At that time, you can take the Airport Night Bus Yonghegong Line to Sidaokou East and transfer to Night Bus Line 3 to Erligou Dongkou. After that, walk east and then north about 250m to take Night Bus Line 14 to Chengfu Lukou South. Get off the bus and then you can see your destination.

The night shuttle bus operates till one hour later after domestic flights end and the stops include Deshengmen, Drum Tower, Yonghe Temple, Dongzhimen, Temple of Heaven, and Beijing Railway Station.
As for areas to stay, Drum Tower is close to the Shichahai Hutong area; around Yonghe Temple, there are also many hotels; living beside the Temple of Heaven, you can get up early to see locals doing morning exercise... It depends on your preference.

Could you please tell me the name Line of night shuttle bus?
What time for the last domestic fight in each day?
My international flight arrive at PKX on 11.15 pm on Oct 23. Should it be in time to take night bus?
Answered by Cindy | Jun. 20, 2023 02:56

1. It's just called Yonghe Temple Line and Wangjing Line.
2. It's hard to say because there are often flights arriving later than planned due to bad weather and traffic control. But you should be on time to catch the night bus. Yuo are not too late yet for that INTERNATIONAL airport.
