Situated in the central-east of the country, Hefei can be easily accessed by plane or by train.
By plane: Hefei Xinqiao International Airport (HFE) is the main airport which connects to most of major cities in China. International flight can be connected in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou etc. We recommend foreign attendees to fly to Hefei if possible.
By train: Hefei has two major railway stations, Hefei Station and Hefei South Station. It takes only two hours to get to Shanghai by high-speed train and four hours to get to Beijing. Please note that most high speed trains from Shanghai to Hefei depart from Shanghai Hongqiao Station. If you arrive at Hongqiao Airport, you can take a train directly to Hefei in the terminal. But if your international flight land on Shanghai Pudong International Airport, you will need extra one more hour to transit from Pudong airport to Hongqiong Station.
