“It is a long way from Tianjin”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

The Cruise Port - also called Xingang - is at the end of a large man-made port area that is still under construction. It is a 20 minute or more drive from the port to the city of Tanggu from which a high speed train connects Tanggu with Tianjin and Beijing. There is also a metro train that goes from Tanggu to Tianjin. Because transportation from the port is very limited, taxis ask 200 or more yuan for the trip to Tanggu. If your ship has arranged for a bus, it is a far better arrangement to use the bus. A return from Tanggu is easier; just be sure to use a blue taxi and have the driver engage the meter. The fare will be far less to travel back to the port. Although the port is new and lacks regular transportation, it is clear the Chinese anticipate a very high volume of shipping to pass through the port. There are an astonishing number of trees being planted on all the roads serving the port. There are also more than 3,000 foreign companies with shipping facilities under development at the port. Tip: Always have your passport with you; you will need it to buy a ticket on the high speed train from Tanggu to Tianjin or onward to Beijing. The train is very fast and efficient. I rated the port "poor" primarily because it is so isolated from Tianjin and Beijing; for someone arriving by ship with a day to see something of the area, it is not easily accessible and requires serious planning ahead.
