How to get a taxi to the city in the airport at midnight?
SLWANG5227 | Mar 12, 2017 07:38

As you arrived in Harbin Taiping Airport at midnight, you don't have much choice. You can take a Taxi at the picking up point, it is across the road from the airport exit. Drivers will either try and negotiate a price or tell you they will go by the meter, either way it's in their favor. I can tell you a reasonable price for a taxi at that hour will cost you between 150-180 RMB including toll fee of 20RMB. Drivers will agree a price and then try to charge you extra for the Toll!

If you go be meter, keep your eye on the meter as they have been known to change very quickly!

Make sure the taxi you board is a proper taxi in the queue and not through touts since it will probably pass 12 midnight by the time you board the taxi.

If you would not want to the hassle of getting into an argument with the Taxi driver in the middle of the night. I would suggest you book a Uber or DiDi Driver by advance which probably cost RMB 150 total.

From Harbin airport, leave baggage claim and walk straight and purposefully to the exit which will be almost directly ahead of you (it's a very small airport), avoid the taxi drivers, (100+ RMB to town) and head for the ticket office for the bus, if no-one is there, wait, they will come back!

If you wait a long time check outside, there's normally a bus waiting and they'll guide you to the ticket booth if you missed it.

It's only 20 RMB to the town centre.(AUG 2006)

The bus will pass the RAILWAY STATION after about 30-35 minutes,(cheaper Hotels from 120 pppn).

The final stop is approx. 10 minutes later at the CAAC Hotel, it's about half way down ZHONGSHAN LU, one of the main arterial routes through town.

Bus 103 1Y standard 2Y AirCon from Song Hua River (North) to Hong Qi Street (South East) via Station/Qulin Shopping Area/ Zhongshan Lu from roughly 0530-2230.
