Hi! I will arrive at Beijing Capital Airport at 9 a.m. How long it takes from there to Nanyuan Airport by taxi and wat should I expect to pay? My flight depart at 11 a.m., is it enough if I arrive just one hour prior? Many thanks!

Dear Viola,

This is Christy from China Highlights Travel.

It will take about 40 minutes and 120-150yuan. Time is so limited if you just leave one hour to transfer.   

Good luck.

Hi Hendra, I suggest that you take the taxi. But for 5 adults and 3 children with luggage, you may need 3 taxis. We also have the private transfer service with English speaking tour guide and van, it is CNY730(USD120)for your group. Do you have interest? Whitney Liao replied on 2013-06-19
