Is Pingyao Ancient Town station in walking distance?
I will stay at Pingyao Jiaxin Guesthouse.

Answered by Cartwright from SPAIN | Mar. 27, 2019 00:20

No, it is not a walking distance. The station is more than 9km away. But you can walk about 200m to the Beimenkou bus station and take bus 108 directly there. It take around 30min but you'd better to have extra 10min or so for a waiting time.

Hi, can I board the train from Pingyao if booked from Taiyuan?
If I book a ticket from Taiyuan to Xi'an on D1901, will it be a problem to get on at Pingyao Ancient Town?
Answers (1)
Answered by Tommy from USA | Nov. 20, 2018 19:19

It is no problem to board from Pingyao though the ticket shows Taiyuan. Taiyuan is one stop before your boarding, so the seats will still be hold for you. You can use the booked seat shows on your paper ticket directly. The impotent thing is that do collect the paper ticket in advance before 7:20am, the departure time from Taiyuan, otherwise, there is a possibility that you will lose your seat.
