How to get to the Yiwu International Trade City
There are no international flights heading to Yiwu. The easiest way to get here is by flying to Shanghai and then take the high-speed train.
It takes roughly 2.5 hours and the train tickets can be purchased at the Hongqiao railway station.
While in Yiwu, there are a number of hotels in various price ranges. Go to Motel 168 if you’re on a low budget.
If you want something more upscale, then you might want to consider the Crowne Plaza or the Tian Heng International Hotel.
Getting around in Yiwu is quite easy. There are taxis, but don’t expect them to understand a single word of English or any other language than Chinese.
If you’ve hired a Yiwu agent, it’s customary that they pick you up and drive you around to visit various wholesalers.
