-Best solution for groups and if you have a lot of luggage.
-You can make your booking in advance, before taking your flight, so your private driver will be waiting for you. (very convenient in the middle of the night)
-You can find driver and car with the Chinese app: 易到 copy/paste the name into your app store
-You may find a car on Didi, read: Click here: Didi application now in English in Tianjin, but 易到 is definitely better for this kind of trip.
You will need some Chinese skills
Cost: start at 422元, non-including toll fees.
