About the Location  

Weifang is a city in Shandong Province.

Weifang is a prefecture-level city in central Shandong province, People's Republic of China. It borders Dongying to the northwest, Zibo to the west, Linyi to the southwest, Rizhao to the south, Qingdao to the east, and looks out to the Laizhou Bay to the north.

   
How to Reach  

By train

The train station is very new and comfortable when compared to other cities in the province.

Weifang is on the main line from Jinan to Qingdao and by bullet train it's about 2 hours to Jinan and only an hour to get to Qingdao. There's plenty of transport outside the station, however the immediate surrounding area is undergoing heavy construction (welcome to Weifang).

By bus

There are two main bus stations in Weifang, one of which is undergoing construction and is located across the train station. The other one is down the road from the train station - one kilometer or so.

With the new bullet trains, short-distance buses see much less passengers, however during holidays are sometimes the only way to go. As there is no pre-booking of bus tickets, simply show up the day (morning is better) you want to go.
