First of all, right on the terminal building, I bought a train ticket for the next day.
The Aeroexpress train station is located under the building of air terminal.
But this time I decided to take a bus to the city..
On the photo is Terminal 3.
Aeroexpress trains to Beijing as cost 25 yuan in 2008, as still costs 25 yuan in 2014.
When I flew from Moscow in April 2014, our Aeroexpress trains to Sheremetyevo cost 340 roubles, and when I came back in May the price was already 400 roubles.
From the airport to various points of the city goes 11 bus routes. On the upper photo you can see a bus routes map on the wall to the left.
I was in need of route 7 going to the Beijing West Railway Station.
Buses departs every 30 minutes. The fare is 24 yuan.
Travel time is 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Ticket office is just across the road, and at first I didn't even noticed it!
The final stop of the bus is in front of the South entrance to the Beijing West Railway Station.
This was very good — my hotel is located not far from it.
