Between 23:00 and 05:00 the next day, the price of each extra kilometer rises by 20%, i.e. CNY2.4. If a taxi runs farther than 8 kilometers (5miles), extra 50% is charged for empty return.

1. It is possible to stay overnight but only seats are available.
2. If you transit in China for less than 24 hours, you are eligible for the 24-hour visa-free transit.
3. The pay lounge is not available at night and you may find a hotel out of the airport.
