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.

Not sure if there is a special window for collection, but any ticket sales window can be used for collection. i think the office should begin work around 6am and cloest around 9:30pm or 10pm.

To whom it may concern

i will be attending the storm music festival in shanghai and booked my ticket for the festival and my train ticket to shanghai aswell but the problem is that i had to hand my passport in to renew my visa . they gave me a collection date for my passport on the 30th of september which doesnt work in my favour because i leave at 3am that morning is it possible to travel with that form that they have given me and not with my passport and would i be able to travel back to jinan on the 4th of october with that form even though it has passed the passport collection date?

I heard that that receipt can be used as passports during the renew process, however, this is not listed as normal travel document by railway authority. This is reaaly hard to say if this can surely work out. Maybe you need to arrive at the station early in advance to collect the ticket. If you can collect the paper ticket out successfully, it should be Ok for boarding with that receipt.
