There is only one pair of rail service between Xiamen and Qingdao. Although it is a high speed rail service, it still takes around 12.5 to 13 hours on the way. The ticket price would be RMB791 for a second class seat. Flight did save a lot of time and would not cost too much as well. The only problem for flight would be the possibility of typhoon in Xiamen, but it is a chance problem and cannot be predict

What is the cheapest way to travel between?

Many thanks for your assistance

I think there is no direct rail connection between. BY rail, you may choose a transfer via Beijing. The cost would be around CNY700 by second class one way. The price doubled for round trip.

For flight, it seems there is no direct flight to Qingdao on 19th or 20th. A transfer in beijing would cost more than CNY1,000. If you go to dalian by rail first and then a flight to the final destination, it can be a cheaper, for example around CNY600. For return to Dandong, there is direct flight available. The price is good as well, around CNY500. But it may change from time to time.

No, you need to take a transfer at Guangzhou or Beijing. Beijing will be better for you. You could take high speed ride from Beijing south to there.
