We took the high speed train from the port in Xingan to Bejing. The Tanggu Railway Station station is a fifteen minute taxi ride away and when we got off the ship, there where plenty of people who spoke english to help coordinate the taxis ride.
The train is new, luxurious, fast and user friendly. Tickets are sold out of an ATM like Kiosk at the train station. You can choose the english option and use a credit card...too easy.
There is a digital speedometer in the cabin. Our top speed was 320kph (200mph). Needless to say, it's a quick trip. There is only one stop along the way in Tianjin and the train arrives at the Bejing South Station where you can hop on the subway to get to your hotel. There is a train to the Airport from Bejing as well.
