about CNY 600 - 700 per cab.
you can also take an airport bus from the beijing airport to Tanggu or Tianjin if you miss the bus to Tanggu, and then take taxi, which saves you at least CNY 300.

How much would a taxi cost From BCIA to Forbidden city and return with some waiting time?

Reply3/9/2013 9:39:58 AMFrank ,   United States

David :3/11/2013 8:19:48 PM

that depends on how long the waiting time is. actually you don't need to ask the taxi to wait for you, affter you visit the Forbidden City, you will exit from its north gate, and it would be easy for you to get a taxi there. the fare for a single trip is about CNY 100 per cab.

Hello how much is a ride from Beijing capital airport to Badaling
?I mean a roundtrip fare.as i.need to go back to the airport afterwards.Thank you

Joice :1/29/2013 5:49:36 PM

the taxi fare for a round-trip to Badaling is about CNY 600 per cab.
if i were you, i'd like to book one-day trip to the Badaling Great Wall through a travel agency. the cost for one person is almost the same as the taxi fare, plus you will be provided with a comfortable privite car and a professtional guide. the price would be lower if you have more people in the group.
see the beijing one-day tours at:
or you can tailor-make a tour according to your schedule:


My husband and I will be arriving by cruise ship at Tianjin on 1 April 2013 and have organised a transfer from the ship to Beijing. We will be dropped off at: Metro Park Lido Hotel (formerly Holiday Inn) Jiangtai Road, Chaoyang District.

We will need to get a taxi from Jiangtai Road Chaoyang District to Beijing Capital Airport.

We will have 2 luggage cases and will go to airport around the middle of the day.

1. Cost for both of us with our luggage to the international airport (flying out with Singapore Airlines)

2. Where should we get a reputable taxi from

3. Approximately how long would it take at that time of the day.

Thank you so much for your help

It's not advised to take a taxi fromt he airport to Badaling directly, since the taxi driver may mot meter and wil ask for aroud CNY300 for a single ride. You are a gopurp of 5 an take so much luggage, then you will have to take 2 taxis.

the taxi fare is CNY 100 - 120.
if you live in a hotel, you can ask the front desk of the hotel to reserve a taxi with an extra charge of CNY 3 per cab.

Thanks for recommendations. I have 2 more questions: Is it easiest to purchase a train ticket(Shanghai-Beijing) at the Hotel where I am staying (The Bund Riverside? What's the normal surcharge?

Reply10/31/2012 8:24:15 PMHuan ,   United States

James :11/1/2012 7:16:11 PM

the hotel ususally provides ticket booking service, but usually a surcharge of 20 % of the ticket price will be charged.

actually, there is a ticket outlet near your hotel, you can buy the tikcet on your own, and the surcharge is only CNY 5 per ticket.

you can walk east along the East Beijing Road in front of your hotel for about 300 meters, and turn right to the Middle Jiangxi Road at the taffice light. you will find it after 40 meters' walk..

Can you tell me how long does it take to travel by taxi between Beijing Capital International Airport and Beijing Rail Station? And how much does it cost? Thanks.

1. the hotel is not far from the Shanghai Railway Station, which is only 15 minutes by taxi. there are three overnight trains from Beijing to Shanghai: D314, D322, and D312. all the three trains arrive in Beijing at around 07:00 or 08:00. you can check the schedule at:
2. from the beijing railway station or beijing south railway station, you can take the airport shuttle bus to the airport. the bus trip to the airport is no more than 2 hours. so you have enough time to catch the flight.
have a nice trip!
