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)

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

Reply5/22/2012 8:00:06 PMJudy Thoma ,   United States

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?

Reply5/11/2012 8:32:10 PMSam ,   Singapore

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.

Hi, 1000 rm for Mutianyu? Thats a ripe off!!!! You should be able to get it for 500 rmb full day, no need to pay food or other expenses for the driver.

Sunny :3/20/2012 7:17:00 PM

no pedicabs or tricycles are available in Wangfujing area.
the taxi fare for a round-trip to Mutianyu will be more than CNY 1,000, so i suggest you to reserve a one-day tour to Mutianyu at:

Thank you bonnie

i believe a normal taxi is to small, because the carton boxes are very big (each 154x85x27cm). Do you know the price for a van taxi also?

Thanks

Bonnie :5/3/2012 7:41:32 PM

well then you really need a van taxi.
i'm not sure about the price, probably around CNY 200, but you can bargain with the driver.

we are 2 people and we will arrive at the beijing capital airport with 2 bicycles (each in a cartonbox)and 2 additional luggages. which kind of taxi do we need and what is the taxi fare to Xicheng district?
