Travelling in China
The easiest way for you to reach Nankai University is to fly to Tianjin Binhai International airport (TSN). You can fly direct from East Asia (South Korea, Japan) or South East Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore). From elsewhere in the world you might need to transfer at one of the major international hub airports like Shanghai or Guangzhou or a city outside of China. Once you land at TSN, collect your luggage and head out to the arrivals hall. You’ll spot us in our bright red INTO t-shirts, waiting for you with your name on one of our branded signboards. Then it’s just a 30-minute transfer to your accommodation where you can unpack and freshen up.
Although we would recommend flying to Tianjin, you may find a more suitable flight to Beijing Capital International Airport. There’s a longer ground transfer involved and you’ll need to take a pre-arranged taxi for around RMB 1000 which you’ll need to pay in cash to the driver. We won’t be able to personally meet you at Beijing Capital Airport, but the taxi driver will inform us when you arrive on campus so we can help you with check-in. Alternatively you can take the Airport bus. There is usually an English-speaking member of staff on duty, who can help you buy your ticket to Tianjin bus station. The ride takes 2.5-3 hours to Tianjin bus station, and then you’ll need to take a taxi to your accommodation.
