Anyone know best mode of transportation from Zhengzhou to Shaolin?
We are staying in Shaolin for 2 days.
The best transportation is that you hire a private car to go Shaolin from Zhengzhou.
The distance from from Zhengzhou to Shaolin is about 90km. if you take by bus is about RMB30 one way lasting about 2-3 hours. but there are many tourists trap on Zhengzhou long bus station.
TRAVELING IS LIFE. HOPE ABOVE IS HELPFUL.
How would you recommend finding a car to hire? Contacting someone in advance or negotiating at the train station?
don't negotiate at the train station or bus station. It is better you have a local guide there if you don't speak chinese. You can hire a car from some car rental companies which has branches in zhengzhou.
There is a bus station just opposite to the train station. Go there and tell them that you need to transfer to shaolinsi. There are buses heading for shaolinsi
i suggest u go to shaolin by hiring a private car and driver. Inside the shaolin, there is a four-star hotel.
and shaolin entrance fee is 100 CNY for per person. for kid, if they r higher than 1.4 meters, they will be charged by full price, if they r lower than 1.4 meters,they will be free of charge.
