Qingdao Liuting International Airport is the main international airport in Qingdao. It is about 25 kilometers from the airport to FIO or Royal Diamond International Hotel. Trainees can choose either taxis or shuttle buses.
By taxi: It will cost you about 90 RMB from the airport to FIO or Royal Diamond International Hotel. Please follow the taxi signs in the airport and do not take cars outside the airport because they are not licensed which may cost you much more money than the licensed taxi.

By shuttle bus: There are five shuttle lines operating between Qingdao Liuting International Airport and downtown.

  • Getting around in Qingdao
By taxi: Taxis in Qingdao are relatively abundant. Rates start at 11 RMB for the first 3 kilometers or 12 for fancier taxis (black color); rates are slightly higher after 11pm. You can hail a taxi in the street – if the box in the middle of the front windshield is red, the taxi is available for hire; green means it is occupied or on call.
By public transportation: Because of its hilly terrain, few people use bicycles or motorcycles in the city. Consequently, the public bus and subway (see Figure 5 for subway lines) are the main vehicle. Standard bus fare is 1 RMB; fare on an air-conditioned bus is 2 RMB. You can take bus No.314 or Subway Line 2 from FIO to downtown.
