It takes around 1 hour with CNY80 by taxi. You need to arrange your time in case you can't catch the flight. Remember to go back to the airport at least 2 hours in advance.

1. Well, I am not sure. They won't have performance in winter. It will continue the performance in Spring. You are suggested to pay attention to the news before going there.
2. You need to consult the hotel staff. I am not sure. Generally speaking, they can find ways to book the tickets.
