Flight

Except the rail service, flights are also available for this trip. The flight usually needs about 2 hours but the price is usually higher. During the off season, the airlines would offer good discount and travelers can make a comparison between for a final decision. The airports in both cities are far from the city center, thus travelers need to leave enough time for the transfer on the way if other trips followed straightly.

Thank you for your inquiry.

G360 is the fastest train and therefore under great demands. Also, this G360 will finally reach Xi'an North after passing Zhengzhou. Most tickets were offered to passengers to the final station thus the tickets to Zhengzhou are hard to get. You may consider to use other rides instead. If you do need this G360, you may buy a ticket to Xi'an North but get off in advance.

Zhengzhou Railway Station is a little closer compared with the East Sstation, but not a big difference. It would take around CNY20 to 30 by taxi from both stations. If you do not mind of using metro, you can use metro line 1 from both station as well, get off at Yanzhuang, exit A.
