You can take bus from Tianjin West Bus Station to Beijing Bawangfen. It costs about CNY40 and the duration is around 2 hours. However, it is more recommended to take a bullet train from Tianjin and it takes only about 30 minutes.

There is no direct bus to the port. You can take a shuttle bus Tanggu Line to the terminal stop and then take a taxi. The bus fare is around CNY25 and the taxi fare is about CNY60.

There is a Dongjiang Tairong Hotel located at 22/24 floor, Dongjiang Financial and Trade Center B, between Asia Road and European Road, Binhai New Area.

Transfer Seoul -> Sanya
I arrive from Seoul and fly on to Sanya. Both flights with Air China. Will 1 hour 30 minutes be enough for the transfer? Do I have to re-check my baggage for the domestic flight?

Will you have a layover at Tianjin Binhai Airport? If yes, I am afraid that the time is not enough for you to make this transfer. Generally speaking, 2.5 to 3 hours are suitable. Besides, you need to re-check the luggage fore the domestic flight.
Answered by Mario from GERMANY | Apr. 02, 2019 03:05

Thank you, then I'd rather cancel my flight and re-book it with a longer transfer.

It is an international to domestic transfer, right? If so, the time is tight. If you purchase the tickets separately, generally speaking, you should leave 2.5 to 3 hours to make this connection. If you purchase the interline tickets, you can finish this transfer. Don't worry.
