Long-distance Buses

Long-distance buses are one of the best means of getting around the country. Services are extensive and main roads are rapidly improving.

The nation is going full steam ahead in the construction of expressways and first-and second-grade motor roads. Construction of expressways and first-and second-class highways for the nation's tourism industry is in high swing. Several dozen expressways pivoted on such major cities as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu, Taiyuan and Xi'an have been completed and opened to traffic. Sections of the Lianyungang-Alataw (Xinjiang) Expressway, which runs across the Chinese continent from east to west, and the Beijing-Hong Kong Expressway, cutting through the country from south to north, will come under construction soon.

The numbers of tourist buses in large and medium-sized cities and sleeper-buses that run across provincial boundaries are on the increase. Expressway transport in China is characterized by top-notch and speedy services and simplified procedures, and express buses are dispatched in a streamlined fashion to guarantee prompt arrivals. Most vehicles running along these expressways are imported or joint venture products that are well equipped and designed and have durable functions. Service in these buses is on a par with airline service, and they run at an average speed of 100 km per hour.

Getting Around in a City

  • Taxi:
    Taxis are a convenient means of transportation in various cities in China, with fares ranging from 1 to 2 yuan per km. Simply raise your hand, and a taxi appears in no time. But you'd better choose a taxi with a business permit, and before you disembark from a taxi ride, ask the driver for a receipt.
  • Subway:
    Subways are another convenient means of transportation for those traveling in downtown. So far subways are available in four Chinese cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Tianjin.
  • Bicycle:
    There are bicycles for rent in some hotels in Beijing and some other tourist cities. Riding old-fashioned pedicabs for a tour of Beijing's hutongs and back alleys proves a unique tourist experience.
