Hi Olivia,
i think the best mode is to walk to the Liufang subway station to take suwbay line 13 for 1 station to Dongzhimen Station, exit from Exit C and walk to Dongzhimen Bus stop to take bus No. 909 for 2 stops and get off at Xingfu Sancun stop. head east on Dong Zhi Men Wai Da jie toward Sanlitun Road for about 250 meters and turn right to Sanlitun road and walk for another 200 meters.
or they can walk to Liufang Bus stop to take bus No. 101 to Xing Fu San Cun stop. walk northward along the Xindong Road for 100 meters, turn right to Dong Zhi Men Wai Da Jie and walk along the street for 420 meters, and turn right to Sanlitun road and walk for about 200 meters, they will get to the school.

why not store your suitcases in the airport? there are storage lockers in the airport.
or you can try to find a hotel near the Dongzhimen station, which is also available for luggage storage.

Hi Miran,
you can take the Subway airport Express Line to Dongzhimen station, then subway line 2 to Jianguomen station, and line 1 to Tiananmen East, exit from Exit D and transfer to bus No. 2 and get off at Donghua Gate stop. the hotel is just in front of the bus stop. it costs CNY 25 + 2 + 1 = 28
if by taxi, it costs more than CNY 80 for you two.

how much is the taxi fare from Beijing south railway station to Chaoyang District nearby Sofitel hotel? may i also know what if i take bus or train alternatively.

Hi there,

We are planning to go to Chengde next saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd and then coming back the following day. As bus tickets normally are purchased before getting on, do you think we will face problems because of the National holidays? is it possible to buy them in advance somehow? besides, fast buses are departing from Dongzhimen station? if not, how do buses take from dongzhimen to chengde?
Thanks in advance! best regards to the team!

hi Antonio,
there may be a lot of people, but i think it will be better if you get up early and go to the bus station to take the early bus.
there are buses from Dongzhimen bus Station.

We were told that the port of Tianjin will be closed for the national holiday 2011. Is this true?

A group of us are traveling to Beijing this week and i am looking for the best and cheapest way to get to our hotel, Mercure Wanshang Beijing. Please help.

Jack :9/20/2011 6:07:19 PM

Where will you leave for Mercure Wanshang Beijing? From capital airport? No direct subway or bus from the airport to the hotel, so I advise you take a taxi that costs around CNY120 for a single way. You may also book a bus from a local travel agency, considering you are a group.
