How to get to Xuzhou station, is metro available in Xuzhou?
I will arrive at Xuzhou east station, but I will have to connect a train departing from Xuzhou station about 2 hours later. Metro can save me a lot of time I think.

Hello, may I know if there is direct train to Qingdao from Xuzhou?
May I know which station should I use?
Answers (1)
Answered by Darcy | Aug. 11, 2019 17:59

Yes, direct high speeds as well as slow one, 25 rides in total. If you will use high speeds, you will then use this East Station and almost of the rides stop at Qingdao Station. If you will use slow one, it would be Xuzhou Railway Station. Most of them still stop at Qingdao Station, a few of them use Qingdao North.
