Weifang

area is undergoing heavy construction (welcome to Weifang). From the station take bus 56 to get to the downtown spots. 'As with every train station in the country, beware of the taxi drivers waiting to overcharge unsuspecting foreigners.' This previous para, is incorrect or old information now, and should be removed. All Green and Gold taxis are "Beijing Hyundai Elantra's" they are all correctly metered The Blue taxis, which are slowly being replaced, are Volks Wagon Santana's, they are also fully metered. There is no need walk away from the station to the road and catch a taxi who uses the meter. When exiting Weifang train station, the taxis at the ground level are "long distance" taxis, i.e., more than 10km distance for your travel The taxis at the upper (1st level) are the general taxis for Weifang downtown areas. Currently (April 2012) the fare starts at 5 rnb, plus 1 rnb fuel surcharge, totally 6 rnb, This will take you to almost all down town locations. If departing there are many ticket agencies around the city that sell train tickets with only a 5 or 10 yuan service fee, making it unnecessary to head back to the station and wait in the crowded lines. Agency operators (as with most citizens in this small city) most likely will not speak English. Booking your train up to 10 days in advance is advisable. By bus There are three main bus stations in Weifang, 1 First of which is completed construction and is located across the train station. 2 Second of which is down the road from the train station - one kilometer or so, adjacent to the "cheap market" in Quingnian Rd.. 3 Of which is the other long distance bus station on Jiankang East Street With the new China Rail Highspeed (CHR)trains, short-distance buses see much less passengers, however during holidays are sometimes the only way to go. As there is no pre-booking of bus tickets, simply show up the day (morning is better) you want to go. ''Qingdao airport'': if catching a flight from Qingdao it is cheaper and sometimes more efficient to take the bus from Weifang to Qingdao, the minibus, which is a Ford Transit 16 seater, stops at departures at Qingdao Airport. The cost is 70 rnb. Many Chinese people do exactly this. Taking a train to Qingdao will require taking either an airport bus or taxi, back the way you came, about 20 minutes outside of Qingdao to where the airport is located. Traveling from Weifang directly to Qingdao airport by bus takes about 2 hours and costs 70 rnb. ''Travel tip'': buses in China generally do not have toilets on them and they sometimes go for hours (especially sleeper buses) without stopping. Get around By bus Weifang buses much like the city itself are new and therefore quite comfortable when not peak travel times. Buses start around 6AM ending at about 10PM in the summer and 9PM in the winter. The two main roads are Dongfeng Jie and Shengli Jie which bus #16 and #56 both service. Bus 16 follows a circular loop along both of these two main streets while bus 56 starts at the train station and ends at the other side of the city at Weifang University. By Taxi 90 % of the taxi's in Weifang are now green and gold taxi's, these are Hyundai Elantra's. The older blue are slowly being replaced, they are Volks Wagon Santana's. Taxi's will go 3 kilometers before adding about 1.6 yuan per each extra kilometer. An extra one yuan fuel fee is to be paid to the driver at the end of your voyage. Weifang proper is quite small so getting from end of the city to the other won't cost more than ¥20. See Weifang's claim to fame is its kites and a visit to Weifang should include some exposure to the kite culture here. *
