airport pick up yiwu fair
Transportation from Shanghai Airport to Yiwu:

#1 You can go to Shanghai south railway station by airport bus, get on a train to Yiwu,(choose these less than 3.5 hours trains), then take a taxi to your hotel.

Total cost will be around 20USD. But you need to buy tickets by yourself, if the tickets are not available, you have to wait for some time, get off bus and buy train tickets again, get off train and find a right taxi…

And your flight arrival time must be between 07:00 - 22:00 (GMT+08:00), otherwise there will be no airport buses. Only three trains leave Shanghai south railway station for Yiwu from 22:00 to 06:00 in next morning.

#2 Get someone picks you up at airport, then directly drive you to Yiwu.

This way costs more than 100USD. If you need an all-the-way tour guide, you need to pay 40USD more.

It only saves 1-2 hours on average. Sometimes, it's even slower. So not that value for money!

Tour Guides/Translators

translation yiwu fair
A Yiwu tour guide (translator) usually costs 30USD - 35USD/day (8 hours).

But here I strongly recommend you hire our tour guides.

They not those Yiwu tour guides who just went through a several month’s English training class and can intentionally translate some "wrong numbers".

One famous case happened last year was that one translator interpreted the price "seven" as "eleven", because that supplier was not her "partner". Shocking? Urm… very shocking!

Our translators are all students from Zhejiang University, one of the Top 3 China universities. They majored in English, or International trade and went through a Yiwu Fair 2009 training program.

They are loyal interpreters that will never translate "seven" as "eleven"!

Prices: One day - 40USD, 2 days - 75USD, 3 days – 88USD.


restaurant yiwu fair
Where to eat? No problem. Yiwu is quite international. You can easily find Brazil barbeque, Istanbul Muslim dishes, Koran restaurants.

Our tour guides all have a list of them in hand. You can have a fabulous meal after a tiring day inside the expo center. Big treat, ah? I like that.


sightseeing yiwu fair
Yiwu market sightseeing is a must-do if you come to Yiwu. Most people will certainly not miss the opportunity to visit the so called "world supermarket" - Yiwu International Trade City.

If you need tour guide, our tour guide will be happy to go with you.

You can also pay a visit to Hangzhou, a top10 tourist destination in China for its city beauty and leisure life style after Yiwu Fair 2009. Our tour guides are all from Hangzhou, you can get lots of information from them.
