1. Three yuan (CNY3) surcharge will be added beyond 3km to balance the oil hike according to the policy of the local government.
2. The Beijing Airport Expressway is free of charge into the city, but retains the CNY 5 fare toward Beijing capital airport.
3. Pre-book a Taxi in advance with a Beijing taxi company so that your taxi driver can “meet & greet” you, your clients, friends or family at the Beijing Airport, train stations, your hotel, or at your office, home or any other place.

    Which is the most convenient way for my family of 3 person to travel from the Beijing airport(PEK) to my hotel in Wangfujing area. I will be arriving at the airport late at night at around 12 midnight. Are taxis still available at that time? How much does the taxi fare cost. How much must I give tip? Thank you.

    Yes, Beijing taxi will be available 24 hours in the airport, you can just follow the direction in the airport to go to the Taxi waiting area, you will see taxis queuing there waiting for guests.
    From airport to Wangfujing area, the taxi fee cost about 120 RMB or more. Tip is Not required in China, you can pay just the amount shown on the meter.
