to Hyatt Regency Fuzhou Cangshan and airport
I am considering which station should I alight? And also, is the hotel far from the airport? How long it takes by taxi? Is it easy to find taxi at the station and in cities? Thank you.

Answered by Charles from USA | Jan. 27, 2019 17:08

The distance from both stations are almost the same, around 17 or 19km etc. By taxi, both would be around 30min. There are more rides stop at the South Station, so maybe this can be your option. The airport is indeed very far from the hotel, more than 50km and takes around 1 hour by taxi. Taxi can always be found at a station or airport. It is also easy to get taxi in city during day time. If you need help, you can ask your hotel to find a taxi for you.
