Comments and Questions

I have an 8 hour layover in Beijing and would like to see the great wall for a couple hours. I arrive in PEK at 0500 and figure it will take an hour to get out of the airport. Would it be hard to find a taxi at 0630 to take me to the great wall? I hear that some parts don''t open until later in the morning. How hard will it be to get a taxi for return to the airport so that i can be there by 1100? A private tour is expensive for one person and i think it will be easier to pay for a taxi to and from.Any suggestions?

It is not very hard to get a taxi that time, but a round trip to Great Wall (Mutianyu Section can be proper) may cost a lot, CNY800 or so. If you worry it is hard to grab a taxi, book one by calling 96103 in advance.

Sometimes, the driver may charge more. A half day private tour for Great Wall doesn't charge a lot. For your convenience, joing a tour can be a better choice. If you are interested, Beingtrip is suggested. You may contact by travel@travelchinaguide.com!

You may take shuttle bus Line 2 Night Line and get off at Yabao Road (CNY30, 50min). Then take a taxi to your hotel with the fare of around CNY15. The shuttle bus won't end until the arrival of the last flight, so you can surely catch it.

If taking a taxi for a direct travel, it may cost CNY100-120.

Jane, you can take airport shuttle bus line 13 to Wangfujing Street (family Imperial-Court Hotel) and the bus fare is CNY24. After alighting, take a walk southwards and turn west onto Dong'anmen Street. Head forward for 450 yards and you are at the eastern end of Donghuamen Street.
If you take a cab to Donghuamen Street, the cab fare is CNY100 or so.

We are reaching Beijing International Airport at 11:30PM, & Going to Dong'anmen station (Wancheng Huafu International hotel) Is ther any night Line bus available at this time.

Vipul, you can take shuttle bus line 3 to BJ International Hotel, then take a taxi to the hotel with a fare of around CNY15.
But you need to hurry, for the last bus leaves the airport at 24:00

Take metro line 7 from Happy Valley Station to West Railway Station. The trip takes about 40 minutes, and the fare is CNY 5. If by taxi, the fare may be around CNY 70 to 80. ;)

Take airport shuttle bus line 13 from PEK to Jinyu Hutong Station. Then, walk east for about 300 yards to Xin Dong An Market Station. Take sightseeing bus line 2 to the square. Or, you may take a taxi to your hotel from Jinyu Hutong for about CNY 15. :)

Yes! You can take shuttle bus line 13 from PEK to Wangfujing Street (Sunworld Dynasty Hotel) for CNY 24. Then, take a taxi to the hotel for CNY13.

Or, you may take Airport Express line to Dongzhimen Station. Next, transfer to metro line 2 to Jianguomen Station. Then, change to metro line 1 to Tiananmen East Station, Exit B. Walk east for about 450 yards, and turn left. Then, walk north for about 200 yards to the hotel.

Transportation from Terminal 3 to Badaling Hotspring Resort. What are the options? Also from Badaling to City Inn Hotel? Thanks.

To Badaling Spring Resort: take airport shuttle bus line 4 to Madianqiao stop. Walk to Madianqiao South bus stop to transfer to bus no. 919 to Guishui North Street. Upon getting there, the resort is around 650m away.

About the City Inn Hotel, do you refer to the Happy Valley branch? Will you go to the hotel from the Spring Resort? If so, you can still take bus no. 919 back to Madianqiao South. Then the hotel is around 20km away. Take a taxi to reach exactly at a cost of CNY60 or around.

Take subway line 9 at the West Station to Baishiqiao South. There transfer to line 6 and get off at Dongsi. Leave from exit 4 and you can walk there in 5min.

My family will arrive at Beijing Intl Airport terminal 2 at 12:10 am. We are 5, thus we exceed the maximum in a taxi. Our hotel is Inner Mongolia Grand Hotel. What can you advise us since we dont want separate taxis.

I have two suggestions for you:1. take shuttle bus line 2 (Night Line) and get off at International Hotel at the cost of CNY24 per person. Then take two taxis (you have no other choices) to your hotel in around 5min and the fare is CNY13 per cab. 2. I know a travel agency arrange great airport pick-up service - Travel China Guide. If you are interested, their contact is booking@travelchinaguide.com

Are you sure about the location of IKEA? I just checked that IKEA only has two branches in the city: one is Siyuanqiao branch and the other is Xihongmen branch. Neither of them are near Wangfujing. Would you recheck your destination?

Hope this is not too late. If you refer to the cab fare from PEK to your hotel, it costs CNY90 or a little higher.

I'm ariving in Beijing Capital airport this end Jan around 2am. Our lodgings will be near to Wanda Plaza, Chaoyang District. How much will it cost for taxi at that hour. There are 4 of us and each has own luggage. Also, will there be any train from the airport at that hour? We dont want to spent the time in the airport. Thanks a lot for the help!

The cab fare from the airport to your destination shall be CNY90 or a little more.

Both train and bus would have been out of service at that time, so taxi would be your only choice.

Day 2: Badaling Great Wall - Ming Tombs
