Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

From Siping, trains go in four directions. The major routes are North-East towards Changchun-Harbin and South-West towards Shenyang-Beijing, both being served by bullet trains as well as slower trains. In addition, there are connections going North-West towards Tongliao in Inner-Mongolia, and South-East towards Liaoyuan. Only slower trains run on these routes.

The two major passenger railway stations in Siping are: Siping Station (四平站) and Siping East station (东四平站). In addition, there are two smaller stations on the outskirts of town that seem to mostly serve local traffic: Ping East station (平东站) in the South-East, and Tiaozi He station (条子河) in the West

Siping station (四平站, sì píng zhàn) is located in the middle of the city, practically forming the border between the Tiexi and Tiedong districts. From here, trains go in all four directions, but it only serves the slower K-, Z- and T-type trains. A trip from here to Shenyang or Changchun takes about 1 to 1.5 hours, depending on the amount of intermediate stops.

Siping East station (东四平站 ,dōng sì píng zhàn) is located at the far east end of the city and connects it to the extensive Chinese network of G- and D-type bullet trains. A trip from here to Shenyang or Changchun takes about 30 to 45 minutes, both without intermediate stops.
