hi Julia,
subway is more convenient.
you can take the Subway airport line to Dongzhimen station, then subway line 2 to Jianguomen station, then line 1 ot Wangfujing station. Exit from Exit C, you can find the hotel.

On the 2nd of November, I arrive at the Beijing Airport.To get to my hostel across from Forbidden City, should I subway from airport?

Good day all!!! I just have a little problem... let me explain: I was thinking about to join the Diamond on 20th April for 2 cruises (until 21st of May). Apparently even with a double visa for China I'll not be covered for the whole periods. So I was planning to posticipate my vacation and join the ship on 6th May, in Tianjin... Does anyone know if with the double visa for China I'll will be covered for both cruises, and if not, can suggest me with is the best way to reach the Ship for Tianjin Airport?! please feel free to contact me on my mail address pattyorru@tiscali.it

THANKS TO ALL (and sorry for the English)

hi Patrizia,
according to the regulation, you need to priovide the ticket for both ways.
where are you now? are you in Italy, do you have the ticket from Itlay to Singapore? have you got the cruise ticket from Singapore to China?
if you've got the above two tickets, you can try to go to the Chhinese Embassy to apply the China Visa.
or if you are still not sure, i suggest you enquire a professional visa agency.
good luck!

Patrizia ( Italy ) :3/29/2011 3:03:00 PM

Hi Helen! I'll join the Diamond on 20th of April in Singapore. As per schedule I should enter in China 2 times (so I need a double Visa). Then in May I'll start my second cruise, from China to Alaska (until 21 of May). Now I'm experiencing a few problems getting the Visa for China, cause I don't have the tickets both ways from China, since I'll join the Diamond in Singapore and I'll leave it in Canada... Do you know what I can do to get the Visa???

Helen :3/29/2011 12:08:00 AM

are you going to enter China for two times during your trip? Hong long is the duration for each entry of your Chinese Visa?
you will take the cruise to China on 6th May for the first time, what about the second time? when?

I will travel to Beijing in two weeks with a group of students. We are staying at the New Dragon hostel. Is it true that we can best take Airport shuttle route 3 and get out at the Chaoyangmen stop? Have you any indication about how long the trip will take? Thanks

Sally :3/15/2011 11:07:00 PM

if you get off at Chaoyangmen station, you still have a long way to walk. i suggest you take the airport shuttle bus line 3 and get off at Dongdaqiao, and change a bus No. 110 to Dengshidongkou, then you need to walk for only 400 meters.
the trip takes approximately 2 hours

I would like to make a day trip from Beijing to Chengde by train or coach to cover the famous temple and summer palace. Is this possible ? Pls give train and coach timetable and departure and arival locations of these stations. Also the fares and admission fees of the said sights. Are these sights far off from the arrival stations ? Tks.

you can go to Sihui Long-distance Bus Station. some of the bus use the new expressway, so you need to make it clear before you buy the ticket.
when getting back, you just need to go the long-distance bus station which you arrive, the Chengde Long-distance Bus station. the bus from Chengde to Beijing departs every 20 minutes from 06:00 to 18:00.

Loraine Chin ( Malaysia ) :12/8/2010 1:44:00 AM

I believe the temple is the Little Potola. Can we take the coach from Sihui Long distance bus station ?(Does this coach use the latest Expressway recently opened which some say takes only 2.5hrs to reach Chengde) Also need the latest bus schedule from Chengde to Beijing and where to depart from Chengde. Tks

Heidi :12/5/2010 10:56:00 PM

it is a bit rush to cover the summer resort and the temple in one day. i suggest you make it two-day.
it takes about 3 hours from Beijing to chengde by bus, and more than 5 hours by train. so buses are faster.
you can go to the Liuliqiao Long-distance Bus Station in Beijing and take the bus to Chengde. the bus departs every 20 minutes from 06;00 to 18:00.
when you arrive at the Chengde Long-distance bus Station,you can take bus No. 2 and get off at the Shi Zheng Fu (市政府) stop and walk to the summer resort.
which temple do you want to go??

Is there a coach from tianjin international airport to beijing tianamen square ? How much ? can a return fare be purchased? Pls provide time schedule.

there's no direct bus from the airport to Tianjin Port, you can take the airport shuttle bus to Tanggu Bus Terminal first (about 3 hours), and then take taxi to the port ( about 30 minutes).

You can either take a taxi directly from the airport or take the airport express to Dongzhimen and then take a taxi.

Marriott City Wall Hotel is very near to the Jianguomen Subway Station, so you may just take Metro Line 1 (airport line) to Jianguomen Station from the airport directly.
