How can I get to Shaolin Temple from Zhengzhou East station?
Answers (1)
Answered by Alan from USA | Jun. 30, 2020 17:55

You can take bus to Shaolin Temple.
Take bus or taxi to Zhengzhou Bus Terminal, where you can find bus to Shaolin Temple, the bus ride takes about 2 hours, please make sure you will have enough time.
If you arrive in the afternoon, then we suggest you stay one night in Zhengzhou and then take the morning bus to Shaolin Temple, the bus will take you to the main entrance of the site.
Or, you can take bus to Dengfeng County directly in the afternoon and stay overnight there. Then take a taxi to Shaolin Temple in the next morning, the taxi will not charge you as the taximeter, the drivers always ask about CNY40- 50 per ride. Generally, the taxi will take all passengers to Sanhuangzhai, which is the back door of Shaolin Temple. In this way, you can see the panorama of Shaolin Temple, but it's exhausting. If you want to go to the main entrance directly, you need to talk with the driver in advance.

I think there is one at the 3F, in the waiting hall. The problem is that you need a ticket of that day to enter the waiting hall.

Hello, may I know when the earliest train runs from Minhanglu to Zhengzhou East Station?
Do you think it is OK to catch a train at 7:26am?
Answers (1)
Answered by Peter from CANADA | Aug. 12, 2019 18:55

I think the first metro of line 1 is at Minhanglu should be at 6:29am and it will reach East Station at 6:43am. If you have paper tickets in hand already, it should be possible to catch it. If you do not have a paper ticket yet, it is too risky.

Taxi at late night
I will arrive at Zhengzhou East railway station on Feb 13 (week of Chinese New Year).
Do you know whether there are enough official, safe taxis at 11.30 PM (night) which can take me somewhere within the city?

Thank you.
