Bulletins for QNP09

•  Weather in late September in Beijing

It is still hot in Beijing in September, but it will be chilly when it rains. Sometimes the temperature changes drastically. You are kindly advised to check the weather before you trip.

•  How to get to the IHEP guesthouse and Changfeng Holiday Inn

The most convenient way to get to the IHEP guesthouse and Changfeng Holiday Inn from Beijing International Airport is by taxi. There are clear direction indicators at the airport pointing to the Taxi waiting points at all the terminals. Most international flights will arrive at Terminal 3 (T3) while some may arrive at Terminal 2 (T2). The Taxi waiting point at T3 is located at the ground floor and you should take the elevator to get there. At T2, the Taxi waiting point is just outside the Arrival building.

There is detailed information about the location of the IHEP guesthouse and Changfeng Holiday Inn at the conference webpage, http://tpcsf.ihep.ac.cn/QNP09/accommodation.htm

Please always take the taxis at the waiting points, and DO NOT follow those who invite passengers to take their taxis at the Arrival Gate. Those taxis are generally unauthorized ones. Sometimes, you may have to queue for a while at the Taxi waiting point, but generally it just takes a couple of minutes to get into a taxi.

The distance between the airport and the IHEP area is about 45 -50 km , and it takes about 50 minutes with ordinary traffic condition. At rush hours, it may take more than one and half hours. The cost is about 140-150 yuan including the toll fee (10 yuan). It may be a little bit more at rush hours.
