Hi guys,
i am in Zhenghzhou (henan) right now, and i was wondering if anyone know ,how to get to the main sites around the city (shaolin temple, Kaifeng ...) I want to visit the area in 3 days, if it is possible???.... and of course i am trying to find a cheap accomodation (backpackers hostel), while i am touring Henan....Does anyone know of a reliable and cheap agency based in Zhenzhou, who will take me to the main sites in Henan????if anyone has done this journey before, please let me know of the main itinerary, and the cost of the journey...
Thanks for your reply...I would like to leave zhengzhou, in the next three days...Thanks again Nadia

Hi,Dianam,
I have been two Henan in 2004,my itinerary is:
Beijing---Zhengzhou---Kaifeng---Shaolin Temple---Luoyang---Jiyuan---Zhengzhou---Beijing.7days,1400RMB.

From Zhengzhou to Kaifeng,you'd better take a bus in the coach station in the opposite of railway station,about 1.5 hour,19RMB.

Kaifeng is a nice city,and everything is cheap,1 day is enough,I stay in Song Du Hotel,it is a little expensive,150RMB.

There was no bus from kaifeng to Shaolin Temple directly,you should change a bus in Zhengzhou,the same station I mentioned right now,also 1.5 hours,18 or 19RMB,sorry,I forgot it!

I stayed two day in Shaolin Temple,so nice place!Maybe places will be chose for lived!!!

Good luck!

Luoyang takes about 2 hours by train from Zhengzhou. Possibly longer by bus. If you're only going to see the Longmen Grottoes then a daytrip is sufficient; else you'll need to stay overnight.

Hi,Dianam,

I only stayed in Luoyang one day,and visited Long Men Cave,you can from Zhengzhou to Shaolin,and then from Shaolin to Luoyang!

It will take less than 3 hours from Luoyang to Zhengzhou,don't worry about this!Ther were many buses between the two city!

Have a nice trip!

By the way,most of the ways were highway,it is very convenient.

For the ticket:Shaolin Temple was 40RMB,and Longmen Cave was 80RMB.

Good luck!
