About:Beijing Train Schedule

Our cruise ship Diamond Princess will arrive in Tianjin China 4am. We need to get to Beijing and catch the flight at 6pm. We want to take the bullet train from Tanggu railway station to Beijing. The first bullet train is scheduled for 8:29am and the next one to Beijing is 12:30pm. How early do we need to leave the ship to catch the first bullet train at 8:29am? If we should miss the first train, may we use the same ticket for the next train at 12:30pm? Or should we take a chance and get tickets only after we arrive at Tanggu railway station? How long is the taxi ride from Tainjin Port International Cruise to Tanggu railway station? Or is it better to take a taxi directly to Tianjin Railway Station? How long is the taxi ride from Tainjin Port International Cruise to Tainjin Railway Station for the bullet train? Is it true that one need to arrive the bulletin train station one hour earlier than the train schedule to leave? The train station has to check all security issues? Thanks so much.

Hi, you can not use the same ticket for next train if you could not catch the first train. Personally, time is enough for you to catch the train if you depart the port at around 06:30am. It is about 18km from the port to Tangu train station and costs around 40mins by taxi. Usually, passenger should reach the station at least 40mins before departure for the security check. The port is about 55kms to Tianjin Railway Station, which takes nearly 1hr and 40mins by taxi. Personally, you would better take train to Beijing at Tanggu Station as it is closer to the port.
