China Travel Answer

Q: Hi, I would like to know how I can travel by long distance bus from Xiamen airport to Wenzhou.

Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport is close by the city itself - it is located about 10 km (6 m) northeast of Xiamen. One can get from the airport into the city by airport shuttle, taxi, or buses.

There are three main long distance bus stations in Xiamen. Songbai Long Distance Bus Station (Songbai Changtu Qiche Zhan) is located at No. 211 Lianyue Road, Xiamen; tel. 0592?5089328. Hubin Long Distance Bus Station (Hubin Changtu Qiche Zhan) is located at No. 59 Hubin Nan Lu (Hubin Road South), Xiamen; tel. 0592?2215238. Jimei Long Distance Bus Station (Jimei Changtu Qiche Zhan) is located at No. 159 Yinjiang Road, Jimei; tel. 0592?6068319.

The distance between Xiamen and Wenzhou, by highway, is about 700 km (420 m). A bus ride between the two cities lasts about seven hours.

There is no direct train service between Xiamen and Wenzhou, and the rail route is circuitous.
