How much would it cost to get from PEK airport to Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing via taxi?
What about metro? Also, is it safer to pay cash (CYN) or use Credit Card?
Answers (1)
Answered by Liela from USA | Mar. 06, 2018 19:08

It costs CNY90-100 by taxi.
Instead of metro (at least two transfers), you are suggested to take shuttle bus line 13 to Wangfujing Street and then walk north for 2mins to your hotel. It costs CNY25.

I don't think credit card can be used, you'd better prepare some cash.

Well, you can take a ferry at 15:20 to Lianhuanshan Port, Guangzhou. It takes about 100 minutes and 300HKD.
After that, take a taxi to Haibang Subway Station. Then, take subway line 4 and transfer to line 8 at Wanshengwei. Do another transfer to line 2 at Changgang, and get off at Yuexiu Park. Leave from Exit D1/D2, you will see the hotel.
Answered by P K Chan from MALAYSIA | Nov. 21, 2017 21:43

Thanks for the reply and the recommendation. However, I thought that was a complicated way by ferry + taxi + 3 times MRT transfer before arriving at destination. I was cheated twice when travelling by taxi in Guangzhou and I don't think I would take taxi anymore if I could help it.

I understand there is a couch/bus service with direct connection from Hong Kong airport to Guangzhou city ? I also gather that there is one type without having to change to another at the immigration ?

Look forward to your further reply.
Answered by Adam | Nov. 22, 2017 00:01

Yes, there is a direct bus to your hotel, and it takes about 3h 30 minutes, 250HKD. Follow the signs, you can find the bus station easily. Also, you can turn to the staff for help! Have a nice trip!

No visa is needed for your case, because you are eligible for 144h visa-free transit. Do fill in the "Embarkation/Disembarkation Card" before landing, and apply for a stay permit at the immigration counter when getting to Shanghai.
