For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Thanks Richard for that tip.  I have someone from my work picking me up at the airport, and that is why I wasn't able to take the flight that Simon offered which arrives a bit before midnight.  It would be too late to get picked up. 

But this info is good in case I run into problems with a ride.  By the way, this will be my first time in Changchun and in China, so my guess is I'll be using this site quite often.

Michael - I don't know if you know Changchun but a taxi from the airport will be about 80-100 RMB into the centre of town


there is a speed train but this stops at about 8-9 pmAlso, coaches but do not know anything about them!

Hey Simon,

Thanks for the info on the visa and the airlines.  The flight is a bit late for me, but I found one with the following info for the same day:

China Eastern Air – Flight 726 2h 15m
Take-off Fri 8:05a HKG Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Landing Fri 10:20a PVG Shanghai, SH, China
Coach | Airbus A320-100/200 (Narrow-body Jet) | 2h 15m
Connection PVG Shanghai, SH, China
4h 20m
China Eastern Air – Flight 5629 2h 20m
Take-off Fri 2:40p PVG Shanghai, SH, China
Landing Fri 5:00p CGQ Changchun, JL, China

The itinerary looks ok and the listed price on Kayak is a bit pricy: $366 incl. taxes.  Would you by any chance have connections for a lower rate?

The flight leaves Hong Kong at 18:20pm and arrives in Changchun at 23:50pm

So a one-way ticket would be ok

With regarding to your visa issue, I couldn't find anything online mentioning it.

Hi Simon,


You wrote, "There is actually a direct flight leaving HK on Friday 26th August directly to Changchun with 20 minute refueling stop in Guangzhou, that ticket is 1850RMB including tax."

That sounds like the best price I can get right now.  When does it fly out of Hong Kong?  The earlier the better for me.   And what is the best way we can work this out?

Another quick question:   I am coming into Changchun on a Business Visa - do I need a R/T ticket?  Or is one way ok?
