  1. Dear Sir,
    My wife and I will be returning from Beijing to our Cruise ship (Celebrity Millenium) on 29 March 2017 via bullet train C2593 arriving at Tanggu Station at 21.21 pm. Could you please confirm that taxis will be available at that time to transfer us from Tanggu Station to Tianjin Port,
    Thank you,
    Robert Swan.

  2. Hi Robert Swan,

    Basically there shoulbe taxis available outside Tang train station. If you don’t find any taxis around the train station. No worry! The train staion is located in the downtown of Tanggu. Basically taxis are available 24 hours per day in Tanggu. So just walk around and spot a taxi and go.

    Have a nice time !
