Beijing Subway Changping LineOpened in 2010, Beijing Subway Changping Line is an express rail transit route connecting Changping New Town and the downtown area. Covering a distance of about 32 kilometers (20 miles), the operating part from Xierqi to Changping Xishankou passes 12 stations, which includes the famous Ming Tombs scenic area. The metro line operates from 05:45 to 23:05 and it takes around 40 minutes for the whole journey.

In order to ease the transfer pressure between the west extension of subway line 13 and Xierqi Station, the Changping Line shall extend further south to National Library Station in the near future. It will also bring great convenience for passengers who want to transfer to line 4, line 9, line 10, line 12 and line 15.

Take a taxi from Changping Xishankou to Badaling
Is metered taxi available from Xishankou station (which is closest subway station to Badaling) for hire to Badaling? How much is the approximate fare?

Wondering if this is a good idea to take subway from airport to the closest subway station to Badaling and hire a taxi to Badaling? I do speak Chinese and plan to visit Badaling on this Saturday during our 13 hours layover.
Please advise.

It costs roughly around CNY90 by taxi.
In my opinion, the best way for you is to hire a car or taxi from the airport. I was told this agency provides the pick-up & see-off service and you may connect them through

Bus no. 879 connects the two spots and they happen to be the terminals. It leads to Dingling of the Ming Tombs. The whole trip takes 2h or a little longer by the way.

Info on Ming tombs new station
I knew that recently has been inaugurated the new Ming Tombs subway station on Changping Line.

I would like to know if the station is located near the entrance of the Ming tombs and Sacred Way, the station is far from the site? It is within walking distance? or is there a shuttle bus?

Thanks for your attention,
Have a nice day!
Massimo, Italy.

The station is about 2 miles (3 km) from the entrance of the Ming Tombs. There is no shuttle bus yet. You can walk there. If by taxi, the fare will be CNY14. If by private car or battery car, it will cost about CNY10.

The Xiangshan Temple and Biyun Temple are in Fragrant Hill Park and the closest subway station is Bagou (巴沟) Station. You can get out of the station from Exit A and then take a taxi to reach the park.
Get out of the station from Bagou, you need to take a taxi to reah the park and the taxi fare is around 35RMB.
To reach Badaling, it is suggested to take bus from Deshengmen Bus Station, which is close to Jishuitan Bus Station of subway line 2.
