Taiyuan Wusu International Airport to Pingyao
Hello, Like to know what is the best way to travel from the airport to Pingyao except using the taxi?

In the airport, there are direct buses going to the South Railway Station, and you can take that. Upon arrival at the train station, take a bullet train to Pingyao. The train ride is about 70-80 mins. At the railway station,you can take the bus No. 103 to the ancient city. The bus fare is CNY3, and its operation time is from 07:00 to 20:00.

Afternoon bus from Taiyuan to Shuozhou (or Pianguan?)
I will arrive at 2pm in the airport and want to travel straight to Shuozhou. What bus station should I go to from the airport - East or the "main" one ? Also, is there any direct bus to Pianguan in the afternoons ? Thanks.

Answered by Dora from USA | Mar. 09, 2016 02:58

To Shuozhou, you need to go to General Bus Station. The schedules after 14:00 are from 14:30 to 19:10. The duration is about 2 hours. After arriving, I'm afraid that you cannot catch the last coach (scheduled at 17:00) to Pianguan.
So you can find a hotel nearby and take direct coach from Shuozhou (Yingbin) Bus Station in the next early morning. The direct coaches depart at 07:00, 07:40, 08:40, 09:00, 10:20, 12:30, 13:00, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00 and 17:00. It takes around 2.5 hours.

You can exchange Chinese yuan at the currency exchange center at the airport. The rate is trustworthy and they sometimes ask for service fee. In the downtown, personally I recommend you go to the Bank of China (any branch) for currency branch.
