It is about 16km from the Tianjin cruise port to Tanggu train station, the nearest train station near Xingang, about half an hour's drive. From Tanggu to Beijing
by train, it takes only 1 hour. But the way from the cruise port to Tanggu train station is awkward.
This cruise port is a new one, Tianjin International Cruise Home Port
, far-off from the town down. If you haven't booked a car or taxi in advance, it's very hard to find taxi nearby the cruise terminal, let alone shuttle bus. If you have many luggage, it would be very not convenient, even board the train. So, it's better to arrange the transfer service in advance no matter from the ship or the local travel agent.
