You can take direct bus from Penglai Coach station to the airport. It departs from 5:10 to 18:30 with interval of 30-60 minutes and CNY25.

If you take a taxi directly, the cab fare is CNY100 to CNY120 in general.

My daughter will be flying into Yantai airport at night in January
Worried for her to be safe and get a ride and hotel speaking no Chinese. Also about her phone not working there to have any communication with her. The hotel airport is suppose to be close but walking 10 minute at night on the road sounds bad to me. Just need advise for her to follow when she arrives there.

She will find clear English guide in the airport. Or she can show the hotel name to staff to decide the right direction to the hotel. Don't worry, you can trust Chinese security situation.
