Generally, the taxi can only take you from one site to the other, but won't wait for you while the visit. So, it is suggested you rent a car from eHi Car Services. You can find their counters on the 1st floor of the Arrival Hall in T2 and the car rental experience hall on the 1st floor of T3. It generally costs CNY300 or so for a normal car.

I get into Beijing airport at 5:30pm and want to go straight to Mutianyu Great Wall, stay the night, and return to the airport for a flight the next day at 2pm

Any idea how much a taxi would be each way, as it is an overnight stay so we cant hire someone to wait?

Thank you

Mutianyu is about 50km from the PEK. You can take taxi to get there and return. It might cost CNY200 or so by taxi for one way by.

If taking a taxi, it might cost around CNY300 to reach the hotel.


Im looking to travel from the Loong Palace (317 Changping Rd, Changping Qu, China, 102206) into the city centre, and back again (after finishing activities etc.). The return trip will likely be a night one - and it will probably be on a weekend. What would be the best way to travel to/from town? Thanks!

Kyah, the best way must be taking a taxi as there will be many transits taking public transportation means. It would cost CNY75 or so for one way.

1. You need to hail 2 cabs and the fare might be around CNY150 per cab for one way.
2. In this case, it is suggested you join a one day tour to Mutianyu at BJ Tourist Dispatch Center near the Exit B of Xuanwumen Metro Station. The cost is CNY120 per person.

Hello! How much is a taxi fare from Tiananmen Square to the Capital airport? Do budget hotels in Beijing provide assistance of getting a taxi? We staying in the budget hotel and I wonder if I could expect the front desk get us a taxi when we check out or do we need to make arrangements ourselves upfront? Thank you for your time! Angela

A taxi ride from Tiananmen Square to the airport might cost CNY120 or so. Some hotels can provide taxi calling service. It is suggested you ask the staff in advance.Alternatively, you can take subway line 1 from Tiananmen Square to Jianguomen, and transfer to line 2 to Dongzhimen, then take airport express there. It only costs CNY30.

We arrive in Beijing on February 24, 2017 at 11:30am and have a connecting flight to Nanjing the same day at 8:20pm.We want to visit The Forbidden City, The Great Wall and Tiananmen Square. Can you advise what is the best way to get all of this done? And obviously in time to catch our flight to Nanjing.

What's a fare from Beijing airport to Beijing Lijingwan Hotel (28 North Shilipu, Donghsihuan Road, Beijing) at 10AM.

Chris ( Turkey ) :2/4/2017 1:57:35 AM

You are suggested to take airport shuttle bus line 12 to Balizhuang at a fare of CNY21. Then walk eastwards and turn south onto Shilibao Road. After a few yards, you will see the hotel.

We are arriving at Beijing airport on 10/1/17 at 14.45 - depart after 10 hours on 11/1/17 at 1.05.
How much for a taxi to take us to see the main downtown sights (Forbidden City,Tiananman Square & ??) and back to the airport in time for our flight? Thanks

Raj, I heard the Forbidden City stops ticketing at 15:30. I'm afraid you may not reach by that time from the airport even by taxi.
It is suggested you charter a car at the branches of Ehi Car Service at the airport. You can find the business hall on 1F of T1 and T2. The rental for an average car is CNY200~400 depending on different car types.
You are advised to go to Tiananmen Square first. After visiting there, you may walk northwards and pass by the Forbidden City to Jingshan Park. Climb up the hill inside and you can have a full view of the Forbidden City.
After that, take the car to Shichahai, which is famous for housing the distinctive hutongs. You may eat some snacks and have a drink there.
And then get back to the airport before 24:00.

When flights are densely arranged, many passengers may line up to catch a cab. In this case, you may spend half an hour or longer to successfully hail one. Good luck anyway!

Mary ( Canada ) :10/26/2016 9:07:12 PM

It takes about 30 to 60 minutes to check out. You can get a cab within 10 minutes. It takes about 40 to 50 minutes to the downtown area, and the fare may be around CNY 90 by the way.

having 10 hour layover in Beijing on Saturday April 7, 2016. Can I have a taxi from Airport to Great Wall then go to Hutong, Beijing.
1/ Could we arrange for the trip and how much it is?
2/ is traffic bad on Saturday?
3/ If we skip Hutong trip, can we have enough time to go to Great Wall + Forbidden City in Beijing, then go back to the airport on time?

Thank you

Lee ( Germany ) :10/18/2016 8:58:10 PM

You are advised to go to Mutianyu Great Wall, about 35 miles (57km) from the airport. Traffic is not good on Saturday. I am afraid that the layover is not enough to cover the Great Wall and Hutong/ Forbidden City in the downtown area. You should take a cab to Mutianyu Great Wall from PEK. After visiting, return back to PEK to catch your onward flight. The fare may be around CNY 600 for a round trip. :)

How much would a taxi cost from PEK to East Train Station around 5 PM? (Planning to take the train from there to Jixian.)

And a taxi from PEK to Jixian Marriott?

Considering both options.
