Formally located close to the West gate of Chaoyang Park, our new store is now situated in Xiaopu Art Village in the eastern Beijing suburb of Tongzhou.
GETTING TO OUR STORE
While it is outside the city, our store in Tongzhou is still very convenient and easy to get to!
A taxi from downtown Beijing (Sanlitun, for example) would take around 45 minutes and should cost no more than 80MB. Simply show the driver the following address or enter it into your taxi app.
Please note that while the correct name of our village and street is Xiaopu, some drivers, and some western map apps, will call it Xiaobao. This is because the character 堡 has two pronunciations, and can be a little confusing!
A bus from downtown to Xiaopu Village is very cheap and easy to take! If you'd like to take the bus, please go to the main bus terminal at Guomao (国贸) . You can take either the 808 or 809 bus, both of which leave from the bus station under the overpass, on the east side, heading east. Take the bus to Xiaopu Shangye Guangchang (小堡商业广场). The journey takes one hour and costs 1.5RMB with a transport card or 6RMB if you pay cash. Once you get off, our store is a five minute walk. See the map above for walking directions.
Line 6 goes directly through Tongzhou, and is the closest line to our store. Simply take Line 6 to Tongzhou Beiguan (通州北关), which takes 28 minutes from Hujialou (呼家楼). Once you arrive, take Exit B and either book a driver or take one of the cabs outside the subway to the above address. The drive from Tongzhou Beiguan should take no more than 10 minutes and cost around 20RMB.
