Arrival and Venues
1. By Taxi
Going from the airport to Tsinghua University is most conveniently done by taxi. The fare costs about 130 yuan and takes 45′ (to an hour, if there is a lot of traffic). Simply follow the taxi signs in the airport; they lead to the taxi line (do not accept offers from people inside the airport, as they are typically much more expensive; the taxi that you will get should have a registration plate starting with 京B). Taxi drivers rarely speak English; you can ask them to bring you to the hotel by handing them one of the following sentences:
If you need a receipt, ask for a fāpiào (发票).
- Please take me to Tsinghua University, Jinchun Yuan Hotel.
- Please take me to Ziguang Guoji Jiaoliu Zhongxin.
2. By Subway
