Hi, why don't you take a taxi? It is the most convenient way and you do not bother to book tickets in advance.

I just checked with the tourist bus company and was told that the bus passing by Tangdao Bay had been cancelled. Also, the operating time for these three bus lines are different, so I am afraid that it is impossible to change en route.

You are advised to take bus no. 18 at the north station and get off at Baoguan Xueyuan (Institute of Customs Declaration). Then ur hotel is 0.6mi away. You can walk there in 10-15min.

If possible, you can make use of this day to explore some main attractions in the city. I would recommend you visit the Zhan Bridge, Badaguan Scenic Area, Bathing Beach, Xiaoyushan Park where you can overlook the city from the top, and then get to Wusi Square. If you are interested, you may also consider a day trip to Mt. Laoshan, which is another famous place in QD.
