Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport (XMN) is located on the northeast Xiamen Island, 10 kilometers (about 6.2 miles) far away to the city center taking about 10 min by car.

Tips: the subtle bus from Xiamen airport is leaving at 08:40 back to Xiamen city every day. However, there is no subtle bus from Xiamen city to airport. Tourists can take taxi or public bus to airport instead.

Most trains will stop in Xiamen train station of the center of Xian; most D-train from Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanjing and others places will stop in Xiamen north train station.
