About Taiyuan

Taiyuan, a city in China's Shanxi Province, brings together the mystic atmosphere of the Far East and the European lifestyle. The city is located along the banks of the Fen River, as can be understood from the literary meaning of the city’s name, "Great Plains".

In Taiyuan, which has a population of about 4.5 million, the springs are a bit dry and the summer heat comes early. The winter months are cold and long, but they do not get much rain; they are sunny, but still dry. It is a city with an average temperature of 24 degrees Celsius in January.

Taiyuan is one of the important centers in terms of China's economy, but one of the most important things that those who go to Taiyun should know is the weather here is really polluted. It is the fourth city with the world's most polluted weather. There are many temples and historical buildings in the city which has a history of 2,500 years. Especially the Tianlong Shan stone caves are worth seeing.

Taiuyan, in the People's Republic of China, can be reached via Taiyuan Wusu International Airport.

Outside the Taiyuan Wusu Airport terminal, which is only 15 km away from Taiyuan city center, you will see many bus stops and taxi stands. As there will not be any problem in terms of transportation, you can reach the city in a very short time. Transportation by bus is of course slightly longer than the taxi. But if you want a more economical choice, you should take a bus to get to the city center.

Airport Shuttle Buses

Shuttle buses, which are one of the ways to get to Taiyuan within the shortest time, offer service under the body of Taiyuan Wusu Airport.

The destinations and stops of each route are different but nearly all of them pass through the center of the city.

The fare you need to pay for the ticket by 2014 is 16 Chinese Yuan. The Line 2 stops by more places in the city center compared to Line 1 and finally goes to the Xishan building. Because of having more stops, the fare is around 25-30 Chinese Yuan and the travel time is about 40 minutes. Line 3, which directly takes you to the South Railway Station from Taiyuan Wusu Airport, costs 13 yuan. Line 4 also takes you to the East Bus Station within 45 minutes for 25 yuan.
