Beihai Transportation - Getting There


Beihai Fucheng Airport is a modern airport operating flights to more than a dozen cities, amongst which are Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an, and Guangzhou. It covers an area of 7 acres (3.5 hectares) with a runway of 3,500 yards (about 3,200 meters) and 65 yards (about 60 meters) wide. Now there is one terminal building in service. Airport shuttle buses are available here, which can take passengers to the downtown area within 40 minutes at a cost of CNY20 per person. In addition, taxis awaiting outside the Arrival Hall can be rented to tour the nearby attractions.


There is only one train station located at Beijing Road in the city center - Beihai Railway Station. It has a grand thirteen-storey building, four cargo loading and unloading lines and a large warehouse. It has strong cargo capacity but is relatively weak in passenger transportation. At present, both ordinary trains and bullet trains are scheduled here for passengers' convenience, and the destinations include Liuzhou, Nanning, Guangzhou, Guilin, Fangchenggang and Hangzhou.
Bus Routes: No. 1, 10, 16. 17, 20, 22, 102, 103, 106 and 107 can directly take you to the railway station.

The highways there extend to all directions. Two national highways that pass through Behai at present are the No.209 National Highway (Hubei Line) and No.325 National Highway (Guangnan Line). More busses are to converge in this city in time to come, as there are plans for the following routes from this city to Nanning, Guilin, Zhanjiang and Chongqing. Due to these efficient highways, driving becomes very convenient as the number of hours is not so long. For examples, it takes about 3 hours' drive to Nanning, 7 hours to Guilin and 1.5 hours to Zhanjiang.

I want to take the bus from Beihai to Macau. How long of a ride, and what is the cost in RMB ?

I am afraid that there is no direct bus to Macau. You may take a bus to Zhuhai from Nanzhu Bus Station. The bus departs at 10:30, and the fare is CNY 250. The trip takes about 8 hours. Upon arrival, cross the Gongbei Port to Macau, and take a city bus or free shuttle bus to downtown Macau. :)
