Kaifeng, Henan - China 2017

Kaifeng, Henan - an ancient capital of 3,000 years old ! Get ready CNY300-400 to budget for entrance fees as the popular tourist sites cost CNY30 - 120 per entry should you decide to enter all the sites ! However, senior citizens aged over 65+ are entitled for a 50% discount if you are able to present your passport to validate your birth year to the ticketing counter.

Transport: The distance between Xi'an & Kaifeng is approx. 534km, so we opted for a high speed train (2nd class CNY260) departing Xi'an at 09.29 arriving Kaifeng at 11.30. The high speed trains travel at a speed of slightly over 300km per hr, the seat is pretty comfortable like sitting in a plane ! For our return journey, again we bought a high speed train ticket departing in the early afternoon so this gave us the entire morning to see a bit more on this ancient Kaifeng city !
