Getting There

Getting to Liyuan TheatreSee Google maps.

Liyuan Theatre is located in the Xicheng District, 3km south from the Forbidden City. It's also a lovely walk from Hepingmen subway station.

By Taxi or Rikshaw

To go there by taxi is a short and inexpensive trip from most downtown locations. However taxies are often difficult to find at this time which is why we recommend using public transportation when possible. You can go to the nearest metro station (see below) and from there you have more possibilities. If you cant find a taxi you can most probably find a rikshaw, both which cost just 10 yuan. You can also print/copy the following message and show it to the driver:

请送我到梨园剧场,位于前门建国饭店(西城区永安路175号), 电话:63016688,谢谢!

Translation: Please drive me to the Liyuan Theater, located in Qianmen Jianguo Hotel (175 Yongan Road, Xicheng District), Tel: 63016688, Thank you!

By Subway

The nearest subway stations are 2km away from where you can take a rikshaw, taxi or walk. Hepingmen station is North from the theatre on line 2 and Caishikou station is East from the theatre on line 4. The walk from Hepingmen station is easy and pleasent. The South Xinhua Street is filled with little artistic shops, restaurants and music instrument shops. (see map above)
