Hi Tan,
the subway fare within Beijing city is CNY 2 per person, except for the airport express line.
1). what is the exact location of you in Dongcheng District? you can take the subway line 2 to Xuanwumen station, and then line 4 to Beijing south Railway station.
2). take the airport shuttle bus from Tianjin railway station to Tianjin Binhai aiport. travel time is about 40 minutes and the cost is CNY 15 per person.

What is the nearest subway stop to the Rosedale Hotel in the Chao Yang District?

Hi Frank,
the nearest subway station is the Sanyuanqiao station of Line 10 and airport express line. it is about 2.5 km from the hotel.

I have a 9 hr 50 min layover between flights and would like to visit the great wall.

The airline is arranging a day visa and a room for the layover.

Can you suggest the easiest way to travel to the wall and return?

I understand there is considerable traffic and I cannot miss the flight.

hi James,
there is no direct bus from the airport to the great wall, so i suggest you to hire a taxi to take you a round -trip to the Badaling Great Wall.
it takes about 2 - 3 hours on the way for a round-trip, and you can spend 3 hours in the great wall. and you'd better leave the rest of time for boarding procedures.
the taxi fare should no more than CNY 500.

if by subway, you need to take subway airport express line to Dongzhimen, and line to to Jianguomen. exit from Exit C and you still have 400 meter to walk.
so i think buses are more convenient.

siew ( Malaysia ) :11/9/2011 12:34:30 AM

Is it more convenient to take the airport subway? if yes, can you kindly give me the station and route. Thanks.

Judy :11/1/2011 6:58:49 PM

Hi Siew,
from the airport to your hotel: you can take airport shuttle bus line 1 to Bai Jia Zhuang stop, then bus No. 750 or 43 to Jian Guo Men Nan stop.
you will find the hotel after you get off the bus.
