Beijing Airport Transfers & Ground Transport

Walking, Bicycling & Rickshaw Rides
The best way to see Beijing is by walking or renting a bicycle. Rickshaw rides are a fun alternative for shorter distances.

Taxis, Buses
Taxis and buses are another alternative for getting around the city and visiting nearby attractions. We were encouraged NOT to drive in China.

Subway Hours 5am-10:30pm daily.

Beijing-Lhasa Train
The train departs Beijing every night at 9:30pm and arrives in Lhasa just under 48 hours later. The return trip departs Lhasa daily at 8am.

Note: Due to the high elevation, be sure to drink lots of water. Save money and buy bottled water in advance or at the Beijing train station vs on board the train. And don't forget to bring your own toilet paper. Check with your doctor prior to your trip regarding pertinent medications.
