yes, you can check at http://www.beijingtrip.com/china-train/

We will arrive at Beijing airport.
(1) How do we get from the airport to Beijing South Railway Station
(2) Do I need to prepurchase a ticket to Tanggu? Do I have to book on a particular train or can I take the first to go after my arrival?
(3) How do I go from the Tanggu Station to the Tianjin cruise terminal. Will there be taxi's large enough for 4 pax with luggage?

1. please take airprot shuttle bus line 10 whose terminus is Beijing south railway station.
2. I advise you book the trian tickets in advance to smooth your trip.
3. yeah, taxi should be convenient for you if you take luggage. One taxi can carry 4 passengers. The luggage can be put in the trunk. Please don't worry.

Hi. I want to leave my suitcase in Beijing for 3 weeks. Is this okay? Many thanks, Rosanna

Helen :7/13/2012 6:58:58 PM

leave your suitcase in the railway station?
it is usually charged by hours. the charges in Beijing West Railway station is CNY 40 for the first day and additional CNY 15 every 12 hours exceeding that, so the total charge for 3 weeks would be CNY 40 + CNY 15 * 40 = CNY 640

Is the second class of train equals to the soft seat?
If I don't have internet,do you have a local phone number in Beijing ,if I don't receive the ticket?
Can you order the CRH ticket from Beijing to Shanghai ?

Kina :7/7/2012 7:17:46 PM

Second class seat is poorer than a soft seat. I think each booking center should have their phone numbers besides the email address. Yes, the CRH ticket is available.

We will be arriving in Tianjin via cruise ship for one weeks' stay in Beijing.The ship calls into Hong Kong and Shanghai.Can we buy our train tickets in Shanghai two days before arriving in Tianjin and who best to get to the station from the port.

buy the ticket from Tianjin to Beijing in shanghai?
no, you don't need to do that. you can get the ticket when arriv the railway station.
take a taxi to the Tanggu Railway station, and take the train to Beijing.

I will be staying at the Marriott hotel on Jian Guo Rd in Beijing and will be going to Tianjin cruise port in Xingang.
What is the best way to go?
Thank you

take it easy Louise, there are many taxies outside the Tanggu Railway station, and it is easy to get one.

Louise Singer ( Canada ) :6/4/2012 6:14:17 PM

Thank you Lisa for your info. but I hear it is hard to find a taxi at the Tanggu stn to the cruise port, Is that true? Louise

Lisa :5/28/2012 7:09:50 PM

Hi Louise,
the best way i think is to take a taxi from your hotel to Beijing South Railway station (15 minutes, CNY 30), and take a bullet train to Tanggu station. search the train schedule at:
and then take a taxi to the cruise port (40 minutes, CNY 70)

you can take the direct train from Beijing to Harbin. train No. Z1 or Z15 departing at night and arrives in the morning can save you much time and the money for hotel :)
