Informations to the participants

A bus will be expecting people on Sunday May 13th at the Toulon TGV station at 16h40 at the arrival of TGV 6177 from Paris departing Paris Gare de Lyon at 12h49 And for departure, we will also foresee a bus for the TGV 6122 departing Toulon at 19h20 on Thursday May 17th .

Please let us know what your plans are. We are expecting most people to take the plane to Paris and stay one night in Paris. But if a large number of Chinese participants are arriving in the morning of 13th in Marseille via Lufthansa (Germany), we can organise a bus from Marseille Airport. Same for return on 17th.

Toulon-Hyeres has also an airport but it is not well served internationally, and from the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, you either need to change airport or take the train to Toulon. Depending on your arrival time in Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, you might have to stay one night in Paris.
