Well, it is cheapeast to go by train and fastest by direct long-distance bus. Here is their info for u to choose a proper way:
by bus: you can take one at local Liuliqiao Long-distance Bus Station. It takes around 4 hours to arrive and the bus fare is CNY85.

by train: the duration is 4.5-6 hours and the fare is CNY25.5-44.5 for a hard seat.

It is very far between the two cities, so no long-distance bus service is available. I recommend you take a high speed train to travel and the trains operate between Beijing West and Guangzhou South.

Hi. I want to go to Shidu Scenic Area in Fangshan District from Badaling. Can I arrive there (Shidu) by Bus No. 836 from Xizhimen Long Distance Bus Station? Do you know the departing schedules of the bus? Where is the location of Xizhimen Long Distance Bus Station? How far is the bus station from Beijing North Railway Station? Or there are better options to go there? Thank you.

you're welcome Eddy.
the route of bus No. 836 has already changed, and Tianqiao is its terminal now.

Eddy ( Indonesia ) :7/23/2013 4:08:12 AM

Thanks Kate for the information.
I just read in this website about Bus No. 836 at Xizhimen Long Distance Bus Station, (also Liuliqiao). I just hope to find the nearest bus station to Beijing North Railway Station, because I will come from Badaling.
But OK, I think Tianqiao is the right place to get the bus to Shidu.

Kate :7/21/2013 7:37:35 PM

bus No. 836 departs from Tianqiao stop, near the west gate of Temple of Heaven.
the bus runs hourly from 06:00 to 17:00.

Hi Lorelle,
there is no direct bus to Tianjin Port from Beijing.
you can take subway or taxi to the Beijing South Railway Station to catch a bullet train to Tanggu, and then take a taxi to the port.
the train ticket is CNY 65.5 for the second-class seat, and the taxi fare would be not more than CNY 100.

i think the best place is near the Forbidden City.
you can try the courtyard hotels like Tiananmen Best Year Courtyard Hotel and Elite Hutong Courtyard, or the star-hotels such as Days Inn Forbidden City Hotel, Grand Hotel, Citytel Inn and Raffles Beijing Hotel.

Which buses that will take me to Fengning County ? I want to go to Bashang Grassland. And...how much is the price for the bus and how long does it take to go to Bashang Grassland? Thanks

Frank :7/29/2012 7:44:38 PM

You may take a train from Beijing west railway station or a long-distance bus from Xizhiben or Yongdingmen bus station to Zhangjiakou city first, and then transfer to a mini-bus to Zhangbei County, and then take a taxi to Bashang Grassland. Personally, I advise you hire a car from a travel company in Beijing to save both time and strength.

why not taking the bullet train,which is fast and convenient.
the train departs from Beijing Railway station at 09:15, 13:21, 13:42, 13:51, 14:30, 17:47 and 18:32.
the ticket is CNY 142 for the second class and CNY 169 for the first class.
it takes only 3.5 hours.

if you prefer bus, you can go to the Bawangfen Bus Station. the bus departs hourly.
the ticket is CNY 134, and the travel time is 4 - 5 hours.
