Sometimes called the Port of Beijing, the port of Tianjin is the third biggest in the world based on its cargo volume. More than 200,000 passengers from luxury cruise liners arrive in the port each year, with cruise liners like the Sapphire Princess, Celebrity Millennium and Ovation of the Seas
Beijing is around 175 kilometers, or about 2.5 hours drive, northwest of the Tianjing Cruise Port. There is a bullet train between Tianjin and Beijing, and there are also taxis for hire in the area. A taxi trip all the way to Beijing will cost more than 500 yuan. You could also take a taxi to Beijing South Railway Station, then catch the bullet train to Tianjin. This will cost several hundred yuan. We offer the most affordable alternative with our air-conditioned coach for your Tianjin cruise port to Beijing transfer, because you can share the cost with other travelers. If you are not part of a large group, get in contact with us so we can fit you into another group of travelers.
