Can you provide me with contact details?
Can I take a train from Beijing?
How long will it take?
It canot be reached by train. Anyway, here is a way to get there for your reference: take local subway line 15 and get off at Shunyi station. Then transfer to bus no. 989 or 850 to the terminal at Mapo. After that, there are shuttle buses to ur destination. But I am not clear about the duration.
Do you know if it is possible to rent or borrow a rowing boat or join other rowers in a crew?
Thanks in advance
For international airline, you should go to the airport two hours before the plane take off.
Mutianyu Great Wall is close to you, but it is about 65 kilometers from the airport area and it may take about an hour and 30 minutes to arrive there.
To be honest, there are few attractions in Shunyi area and there are only local famous golf clubs in that area. If you like, you can have a try. Usually for me, I just stay in the airport for a few hours to wait for the next plane. The condition in the airport is nice and I can also do shopping in the airport.
I would be in the same situation as Terry and I actually just wonder whether there is any shopping mall nearby the airport that i can go to in the morning before my 1PM flight.
I have seen for example Euro Plaza or i have also seen something like ShouShangBuXingjie.
Does anyone have any advices?
Thanks in advance,
