Hi Tina. No, not that Radegast but the Lakeview near the Cancer hospital on the S 2nd Ring Road. Thanks for trying

hi Harvey,
you can walk southward to the Chaoyang Park South Road to take bus No. 729 for 4 stops to XiaoZhuangLuKou North stop and walk southward along the road for about 430 meters to the Guanghua Road, and turn left to the Guanghua Road and walk for 90 meters, you will find the hotel.
or you can just take a taxi, which costs less than CNY 15.

Hi Mike

How to get to Longqingxia from Mutianyu great wall? What bus to take , how much is each bus fare and how long is the journey?

Take bus no. 920 (loope-line) to Yanqing City, transfer to bus no. 969 back to Huairou Bus Station, then take bus no. 916 to Mingzhu Square (Huairou International Conference Center), and take a mini-bus to Mutianyu Great Wall.


How to get to Home Inn at Qianmen from the Bawanfen Long Distance Bus Station? How much is the bus fare and how long is the journey?

How to get to Shanhaiguan from Home Inn Qianmen? How long is the journey and what is the bus fare?

Is it possible to go to Shanhaiguan from Mutianyu Great Wall? If can, how?




Reply4/2/2011 12:13:00 PMcindy ,   Malaysia

Kevin :4/2/2011 9:35:00 PM

I think you have to take a taxi from Bawangfen bus station to Home Inn Qianmen. It takes about 15-20 minutes and costs about CNY25. Shanhaiguan is located at Qinhuangdao, and you have to take a train from Beijing Railway Station to Shanhaiguan. Thus, you have to take Beijing subway line 2 from Qianmen to Beijing railway station first. It only takes 6 minutes and costs CNY2.
It's possible to go from Shanhaiguan to Mutianyu, but you have to go back to Beijing from Shanhaiguan first.


Is there a shuttle bus from Beijing to Tianjin airport?
If there is, can you guide me how?

Mike Wong :3/23/2011 10:40:00 PM

yes, you can go to Beijing Bawangfen Long-distance bus station, there are buses to the Tianjin airport. the bus departs at 07:30、09:30、10:30、12:30、16:30.
but if the there's traffic jam, it will influence your journey.
i suggest you go to the Beijing south Railway station to take the intercity express train to Tianjin Railway station, then take the airport shuttle bus at the railway station to the airport.

Hi Mike

Need some clarifications:-

a) How to get to Zhaogongkou Long Distance Bus Station from Zhaogongkou Qiao Xi Stop?
Is it far?

b) From Zhaogongkou Long Distance Bus Station, what bus to take to reach Datong?

c) Will it be easier or faster to take subway instead? If so, how?



Reply3/20/2011 6:08:00 AMcindy ,   Malaysia

Mike :3/20/2011 9:59:00 PM

don't worry cindy, it is very easy to find the long-distance bus station.
when you get off the bus, you can walk eastward along the road for about 100 meters and turn right at the corner, then walk for less than 200 meters you will find the long-distance bus station.
from the long-distance bus station, you can just go to the ticket office to the buy the ticket for the bus to Datong and find bus with a sign of "北京-大同", or you can ask the staff in the station and they will tell you which bus you should take.
there's no subway to Datong, only trains. trains are slower than bus (6 hours)


How to get to Datong from Tianenmen? What is the best mode of transportation and how?
and how many hours of travelling required?



Reply3/19/2011 10:57:00 AMcindy ,   Malaysia

Mike :3/20/2011 2:04:00 AM

do you mean Datong in Shanxi Province? if so, long-distance buses are fast and convenient.
you can walk to Qianmen bus stop to take a Bus No. 69 and get off at Zhaogongkou Qiao Xi (赵公口桥西)stop, then go to the Zhaogongkou Long-distance Bus Station to take the long-distance Bus to Datong.
it takes about 1 hour from Tiananmen to the long-distance bus station, then 4 to 5 hours to Datong.


How many hours of travelling required :

a) By bus 919 from Deshengmen to Badaling Great Wall

b) By bus 919 from Badaling Great Wall to Longqing Gorge
