Enough time to visit Terra-Cotta Warriors Museum if arriving at noon time?
Is it easy to get to the museum from Xi'an North Station?

Answered by Nettie from CANADA | Dec. 15, 2019 16:21

If you can reach Xi'an at noon time, it should be possible as I heard the museum closed at 5:30pm. From the North Station, you can take line 2 to Beidajia and then change to line 1 to Fangzhicheng. From there, you can take bus No. 306 to reach the museum. The total duration would be nearly 2 hours.

Waiting room and boarding gate of train D2510
I read online that these information need to be find at station on the information board. I am just wondering if these information will be listed in English in Xi'an North Station?

Answered by Rodgers from USA | May. 26, 2019 18:46

Yes, if you wait patiently, there will finally English information shows up. There is also an easier way, by checking your paper ticket. After you collected your paper ticket out, check the top right corner. Your checkin gate is write there. In Xi'an North Station, it is a common waiting hall. So you can just find a seat near your checkin gate.

Why these trains take different time for same trip?
What's the difference between them?Is it easy to find honest taxi at Xi'an North Station to reach Eastern House Boutique Hotel?

Answered by Lorraine from AUSTRALIA | Jan. 31, 2019 17:16

There can be a little difference on their average speed, and they has difference in stopovers as well. It takes longer time if it stops more stations along the way. But generally speaking, the high speed type takes around 3 to 3.5 hours.

If you use an official taxi and ask to go by meter, it should be fine. The distance is around 15km and should be within CNY40. If you do not mind of using public transfer, you may consider metro line 2 as well. You can take line 2 to Bell Tower and then walk about 1.5km to reach the hotel.

It is no problem to take a train from Pingyao to Xi'an if I have a ticket from Taiyuan?
Answers (1)
Answered by TravelChinaGuide | Nov. 04, 2018 16:13

Thank you for your inquiry.
Based on the policy, it is OK to board from a stopover along its way. The seat/bed should be reserved for you. You need to collect the paper ticket out before the departure time from Taiyuan. And most important, you need to make sure the one you choose do have a stopover in Pingyao. Not every rides from Taiyuan to Xi'an have a stop at Pingyao.
