It's about 55 km from the port to Tianjin train station. There are dozens of high-speed trains from Tianjin train station to Beijing South trian station daily. upon arrival at Beijing South train station, you cna take a taxi to the hotel within 30 minutes, for there is no direct bus or subway.

you can take the bullet train from Changchun to Beijing, but there are only fast trains from Beijing to Guangzhou which travels over 20 hours.

Hi, I will fly to Beijing and need to go to Cangzhou, Hebei, I heard the train is rather easy, but need to buy ticket in advance, I donĀ“t dare to buy it since not certain that will arrive on time. Are there other choices of getting to Cangzhou straight from airport? Which train station shall I go? Thanks

Hi Norma,
when will you arrive in Beijing?
the train tickets are only difficult to buy during holidays.
you do not need to buy in advance if not in holidays.
you can also take buses, but the bus tickets would also be difficult to get during holidays.
so you'd better take the train.
there are many trains from Beijing to Cangzhou everyday, you can book a train that 5, 6 hours later after your arrival time in case the flight may be late.

you can take a taxi to the Tanggu Railway Station, and then take a bullet train to Beijing South Railway station. transfer to the subway line 4 and change to subway line 2 at Xuanwumen station, and finally take subway line 5 at Chongwenmen station. Get off at Dengshikou Station, exit from Exit C you will find the hotel about 150 meter away.

you can take the airport shuttle bus from the airport to the railway station.
then take a bullet train to Beijing South Railway station. the bus fare is CNY 15 and it takes about 40 minutes.
from the Beijing South Railway Station, you can take subway line 4 to Beijing University East Gate and exit from Exit A, then walk northward along the Zhongguancun North Street for about 500 meters you will find the Tsinghua University.

Hi, I am travelling from Shanghai to Beijing by high speed train on Friday. From there I need to get to the airport. Which station will I arrive at? I believe there is no public tansport that can bring me directly to the airport, so how much would cost by taxi? How long would it take on Friday afternoon/evening?
Thank you!

You will arrive at Beijing South Railway Station. There is airport shuttle between Beijing SOuth railway station and capital airport in fact, and the ticket price is CNY16 per person. If you choose to take a taxi, it costs around CNY120 and takes at least one hour.

Please, advise me how can I get to The Central Beijing Railway Station from Beijing Capital International Airport? I need to buy ticket to Changsha, can I buy it in the airport (is there any book office?) or I'll have to buy it in the railway book office? I must immediately this day go to Changsha. Thank you.
P.S. How can I book the ticket to Changsha (from Central Beijing railway station)now?

Lisa :7/10/2012 6:41:09 PM

there is no central Beijing Railway Station. do you mean Beijing West Railway Station or Beijing Railway Station, as there are trains to Changsha.
there is no ticket office in the airport, and it is not possible to get the ticket of the same day, so you'd better book the ticket in advance through a ticket/travel agency.

I will be flying to Beijing to get on a cruise sailing from Tianjin in November. I am planning to stay a few days in Beijing before heading to Tianjin. Is there a express bus or shuttle going straight to the Tianjin cruise terminal? and where I can get on one? If I want to go for the bullet train, which train station should I go? and how far is the Tianjin train station from the ship terminal?

There are long-distance buses from Beijing Bawangfen, Sihui, Yongdingmen and Zhaogognkou Bus stations to YTianjin Port. I advise you take the Beijing-tianjin Inter-city train from Beijing South Train Station. Then take a taxi to Tianjin port.

Can I get a ticket to get on an Airport Shuttle FROM a Beijing Railway (any one of them) to the Airport? If so how would I book this ticket Please.

the ticket for the airport shuttle bus can not be booked and there is also no need to book the ticket. it is like a public bus, which runs frequently.
