    Stupidest Airport ever seen.The western/fast food is available at arrivals which i don't bother to eat after my flights & those look like seating arrangements for arrivals waiting hosts playing cards.

    Huge airport. For first time travellers, arrive early and forward plan to navigate around. Food offering past the departure security checkpoint is poor. Eat prior. Allow 30 mins for security check.

    Massive airport, but i liked the layout and the atmosphere. Make sure to try the Thai restaurant. Perfumes at the duty free are reasonably priced..

    Pretty modern and well functioning airport. Be prepared for a long walk to the departure/arrival area of you are parking at the parking lot in T3.

    The international departure area could use some improvement. Large screens to notify which flights are checking in at which gate numbers.

    With classic Beijing traffic, it can take you a good 45 minutes to hour to reach the city (or get to the airport), so give yourself time.

    Very strict, they take everything away from you eg lighters, Chargers even coins... Check your passport 10 times if they see your flight is later they put you in longer queues to wait!

    Pro tip...make sure to take out your chargers, electric cords, keys, coins & place them in a separate bin at security. It'll save you a few minutes from having to rescan your bags.📱🔌💰🔋🔑

    Be prepared to have your passport and boarding pass check 4 times. Final queueing for x-ray can be chaotic - expect at least 30 mins. Didn't see s business class fast track???

    The Forbidden City; one of Beijing’s most popular tourist attractions, is considered to be the largest palace complex in the world. The palace is from the Ming and Qing dynasties and was built in 1420

    Lama Temple: This exceptional temple is a glittering attraction in Běijīng’s Buddhist firmament. If you only have time for one temple make it this one!

    Not much to do, see or shop at this airport. But at least there's a Starbucks in the T3 int'l terminal. Also, be sure to HAND CARRY any power banks (max of 2).

    From the first sight Terminal is clean and nice, but you'll find few surprises: it is pretty hard to connect to wifi, no western food, all the eating places are closed in a night time.

    Gimpo/Korea and Haneda/Japan are so much nicer with great food/beverage options and english speakers with a smile not staff/security who play games and we-chat on their phones. :/

    Very modern airport. The toilets were ultra clean . Important tip : If you are arriving here from overseas make sure you carry a byro or some pen to write on the arrival document . They don't have one

    Quick tips for the domestic terminal: 1) free wifi for 4 hrs - same code for multiple devices. 2) Starbucks in the basement for semi comfy chairs, but no extra power is visible.

    Massive but easy, futuristic but without forgetting the past. The new terminal designed by Sir Norman Foster is a state-of-the-art masterpiece. Free wifi and showers. But... Lighters are not allowed

    Welcome to Beijing! If you have a Discover card, simply use it like a local card issued by UnionPay anywhere in mainland China. No foreign transaction fee, no dynamic currency conversion fee.

    Pop in your passport in one of the dozen machines giving free wifi codes throughout all the airport. Most shops close early at night.

    Phone battery packs and chargers aren't allowed in your carry-on luggage so make sure that you either pull them out before the security check and show it to them or stick it in your check-in luggage!

    Many of China’s beautiful Buddhist temples did not survive the Cultural Revolution but the Lama Temple is an exception. Do not miss this temple when visiting Beijing.

    If you have any electronics in your carry-on, this is THE worst airport to fly out of. Every single piece, including cables and cords, need to be removed and separately scanned at the security check

    terrible layout. make sure no one lies to you about baggage transfers if you have any and make sure you are in the proper terminal (there are technically 5, three of which require a lengthy bus ride)

    X-ray scanners can't properly scan bags w/o removing each piece of electronic equipment first, incl. cords, earphones & plugs. Pack accessories up in a smaller baggie to get through more efficiently

    The worst airport I have ever been!!! The terminals are packed, there is no seating, and people are sitting on really disgusting, musty carpeting in the corridors! No international restaurant!

    Lots of scammers especially at Longmai Mingshi, beside the herbal facilty. A man will pose as son of the owner of the shop and give you big discounts on very expensive items. Do not be fooled.

    Do not change money in the airport, the fee charge is ¥60 each, in Hotels exist machines that change any money at ¥20 fee for each change until US$410, change for the taxi only

    The Forbidden City contains fantastic examples of porcelain, ceramic, and carved decorations. Of the carvings, probably the most fantastic is the Carved Olive Stone Boat in the Palace Museum.

    Terribly bad airport with few cafés that are fu*king expensive and very far from boarding gate if you take a international flight. And also my flight was late for taking over an hour to change tires.

    Get your prepaid simcard from the kiosks found at the arrival hall. Upon checking in, expect to spend 30-45 minutes at the immigration and customs area. Thus allocate ample time before your flight.
  • Jimmy T.
    Jimmy TanJune 21, 2013
    Don't expect to find much food variety after the immigration for international bound passengers. There is more variety of food at the public area of the airport. Don't expect much from the free wifi.

    There is a post office one level below arrivel - its very convenient and cheap to mail things you brought with you by plane. They have also packing service

    Be patience, this country is so inefficient and lousy, so this airport. Security check is unbelievable rude and useless, you don't even know what they are checking for!

    Must Visit: The Great Wall of China, 6,259 kms long, stretching from Shanhaiguan in the east, to Lop Lake in the west was built to repel Mongol invaders in the early centuries.

    The airport is huge, add time for the transits. Take care with taxis, communist drivers love money. A taxi to the central area cannot cost more then 100 yuans / 15 dollars.

    If you are 4 / more people with big lugage, go to gate 9, and go to information next to the taxi queue line, ask for rent mini van. To go Wangfujing area is 400-500rmb.

    Must visit: The Forbidden City (Palace Museum), a World Heritage site since 1987, which imparts a sense of grandeur and wealth, an aura of pomp and majesty that has passed down the ages.

    The street Nanluogu Xiang is about 700 years old, now with its small boutiques, street cafés and bars it is a popular meeting point for Beijing's creative scene and a real attraction for tourists.

    When looking for a restaurant, prefer the ones that have the most local people eating there. WiFi works quite good, but it's not easy to login to the western some services. Got to be creative.

    This airport, or at least T3, lacks good ways to waste time during a layover. Free wifi but connecting is a pain and facebook's inaccessible (so really what's the point?). It is also freezing in here!

    A lot of people doing a lot of things very quickly with a purpose. I am impressed. Unlike the Honolulu airport, the fried rice here does taste like spam.

    You cna use free wifi by using machines, if you have a passport. But it is very hard to find it because this airport is extreamly big more than you imagine.

    Shame. İt is 21,00 and all shops were already closed. How can such a airport does not think its passanger can wine a prize. Shortly, if your flight is later than 2100 do your shopping before.

    When flying MU domestic out of T2, avoid the zoo that is the main MU first class lounge. Take the elevator behind the jewelry shop to the secret 3rd floor lounge ;-)
