it takes about 1-1.5 hours from Beijing West Railway station to Beijing Capital Airport. For international flight, passengers are advised to get to the airport 2 hours before the flight, so I think you may not able to catch your flight.

Hi, I would like to purchase 5 overnight sleeper train tickets from Beijing to Hong Kong. How many stops is this train. I was initially told that I had to purchase 20 days ahead of time so attempted yesterday for a 2/15 ticket departing Beijing and to arrive HK on 2/16. Now I am told that because of CNY, I must purchase 6 days ahead of time. I am worried I will not get tickets because I am told of these changes at the last mnnute Is this normal?

The train tickets are hard to got before the CHinese New Year, but it will be easier after the China New Year Eve, so I think you may be able to get the tickets.

You can get the train info. from the website below directly:
I think you should depart from Beijing West Railway Station if you plan to get to Shanghai in the morning.
You can take airport Shuttle Bus No. 1 to Dongzhimen and shift to Bus No. T2 to the railway station.
The train tickets can be bought at the railway station directly.

The train from Beijing to Guangzhou leaves at Beijing West Railway Station. Prices for hard seat, hard sleeper and soft sleeper are: 253RMB, 458RMB and 705RMB.

What is the distance from Beijing Railway Station to the West Railway Station. And about how long does it take to get from one station to the other. Thankyou

The airport bus is located out the back side of the West Train station. As you headout of the train station side to the right of the round-about and take the first right walk about 100 meters you'll see the buses and small office. You can buy the ticket after you board. They're 16 RMB.

beijingren ( China ) :10/12/2009 10:03:00 PM

Gongzhufen is less than two kilometers far from West Station. From Beijing West Railway Station, you can take a taxi to Gongzhufen and then catch the airport bus.

Hi plan to go Harbin from Beijing 1st week Dec 09. Please advise whether I could see the Ice Sculpture and is it snowing in Harbin. Is there a bullet train that run from beijing to harbin. Compare Yabuli Ski Resort and Nan Shan Ski resort which is better.

Shenzhou ( China ) :10/16/2009 10:12:00 PM

Yes. You can see the ice sculptures in Dec. There are bullet trains running from Beijing to Harbin: D25,D27.

Nanshan Ski Resort is located in Miyun County of Beijing. The Yabuli in Harbin should be larger and more professional.
