I will be arriving Beijing International Airport around 7am tomorrow, and will stay at Renaissance Hotel Beijing Chaoyang.

What would be the best way to go to the hotel, from the airport?
1. Taxi from arrival hall to hotel (how much does this cost)
2. Airport subway: from airport, which line should i take and which line should i change to get nearest to the hotel. I guess I still have to take a taxi from that nearest subway to hotel?

Please help.

1. around CNY 60 by taxi
2. there's only one subway line from the airport. you can take the subway line and get off at the Sanyuanqiao station. then you can take a taxi to your hotel. the taxi fare is around CNY 10.

I'm afraid it costs too much to take a taxi from Beijing capital airport to Nankai District of Tianjin directly. I advise you take airport shuttle from Beijing Capital Airport to Tianjin airport first. The ticket fare is CNY80. Then take a taxi from Tianjin airport to Nankai district, costing about CNY60.

thank you ken for you re tips they are very usefull thank again chris

not sure about the hotel you said. from the airpot to Tiananmen squre,you can take the subway airport line to Dongzhimen station and change to subway line 2 to Jianguomen station, then change to subway line 1 to tiananmen east or Tiananmen west staion.
from beijing to Tianjin,you can take the bullet train from Beijing South Railway station to Tanggu in Tianjin and take a taxi to the port.


a) How much is the taxi fare from tianjin airport to beijing South Subway Station?

b) How to go to Beijing South Subway station from Tianjin Airport?

Take a taxi from the port to Tianjin railway station to take a train to Beijing south raiwlay station, and then take bus no. 20 or take a taxi to Grand Hyatt Beijing. It costs at most CNY150.

there is airport express bus service. You can tell to the ticket vendor your destination. Sh/e will tell you the nearest station you gonna get off. The fair is about RMB 16. Much cheaper than the subway.
