Maling Shaolin Kung Fu Academy is an institute for learning traditional Shaolin Martial Arts and Chinese Kung Fu. It is located in the suburb of Xinyi City, which has very convenient transportation in the north of Jiangsu, preceded only by Xuzhou and Lianyungang. The city is 50 km away from either Lianyungang Baitabi Airport or Xuzhou Guanyin Airport. Xinyi has a physical land mass of 1,571 square kilometers and its population is close one million.
Situated in a transit belt from the north subtropical region, Xinyi has a maritime monsoon climate, a mild and humid climate with distinct four seasons. The annual average temperature is about 14ºC around. More than two dozens of historical sceneries are recommended to visit. The best tourist sites include the Maling Mountain, or the Horse Tomb Mountain, and the well-known Huating Prehistoric Relics is located in the region.
The Lake Luoma is one more tourist destination. An ancient town, the Yaowan Town, is 45 km away from the urban area of Xinyi, presenting you its ancient houses, streets, relics, etc. left from the Ming or the Qing dynasties. The academy is within Maling Mountain Scenic Zone, which is ranked one of the 4-AAAA tourist attractions in China. Maling Mountain is honored by the Emperor Qianlong of Qing Dynasty as "The First Scenery”.
How to get here
You need to purchase the flight tickets on your own. From your home country, we recommend you to travel either over Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou. From there, there are different ways to get to the academy.
There are two airports close to the academy. The first one is Xuzhou Guanyin Airport which is the further from the Academy; the second one Lianyungang Baitabu Airport which is closer to the Academy.
There are some direct trains from Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing to Xinyi, where we will pick you up for free. There are more fast bullet trains travel from Beijing and Shanghai to Xuzhou east station. It is also possible to take a train from Xuzhou to Xinyi.
From 7 in the morning to 10 in the evening there are trains leaving from both Shanghai and Beijing to Xuzhou every 15 minutes. From there you can easily get to Xinyi either by train, bus or taxi. We can also pick you up there if you wish.
There are two types of trains with two different sets of prices. There are the slow regular trains with beds and a traveling time of 8-10 hours from both Beijing and Shanghai for approximately 170yuan (26$) for hard sleeper and 260yuan(40$) for soft sleeper.
The other option is the fast bullet trains that will take you the same distance but in only 2,5/3 hours and with 300km an hour. The prices for those trains are a bit higher but the time is reduced and the comfort is increased. 300 for second class and 519 for first class.
Second class in the fast bullet trains are highly recommended.
