Getting to XISU

Most students come to Xi’an by flying to Xi'an Xianyang International Airport (XIY). For those early arriving students, getting to XISU from the airport is not hard and can be done in many ways:

  • Taxi: The easiest way is to take a taxi directly to XISU. It costs about RMB 130-150.

  • Airport Shuttle bus: Another alternative is to utilize the airport shuttle bus(Line 1 or Line 3) that operate from the airport every half hour and will drop you off at the downtown, then you need to take a taxi to the campus. It cost about RMB 55 in total.

         Line 1: Airport - North Train Station

         Line 3: Airport - Xishaomen
