How to get form Beijing airpot to hotelm on Wanfujing

by ohaiyo

Hi,

Is there hotel transfer service from the airport to hotels in the city? My flight arrives a little after 8:00 p.m. If there is such a service, where is it at the airport and how much is it?

If there is no such service, where at the airport would I be able to catch a legitimate taxi and the approximate cost?

My main concern is not to get into a fake taxi.

Check with your hotel to see if they offer a shuttle. If you're traveling light, the subway is good (and cheap). There are also several airport bus/shuttles that stop at several key places downtown.

Otherwise, it's easy to find an official taxi. Just follow the airport signs(in english) to the taxi area. They'll be lined up along the curb, and they have a standard two-tone color scheme (either green and gold, or gold and red) with the taxi sign on top of the car. If you want them to take you to a specific hotel, best to have the name and address printed out in Chinese, which you can probably find on their website. Depending on which area you are going to, the taxi ride (about an hour long) should cost about 100rmb.

Have a great trip!

Which hotel are you staying at? You should be able to get a taxi ride for around 100 RMB.

I always take a taxi.
Look, that they use the meter!!
Its always very cheap!!
But you have to pay the road toll extra,that means "Meter+Toll"-it could be a mistake,otherwise.

Hi,
If your luggage is not to big, taking subway will be an option. WIth 2 line changes you can stop at Wanfujing station. Its also comfortable train.
here is the website for subway map http://www.chinahighlights.com/beijing/map/map-of-beijing-subway.htm

As a non Chinese speaker, I found it difficult to get a clear conversation with the taxi driver. Even when I show him a map, still got painful conversation. And I got one experience that the taxi driver took me around around that cost me double. I knew it was double since I have regular trip from my friend appartment to the closest subway station.

but if you speak chinesse, thing will be much easier, I believe

Anyway, that was just a very minor problem in Beijing, other than that...I would like to return there someday. Very interesting place !!

have a nice trip in Beijing

"Very cheap" is subjective.
Having the hotel name and address in Chinese characters, as well as a map of the vicinity and also preferably a phone number of the place, would be of much more use than having directions in English and/or trying to pronounce where you're going.

Travel Tips for Beijing

I'm sure many people pick this...

by dr_in_asia

I'm sure many people pick this - but it is truly an spectacular sight to see. The Great Wall visit was a highlight of my tour. We went to Badaling, which was a more 'touristy' area of the wall, but very well preserved with a cable car ride up (you can walk if you like). I only wish we'd had more time there - I think if I was to do it again, I'd hire a private tour to see another part which is less crowded though.

Eating out

by clairegeordio

During the few days I was in Beijing, I did notice (at least in the area that I was staying in) that restaurants tended to not allow any more customers in after 8.30-9pm, so it is best to try to eat out earlier if possible.

Cheering Squads

by SLLiew

Unlike watching on television in your living room, when you watch at the stadium, you can feel the excitement and cheers of the supporters of each team which have fly all the way to be at Beijing to see their countrymen and countrywomen compete. Win or lose, they will cheer to the end.

The competitors often show their appreciation to the audience and their cheering squads at the end of the competition. Very often, you see family members in the cheering squads some holding placards example signed by their highschool to try their best.

So this add a personal story to each athlete who have given so much including their coach and their family members and friends over years to have a chance to compete at the Olympics.

Each country has their unique style of cheering. Some will sing together like football songs. The Chinese style is someone will shout "Zhongguo dui" (Chinese Team) and the crowd will followed with "Jia You" (Do your best). The Malaysia style is "Malaysia"... "Boleh" (Malaysia Can)

Shopping in Wangfujing

by blue_sky04 about Wangfujing Street

Wangfujing street is dedicated to shoppers. You can find modern shopping mall and department store as well as small independent stores a long the street. There you can find clothes, jewelry, souvenirs, food, and many others.

I visited some of the souvenir stores there and bought a few things. Remember to bargain when you go to the souvenir stores because the price they tell you often much higher than the normal price. I was able to bargain until the price became 25% of the initial price they told me.

Shopping

by Green_Frog about Wangfujing Street

The markets were a lot of fun here and we found this extremely talented young man who made doll replicas of yourself for only 180rmbs. Nikki had to have one - she'd seen these artist at Behai Park and they were selling them for 300rmbs so she had a doll made.

She had to pose for approximately an hour whilst this young man moulded, carved, sculpted this doll to resemble her - it was really amazing and the crowd we drew was incredible - at one stage we would've had over 100 people surrounding us!!! Frightening.
