Hi, I want to know how long it takes by taxi from Dalian Ferry Port to train station?
I mean the main station. Is there metro service?
Answers (1)
Answered by Ollie from IRELAND | May. 12, 2020 17:13

It is not far by map, 5km most. Taxi would be convenient, 15min only to the main station. No metro service at the port, you would need to walk over 1km to get to Gangwan Square and then take line 2 for 2 stops, finally walk to the station. It is not a good option. One bus is in service, bus No. 13. You can use this bus if you like, but taxi is better.

Is there any one to advise a most convenient area in Dalian for hotel?
I am not sure where to book a hotel. Is it better to stay in city center?

Answered by Evelyn from RUSSIA | Jul. 17, 2019 18:13

Indeed, nearly half of travelers stay at city center like Zhongshan Square and half near the sea area. Personally speaking I would prefer the sea area like near Xinghai Square. It depends on your visiting plan in Dalian.

You can choose to walk to Qingniwaqian subway station of line 2 and take that line 2 to the airport. The Qingniwaqiao is about 1,100m away from the railway station. I heard there is also shuttle bus from the Shengli Square nearby to the airport, but not sure how to find it.
