If time permits, the best way is to take the airport shuttle bus Line 1. After arriving at the station, walk for about 570m to the bus station, which is at opposite of the station, the bus journey takes about 2 hours at a price of CNY25 per person. If your time is tight, then take a taxi there, the taxi ride takes about 1 hour and it costs about CNY130 per ride. Hope this is helpful.
