From the airport
Please ensure that your travel plans and itinerary are included in the meeting registration online form. This will enable us to arrange pick up at the airport. We regret we cannot arrange pick-up for travel details submitted after 23 March 2009.
If for any reason participants are not met upon arrival, here are two transportation options.
- Taxi (one-way) costs approximately CNY 80 (including CNY10 tollgate fee). Most drivers do not speak English. You will want to have the address of your destination written in Chinese characters for them to see.
- Airport Express from the airport to Sanyuanqiao station. Change here to Subway Line 10 going south to Liangmaqiao station. The hotel complex is located at the southwest Exit C. This is a convenient option for travellers without heavy luggage. Cost is CNY 25 for airport express, CNY 2 for subway.
The overall security situation in Beijing is good. Common sense applies to get around safely.
Be careful while crossing the street. Pedestrians do not have right of way.
When in areas that are well-frequented by tourists, follow tourist common sense: do not flash your money, keep you bags closed and in front of you. In tourist markets, be prepared to bargain if you do not want to be overcharged. Be cautious of purchasing fake goods.
All official Beijing taxis have license plates beginning with the letter “B”. Taxis have meters with a starting fee (CNY 10 ) and an additional CNY 2 per kilometer after the first three kilometers. If the driver ‘forgets’ to switch the meter on, remind him/her politely by saying ‘qing da biao’ (’run the meter, please’). After 11 p.m., the starting fee is CNY 11.
The subway is an excellent way to quickly get around the city and you can easily figure it out through the station maps and the English signs. Purchase tickets (CNY 2) at the window. There is a subway station outside the Kempinski Hotel.
The Airport is located in the northeast, 26 kilometers from the city centre. 20 minutes drive by car in normal traffic.
