Do you mean you will arrive at Jinan West station firstly and then will take another train at Jinan Station? Then the best way is to take a train from Jinan West to Jinan station, the train only takes 16 minutes, which also eliminates the trouble finding a taxi outside of the station, moreover, taxi takes about 30 minutes. Please email us your schedules and then we can offer options for you.

I will take a train from Jinan to Beijing, can I collect my tickets at the machine?

Answered by Wilson Lee from CANADA | May. 27, 2020 19:57

Machines can only read Chinese ID card. If you use passport, you need to collect tickets from a ticket window. Actually, you can have your passports verified at the ticket window, and then you can enter the train station without collecting paper tickets.

How can I go from Jinan West Station to Ber International Hotel?
Bus, taxi?
Answers (1)
Answered by Lauren from NORWAY | Jul. 25, 2019 18:09

Taxi would be easier! It takes around 30min on the way if no serious traffic problem. Taxi fare maybe CNY40 or 50. If you prefer to use bus, it is OK workable: you can use bus k58 from the station to Dong Wu Yuan (Zoo) and walk about 800m to reach your hotel. Bus stops a lot so much longer time, maybe nearly 1.5 hours.
