VS. High Speed Trains

Passengers can take a flight which takes around 1.5 hours, but it costs more. And the airports are located in the suburban areas and one may need at least 2 hours for the transfers to/from the airport. In this case, it takes almost the same time as the high speed ride. In addition, the flight can be easily affected by the weather, and it’s not as punctual as trains. All in all, rail travel is a better choice.

The closest subway station to your hostel is Dongsishitiao, about 1.2km. Therefore, you may choose to walk to there and take subway line 2 to Xuanwumen and then change to line 4 to the South Station. It should take around 50min on the way. I read that passengers need to be at the station 1.5 hours in advance.

You can consider The Westin Qingdao near Wusi Square. It is convenient to use metro between the hotel and both stations, line 3.
