And also, how long does it take on the subway to get into Beijing city?
The rental of 1500 was the price almost six years ago. I have been living in Daxing district for several years. As far as I know, now the general price is about 2500-3500 RMB for two bedrooms and living room. The house is decorated a little bit. If you want to live in a small one, it will be a little cheaper. But as you know, the rental price in Beijing is so high.
From main area of Daxing to Beijing, it will cost you about 35-40 minutes by subway.
