you can contact the Beijing Public Security Bureau to report your lost.
if you remember the number of the taxi, you can contact the taxi company.

Is it possible to pre-book a taxi by e-mail (to send a map, write persons name to be met, to get written confirmation)? Where does the pre-booked taxi driver meet passangers in the Beijing Capital Airport, in taxi stand? Is one taxi enough for 3 thin persons with 2 suitcases?

there is no way to pre-book a taxi by e-mail.
actually you do not have to pre-book a taxi.
there are you taxi stands outside the arrival hall, where you will find many taxies.
one taxi is enough for 3 person with 2 suitcases.
you'd better get prepared in advance. check the approximate costs from the airport to your destination and put down the Chinese and English name of your destination.
good luck!

do not worry, it is not difficult to get a taxi at that time.
you may also catch the last shuttle bus.

We are staying at the Capital Hotel in Beijing from 5th to 8th October and need transport to Tianjin Cruise Port to arrive by 12 noon. What is the best way to travel with two heavy suitcases?

the best way is to hire a taxi or rent a car to get to the port directly. the fare is about CNY 700 and takes about 2 hours if there is no traffic jam.
you can also try to find a travel agency which provide this kind of service.
or you can take a taxi to the beijing South Railway Station, then take the morning intercity express train to Tanggu station, and then a taxi to the Port. (about 2 hours and the cost is around CNY 300)

Can you please tell me how much it will cost to take a taxi from Beijing Airport to Novotel Peace Hotel? And will it be easy to find a taxi during a Saturday afternoon?

where can I find a van for 9 people to the great wall in beijing haidan district?

Sam :5/23/2012 7:04:38 PM

a normal taxi or a mini van cannot take 9 people at a time. i think you can only rent a mini bus from some bus rental company.
actually, you can take a private tour to the great wall, which you will have your bus, driver and tour guide.
you can reserve such a tour from Beijingtrip.com

Hi, may i know how much the taxi fare from Beijing city (near 3rd ring road) to Badaling Great Wall ? round trip ? single trip?

Lucy :5/12/2012 6:25:29 PM

Taxis from Beijing city to Badaling won't meter, so you have to negotiate the price with the taxi driver before getting on the taxi. Usually, it costs CNY300 or more for a single trip, since the taxi driver has to add the free running fee for the back way.
For a round-trip, it costs around CNY500.
