Take airport shuttle bus Binjiang Line and get off at Jiangling Road Station. Then take metro line 1 to Ding'an Road Station, Exit B. Take public bus no.124 to Qingbomen Bus Stop. Afterwards, walk south around 250 meters to find the hotel.

1. The airport shuttle bus Wulinmen Line operates from 07:30 to the last flight arrival. The ticket fare is CNY20/person.
2. Take airport shuttle bus Wulinmen Line and get off at Wulinmen CAAC Ticket Office first. Then walk south around 1.5km to find the scenic area.
3. Yes, the public buses and trains will still work during Chinese New Year. Don't worry.
4. You can take shuttle bus line 3 and get to Zhongyang Street directly. As I know, the bus will operate until the last flight arrival.
5. The online booking page only has Chinese version. Thus you can purchase the tickets when you arriving there. Generally speaking, there will have enough tickets.
