    • Zhengzhou to Dengfeng

      Dengfeng Jul 14, 2013 at 9:55 AM

      a) We're flying into Zhngzhou and arriving at 22:50. Is there any way to get to Dengfeng at that hour?

      b) If not, we'll be staying over in Zhengzhou and will go to Dengfeng (i.e., Shaolin) in the morning. Is there anywhere we can leave our luggage in Denfeng/Shaoling as we will be going on to Luoyang afterwards.

    • Wanxian Mountain / Guoliangcun

      Henan Sheng Dec 13, 2011 at 6:06 AM

      Hi,

      I will be in Zhengzhou/Luoyang/Kaifeng over new year, and i stumbled upon this place:
      google.com.hk/search?tbm=isc...

      Its called guoliangcun in wanxian mountain. Looks really nice and apparently you can stay at some local family too.

      But does anyone know how to get there? I read about some bus from xinsha city, but really not much information available. And I also dont know if its even possible around that time to go there, maybe easy to have ice and snow there?

      Thanks in advance!

      First time to Xian & Luoyang

      Luoyang Sep 28, 2010 at 11:53 AM

      I'm planning to visit Xian & Luoyang from Beijing.
      For Xian: How many days do I need to visit Terra Cotta Warriors, Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum, Xian City wall, Bell & Drum Tower, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Shaanxi History Museum, Mosleum Street, Great Mosque, and Mt.Huashan? Also, is Qianling Mausoleum worth visiting?
      For Luoyang: How many days do I need to visit Longmen Grottoes, Shaolin Temple and White Horse Temple?

      I'll be arriving Beijing on 20th Oct'10 in late afternoon. Seems like most people travel to Xian by overnight train. Is it possible to get the night train to Xian on the same day when I arrive Beijing? Or can I book the train tickets overseas?
      What's the best way to travel from Xian to Luoyang? And also best way to travel from Luoyang back to Beijing? As I need to be back in Beijing on 27th Oct'10. Thank you.

    • Living in Zhoukou

      Zhengzhou Jan 14, 2010 at 12:05 PM

      Hi there! I have posted on the Zhoukou forum as well. I am going to be relocating to Zhoukou mid-Feb to teach English for one year. It seems that because Zhoukou is quite remote and rural, there is not much information online. I would like to speak to anyone living in Zhoukou or Henan, for that matter, about life there; facilities (gym, supermarket etc.), how I should prepare, basically anyone who has been through the experience of relocating to a completely new environment for advice. I am excited, don't get me wrong, but also apprehensive about being prepared to embrace the experience fully.

      As well, I will fly into PEK and prefer to catch train or bus from there to Zhoukou. I have googled this so many times and can't find many websites that aren't in Chinese, for which my computer is incompatible anyway, or that I can't access for this, that or the other reason. Can someone please help me out? Where do I catch the train from? Is the bus easier and cheaper? How much? Just one last thing, has anyone heard of Big Stone China? Anyone taught there?

      Thank you and look forward to reading your replies. Of course, any other advice you can pass my way would be much appreciated as well.

      Hi, I'd like to know about the train K738/735 from Shanghai to Luoyang. Is it a nice train, is it on time, and can one actually get some sleep in a soft sleeper with all those stops? Also, can I be assured of getting sleeper--there are four of us--if we buy the ticket in Shanghai 6/12 for a 6/15 departure? Thanks for the info.

      Longmen Grottoes and Shaolin Temple--in 1 day

      Luoyang May 22, 2009 at 11:08 AM

      I realize that you should take about 2 days or more to explore this area, but my partner and I are short on time so we have 1 day to do this. We are arriving by train from Zhengzhou in the early morning, and want to take the late train from Luoyang to Beijing in the evening. Is taking a bus from Luoyang to Longmen and back, then another bus from Luoyang to Shaolin and back, the only option? Is there a bus service from Longmen -> Shaolin (or vice versa?). I really don't want to be stuck without return transportation! I am also willing to research the cost of hiring a driver and car for the day to hit both spots before sundown, but I need a website or referral for that (anybody?). And which should be first? Shaolin temple or Longmen? I am very serious about visitng both sites in 1 day. Thanks!

      Getting into Luoyang

      Luoyang Jun 28, 2008 at 3:58 PM

      I'm looking into the prospect of visiting this city in April next year, and from what I've gathered it appears that China Eastern is the only airline that flies here directly from Beijing or Shanghai (where my plane from Manila arrives). However, I've also read quite a number of recent horror stories about this airline's service that makes me wary of riding it. Taking the bus or train sounds like a long and tiring proposition which I'd like to avoid.

      Are there other alternatives that anyone might suggest? Is Chinese Eastern the only one available? Or would it be just as convenient to fly in at another city near Luoyang and travel overland from there?

      Thanks for any reply.

      1)in shaolinsi, Do they have like a show where all the kids perform martial arts? Or you can just see them practicing everytime? What time does it open?
      2)Is it worth it to go Dengfeng? Or it's a waste of time?
      3) is spending half day on both places enough? or it should be the whole day?

      about longmen caves:
      1) is spending half day (maybe the whole morning) enough? which is the best time to go here? morning or afternoon?
