I arrive at PEK at 1 am and need to travel to Shanghai. Does the airport close overnight? Can I wait at airport for a morning flight? Is the metro open so I could travel to South Railway Station to take the first high speed train to Shanghai? Trying to decide. Thank you

it will arrive at the Beijing Railway Station.

My flight arrives at 12 noon on Friday, Sept. 30 in Beijing. To get to Jinan, I have to take a train from Beijing South Railway Station. What train can I take and how long will it take me to transfer from airport to train station? What is the earliest time I can take the train from Beijing South to Jinan? Is the train going to start from Beijing or from somewhere else? How much is the train ticket for the transfer from airport to Beijing South Railway?

hi Mike,
there are express train from Beijing south Railway station to Jinan.
you can check the train schedule here on this page:
http://www.beijingtrip.com/china-train/.
it takes you about one hour and 40 minutes from the airport to the railway station.
since you arrive on Sept. 30, and it is the day before the National Day Golden Week of China, i suggest you booking the train ticket in advance.

hi,
there is no direct train from Beijing to Anping county. you can take a bus from the Zhaogongkou Long-distance Bus Station.
from the airport, you can take airport shuttle bus line 7 to Qicikou stop, and take bus No. 525 or 610 to Zhaogongkou Qiaonan stop, and walk southward along the road for about 100 meters, you will find the long-distance Bus Station.

Please could you tell me what trian station we would use if arriving at bejing airport and wish to take a night train to Xi'an to see terracotta army. Thanks judy

Beijinger :9/12/2011 11:27:08 PM

of course taxi is much faster. it takes only 25 muninutes by taxi but about 40 minutes by subway(but there's no direct subway, and you have to transfer for once).
the taxi fare is CNY 25, while the subway fare is CNY 2.

Please explain how to get from PEK Airport to Beijing West Train Station?

hi Adri,
i suggest you take the normal train to Beijing, for the high speed train arrives at Beijing South Railway station, which is far from Beijing Railway Station.
train ticket need to be booked 10 day in advance. so you may find a travel agency to book the ticket for you.
you can enquire the ticket here:

yes, i think you need to book both the hotel and the train ticket.
the train tickets can be booked ten days before your departure date.
as for the hotel, at least one week in advance.
