We provide buses from Shanghai to help people get to the event. However, if you are travelling from another city or from abroad you may want to look into other options.
The event location is private land located about 25 minutes west from Anji City. The site is called TianJenWenYuan in the town of HangGaizhen in Anji county or translated 浙江省湖州市安吉县杭垓镇天泇 山文创园 (you can put this in your GPS). This private land is a small peninsula along the Fushi Reservoir.
If you are travelling from Shanghai using the buses we provide you will need either a bus ticket or a combined ticket on the date and time you intend to travel to the Burn. The buses will pick up in front of the Shanghai Museum, near People’s Square (on Yan’an East Road, in-between Huangpi North Road and Xizang Middle Road).
Go to People’s Square Station on Line 1, Line 2 or Line 8. Leave by exit 3 and walk south down Xizang Middle road. Turn right when you get to Yan’an East Road and you will see Shanghai Museum on your right.
Ask for Shanghai Museum on Yan’an East Road (say Shanghai Bo-wu-gwan, Yen-an-dong Lu). Or show them this address:
If you are getting a taxi from the airport do not book a taxi inside the airport. They will rip you off. Go to the official taxi line. There will be a large queue but it moves a lot quicker than you would expect (Shanghai is really good for this).
From A Shanghai Train Station
You can take the Subway, either Line 2 from Hongqiao Train Station (takes around 30 minutes), Line 1 from Shanghai Railway Station (takes around 5 minutes) or from Shanghai South Railway Station (takes around 20 minutes) to People’s Square and follow the directions above.
From Pudong Airport
From Pudong Airport you can take the Maglev train to Longyang Road and change to Line 2. From there head to People’s Square and follow the directions above. This should take around 40 minutes, but may take up to an hour.
If you want to save money you can just take Line 2 from the airport, but it will take longer and be very crowded. Make sure you have at least an hour and a half to make it to People’s Square.
From Hongqiao Airport
Take Line 2 to People’s Square. It will take you around 30 minutes.
If you are travelling from Beijing you can go into Shanghai and catch one of our buses. You may also want to consider going to Hangzhou and travelling from there instead since it will be much quicker. There is a small group of people travelling from Beijing and it may help you to travel with them. If you email us or talk to us over WeChat we can connect you up to them.
From Hangzhou or Nanjing
Similar to Beijing you can come into Shanghai first. But it may be worth you getting a taxi or minibus directly to the site since it is closer to these two cities. Again, there are groups going from these two cities as well so if you email us or talk to us over WeChat we can connect you up to them.
From Outside Mainland China
If you are travelling in from another country, the easiest option will be to fly in to Shanghai. Make sure you have a tourist visa or a legal right to visit/reside in China. You will not be allowed to attend Dragon Burn using the 72 hour transit visa.
If you want to save time you may also consider flying to Hangzhou and making your own way to the site, since it is closer. We can help you get in touch with others planning to go from Hangzhou if you contact us.
