Is it easy to reach Orange Hotel Select at Zhongshan Road from Xiamen Station?
How about from the North Station?

Answered by Christina from USA | Nov. 25, 2019 22:06

It is not very far from the main station, maybe only CNY15 by taxi. If you will reach North Station, you may consider metro line 1 to Zhenhailu and then walk to the hotel from 3B exit. Taxi would costs around CNY75 for this trip.

The ticket price difference on G1653 and D3201
May i know why there is a price difference between G1653 and D3201? Is there any difference for the seats and service?

Answered by Lorraine from USA | Jan. 23, 2019 17:23

It is not the seat and service issue but the train type and running route. Some times the price is higher on G types, the fastest bullet ride. Also, the G and D runs on different routes but finally will reach Xiamen North Station.
