Almost all buses between the two cities stop at 22:00. But a train departing at 23:48 from Longmen railway station to Zhengzhou railway station is available. The train ride would take about 1.5 to 2 hours. So you are advised to take a taxi from Lijing City Gate to Longmen railway station. The taxi ride may need about 30 - 40 minutes and CNY25 – 30. If you miss the train, you have to spend one night in LY and return Zhengzhou next morning.

You can first take the bus No.81/ K81 at Baiyuan bus stop, about 5-minutes walk from the scenic area. Then get off at Longmen Avenue Kaiyuan Avenue bus stop where to transfer to the bus No.15/ K15. Then get off at Jianshe Road West Tanggonglukou. Then walk about 2 minutes to the hotel.
