Since different railway stations are involved in both cities, it is advisable to double check the correct station for use before departure to avoid any unnecessary "accident" on the day of travel.

 In Shenzhen:
North Station can be easily accessed by subway Line 4 (Long Hua Line) and Line 5 (Huan Zhong Line); airport shuttle bus line 330C also connects it with airport directly. Pingshan Station is far from the city and only recommended for the passengers who stay nearby.

 In Xiamen:
Xiamen Railway Station is closer to the city center and sightseeing area, thus if the time fits, it would be a good option to choose this station. North Railway Station, though far from the city center compared with the main station, has many city buses to airport and scenic spots including Jimei School Village and South Putuo Temple

There is an airport shuttle bus route can go from the international ferry terminal to Xiamen North. It takes at least 1 hour on the way and it seems very few buses in service. So maybe 2 hours are needed for consideration. If you are tight in time, you can consider taxi which takes around 40min on the way.

Answered by Tina from AUSTRALIA | Jan. 29, 2019 19:22

It is about 26km between and a little hard by public bus or metro as you need to change bus on the way. So it would be better to take a direct taxi. Taxi would probably costs CNY60. There is a more economy way, by rail. By rail, it takes around 25min and costs CNY8.5 only for a second class seat. However, to catch the next train from North Station, you still need to prepare extra 30min for this change.

The main station is at No. 900 Xiahe Road in Siming District, the North station is in Jimei District, a little far in distance to the hotel. But indeed most of the rides will use North Station. If you will stop at this North Station, it would take around 40min by taxi and cost around CNY70. Your hotel is not too far from the metro lines, so you may also use the metro service. You can take line 1 to Zhenhailu, exit No. 2. The hotel is around 800m in distance. If from the main station, taxi would be good, only about 15min and cost within CNY20.
