hi Harris,
there's no direct buses, so i suggest you to take a taxi. it takes about 30 minutes and costs about CNY 60.

Please suggest I am planning to visit china in june, we are making a booking in Park Hyatt, Chaoyang District
But we suppose to go daily to fengtai district for some official work. Does easily transportation is available, if its how much time will it take to reach over there.

hi sid,
i suggest you to take a bus, taxi, or subway to the railway station.
there is a underground parking lot under the railway station, charging CNT 5 per hour.
the route is a little bit complicated, so you can ask the traffic police for help.

There are trains to Cangzhou both from Beijing Railway station and Beijing South Railway Station. You can buy the tickets at either of the train stations in Beijing. You may also buy the tickets from the train tickets offices distributed in Beijing City in advance.

Is their a bus that can take me from Beijing Capital Airport to the Beijing Railway station South where I desire to take the bullet train there to Tianjin?

it is not the only train, there are trains depart at 07:20, 10:45, 12:35, 16:55, 18:50, 20:25.
you can buy the ticket at the nearby rail ticket windows if there are any, or you need to go to the railway station.

leah ( United States ) :2/15/2011 8:14:00 PM

Is this the only train? Are there more departure times? and can I purchase a ticket from the hotel or do I have to go to the station in person?
tks, Leah

Lily :7/11/2010 9:01:00 PM

you can take the intercity express railway from Beijing South Railway Station to Tanggu Railway Station. in order to catch your cruise, you need to take Train No. C2271, which departs at 07:20 from Beijing and arrives at 08:14 at Tanggu. the ticket fare is CNY 58 for the second class and CNY 69 for the first class. the taxi fare from Tanggu Railways Station to the Port is about CNY 15.


I will arrive to Beijing capital airport on the 19th of february, and would like to go to Tianjin straight away.
Is it easier to get a bus straight from the airport, or how can i get to the fast train which gets to Tianjin in 30 minutes?
Looking forward to your answer.

do you mean the railway ticket from Beijing to HK?
you need to go to Beijing West Railway Station to buy the tickets.
it is CNY 266 for a hard seat, CNY 449/465/480 for hard sleeper (third/second/first floor), and 707/738 for soft sleeper (second/first floor).
