Located in Qingdao’s rapidly developing Hongdao District, HICEC is conveniently located near major transportation hubs. The new Qingdao-Jiaodong International Airport, which is scheduled to open in late 2019, is just 15 minutes away by subway (Qingdao-Jiaodong International Airport is the first airport in China to have access to high speed rail and subways within the airport terminals).
HICEC is also located near the new Hongdao High Speed Railway Station. Completed in 2019, the Hongdao High Speed Railway Station is the terminus for the new Qingdao-Beijing and Qingdao-Shanghai bullet trains, which take just three to four hours travel time. By using a new expressway, downtown Qingdao can be reached from HICEC in just 45 minutes. Using Metro Line 8, which stops at the north side of HICEC, downtown Qingdao can be reached in under an hour.
