Beijing Capital International Airport is located in the northeast of the city, about 30 km away from the conference site. It is very convenient to access the city from the Airport by taxi or public transportation. See guides (http://en.bcia.com.cn) for international arrival and departure passengers. There are many ways for locals and overseas visitors to get around the city, but it is recommended to take the following options:
Taking a taxi is a convenient choice. Fees are charged according to the on-car-meter. Fares should be paid in RMB cash. It costs around RMB100 to get to Tsinghua University (the main venue) or the contract hotels we list above from the airport. Most taxi drivers cannot speak or understand English, so we prepare the address of the contract hotels in Chinese for you to show to drivers. They are clear enough for most Beijing taxi drivers.
Tips: Please remember only to take legal taxi with recognized logos/tags/paints in Beijing.
