From Tianjin Xinjiang Port, you can take Bus No.102 to Tanggu Railway Station. Then you can catch the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Train to Beijing. The journey takes half an hour and prices for the first class and second class seats are CNY 69 and CNY 58.

Thanks for your inquiry.

As we know the cheapest way from Beijing to Erlian is by train. The hard sleeper ticket (Beijing-Erlian) of K3 train is priced at CNY 126(middle berth) while the long-distance bus ticket is priced at least CNY 150.

Should you still want to go there by bus, you can go to Beijiao Long-distance Bus Station which has lower price. From the airport, you can take Airport Bus Line 5 (CNY 16) to Yayuncun (or Anhuiqiao) where you can take a taxi (CNY 10) to Beijiao Station.

On 29th July 2009 I have a party of 3 who will require transfers from Tianjin Port to Grand Mercure Xidan Beijing Hotel. Can you tell me what the transfer options are and the likely costs please?

The fastest and the most economical way of transfer is: first, take a taxi (abt. CNY 10) from Tianjin Port to Tianjin Tanggu Railway Station where you can catch Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Train (around CNY 60);
after arriving at Beijing South Railway Station, you can take Bus No. 652 (CNY 2.5) from the South Square to Liujiayao; take Metro Line 5 to Dongdan then transfer to Metro Line 1 to Xidan (CNY 2).

We are travelling to China on a cruise ship next March and would like to know the different options for travelling to Beijing from the port. How much would it be for a taxi, or is there a train we can catch.
Also will we require a Visa to visit China, we shall be staying for 3 nights at the end of our cruise.

Many Thanks

The route from Tianjin Xingang Port to Beijing here we suggest is: firstly take the bus No. 102 from the port to Tianjin Tanggu Railway Station (or you may take a taxi there) where you can catch the Tianjin-Beijing Bullet Train to Beijing.

Yes. You will be required a China tourist visa which you can apply to Chinese Embassy to United Kingdom.

Hi, I will be arriving at Tianjin Bin Hai airport. Is there any direct bus from the airport to Hui Bin Yuan hotel, near Water Park? Which bus number? If transfer is required, please advise the bus number & transfer bus stop. Thank you.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Hu Bin Yuan Hotel is about 25 kilometers from Tianjin Binhai International Airport. Here we suggest a convenient and economical route: take the Airport Line 5 to the terminus where you take a taxi (about 15 RMB) to the hotel.

How long will the taxi journey take from Tianjin train station to the airport?

I'm planning to take the bullet train from beijing to arrive in tianjin at 07:10 to get a flight from the airport at 08:20 and need to know if this is enough time.

As we know, the taxi journey from Tianjin Railway Station to Tianjin Airport usually takes about one hour.

Here we suggest you get out of the station from the North Square Exit. There you can take the Airport Bus (06:00-19:30) which will get the airport within 20 minutes.

Take the Airport Bus to Fangzhuang, where you can take a taxi (around CNY 15) to Muxiyuan Long-distance Bus Station. Or you can take the Bus No. 434 and 741 to Muxiyuan West Bridge and then wall to the bus station.

It will probably cost around 40 RMB for you to take a taxi from Tianjin Airport to Tianjin Railway Station. If you choose bus, you can take the Airport Bus Line 5 to Tianshan Road, then take the No. 836 bus.

Thanks for your trust in beijingtrip.com!

Hello, Kelly
It is not far from Tianjin Aiport to railway station. It takes only one four by taxi. You can just buy ticket when you arrive at the station.

Yes, you can take the Airport Bus Line 4 and transfer to No. 836 bus at Tianshan Road Stop. Then you will get B Platform of Tianjin Railway Station. Should you take the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Train from Tianjin to Beijing, here are the train numbers you may choose from C2271,C2273,C2275,C2277 and C2279.

BeijingTrip.com :4/22/2009 11:00:00 PM

The fastest way should be taking the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Train. Since you are a group of 50, hiring a private bus will be the most convenient and most economical way.

Should be by train, coach is not comfortable. I tried....

Since your time is limited, our suggestion is that you pay a visit to Tianjin Ancient Cultural Street. The recommended time for visit is one hour. No. 4 bus runs from airport to the street and No. 624 goes from the street to Tianjin Railway Station.

hi, hairepotter
You may not worry about the language matter. You'd better choose the young people for help, since most of them can speak English.
