    • Central station in Beijing

      China May 21, 2015 at 1:13 PM

      Hi, We are arriving from Ulan Bhator at Beijing central station and need to get to Beijing airport for an onward flight to Japan. I have done research into transfers but all the details are from a variety of stations, none of which are referred to as the central station. Can any one help with the name of the station? Also any tips of a quick transfer would be great as we have just under 3 hours to get from the station to the airport (which l understand is about 30 km so should be doable - if l have the right station!)

      Many thanks

      this is part of the question i posted on another thread, was wondering if anyone could help me out here?

      I was originally intending to stop by Qingdao or Qufu in Shandong enroute to Beijing, as it only takes 4 hours to get from Qingdao to Beijing, but was unable to find a way to get from Zhangjiajie to Qingdao? (by bus/train?), would you happen to also know anything about it?

      I was looking to get to Qingdao/Qufu from Zhangjiajie- does anyone know if i can do it by bus/train? I'd be heading to Bejing after that, if it takes alot of time, are there other suggestions to head to where i can spend 2 days at while travelling from ZJJ to Beijing?

      Thanks everyone!

      1)Is it a long distance from the bus station to the airport?
      2)which bus number do i take from the bus station to the airport? I don't wanna go by cab because cab-drivers all over the world like exploiting foreigners.
      3)Hope there is just one bus station and airport in Qingdao.
