How to get from Hohhot East Station to Hohhot Station and how long it takes?

Answered by Danny from CANADA | Apr. 28, 2020 17:30

It would be better if you take a taxi directly which would be around 25min. If you use bus or metro, you need to walk some distance, so not convenient with luggage. If you do not mind walking distance, you can use metro line 1 at East Station and get off at the 8th stop, Xinhua Square, exit H2. You can then walk around 1km to the north direction to reach there. I think you need at least 50min for this option.
