Im an international traveler.
Do I choose Haikou station or Haikou East station in the train schedule?

Yes, you can take a train from airport directly, the station is called "Meilan" Station instead. You can book a ticket from Meilan to Sanya.

I read that you cannot take bicycle on the train, so maybe you need to use a consignment service or an express company.

May I know what is the difference between Sanya and Sany (Hainan)?

Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Oct. 24, 2019 18:23

Thank you for your inquiry.

They are the same station, you do not need to worry about it. Trains in Hainan island run in a circle, so the names are only used to distinguish it as beginning station or final arrival station. Although the names are different, they are the same station.

Meilan train station to airport
How much time it takes from meilan train station to international departure of airport by walk. How can I get to international departure block

Answered by Kimi from SINGAPORE | May. 15, 2019 02:12

See from distance, it should be at least 20min walking. Or you can walk to the domestic terminal, arrival hall, gate 3 first and then take a shuttle bus to the international terminal. The shuttle bus runs around every 20min. So you need to prepare at least 30min for this transfer.
