    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

    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.

    Did you know: the airport Peking is the longest building in the world - measuring 3250 meters from end to end. It also is the second largest passenger airport after Atlanta.

    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.📱🔌💰🔋🔑

    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

  • Jimmy T.

    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.

    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.

    Jet Airways · July 1, 2013
  • Lexandra H.

    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.

    Lexandra Heiniger · December 17, 2014
  • Teemu L.

    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.

    Teemu Lipponen · December 16, 2012
  • Emil Carlo

    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.

    Emil Carlo · August 4, 2013

    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

    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

    Brunold Loidl · May 8, 2013
  • Allison V.

    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!

    Allison Vella · October 21, 2012

    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.

    judy · October 9, 2014
  • F J.

    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. :/

    F J · December 4, 2014
  • Jimmy T.

    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.

    Jimmy Tan · June 21, 2013
  • Michael W.

    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???

    Michael Wong · August 30, 2015

    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.

    Jet Airways · January 10, 2013
  • Liliána B.

    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!

    Liliána Balogh🌺 · December 27, 2015
  • MIKR T.

    None of the flight carrier has mention anything that Your power bank "must" status the capacity on the power bank itself otherwise is it not allow in the flight ! Bullshit ! Japan brand don't state.

    MIKR Tat · May 26, 2015
  • 恵瑠 星.

    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.

    恵瑠 星野 · June 23, 2013
  • Tolga Y.

    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.

    Tolga Yonetsel · November 4, 2011
  • Atlas

    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)

    Atlas · December 31, 2013
  • Felipe B.

    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.

    Felipe Boaventura · April 22, 2013
  • Zo-Ee C.

    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!

    Zo-Ee Chee · June 27, 2014
  • sarah || aïs™

    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.

    Airport Express to Dongzhimen downtown takes ~30 mins. Fare: RMB 25. First trains: 06:21 (Terminal 3), 06:35 (Terminal 2). Lasts: 22:51 (T3), 23:10 (T2). รถไฟด่วนเข้าเมือง (Dongzhimen) 25 หยวน 1/2 ชม.

    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.

    Jet Airways · April 24, 2013
  • Sergio G.

    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

    Sergio Garcia · July 16, 2013
  • Derman G.

    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!

    Derman Gocmen · August 7, 2013

    Caffeine purveyors at T1 2F include: ACTING and Coolava who both accept ¥ and $; Queens and UBC only accept ¥. Starbucks is at T1 1F and also only accepts ¥. · October 3, 2011
  • Mark R.

    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.

    Must visit: Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is located in People’s Republic of China. It is a non-profit research & breeding facility for Giant Pandas.

    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.

    Jet Airways · February 28, 2014
  • Kai C.

    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.

    Kai Cao · August 15, 2014

    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!

    Jet Airways · January 16, 2015
  • Shaw

    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 ;-)

    Shaw · March 11, 2010
  • Paul A.

    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

    Paul Ark · January 30, 2014
  • Changhyun Y.

    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.

    Changhyun Yun · March 31, 2012
  • John Paul N.

    Beautiful courteous airport employees, especially this girl who pushes mom on her wheelchair, so polite.

    John Paul Nanong · August 7, 2014
  • Matthew T.

    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!

    Matthew Tsai · April 26, 2013
  • Alex A.

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

    Alex ADS · July 19, 2014
  • John 革命 G.

    Wifi access for those not from the mainland can be obtained at the Information Counter (for Terminal 3). Just show your passport.

    John 革命 Guilaran · July 21, 2014
  • Paul A.

    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

    Paul Ark · December 4, 2013
  • James K.

    Don't bother with the cabs at the airport. The traffic entering the city is horrible. You'll save time and money by taking the airport express train to either downtown stop and cabbing from there.

    James Kao · September 21, 2014
  • Mike C.

    The new T3 is beautiful, and has acceptable amenities by international standards. T2 is tiny and awful. Guess which one I usually fly out of?

    Mike Calcagno · June 14, 2015
  • Robin H.

    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).

    Robin Hwang · December 21, 2014
  • An X.

    Take the airport express into the city and catch a cab at Sanyuanqiao or Dizhimen. It's only 25 CNY and well worth the incredible view of Beijing coming in.

    An Xiao · February 4, 2011
  • A.T.

    YOUR LIGHTER WILL BE CONFISCATED at the security checkpoint so make sure you are not carrying your favorite one with you. Smoking area has there own cigarette-lightening device...

    A.T. · February 14, 2014
