Where to stay in Beijing - Beijing (PEK-Capital Intl.)

Beijing International Airport Hotels

Beijing Capital International Airport is a vast hub of aviation based 32 kilometres northeast of central Beijing’s Dongcheng district - the Old City. This ever-busy enormous airport bustles with passengers from around the world, who dine in the fine or fast-food restaurants, and splurge in the ritzy fashion boutiques, cosmetics stores, and off-duty outlets. The airport is connected to central Beijing via speedy rail - meaning that the city’s old-world temples, palaces, and museums are just a ride away.

Things to see

Arriving at Beijing Capital International Airport, you might find yourself getting distracted by its many upscale wonders. The ultra-modern Terminal 3 - with its red-orange crosshatched roof and smooth white marble floors - houses a magical indoor garden, landscaped in classical Chinese style. Meanwhile, the domestic retail area - which hosts everything from cutting-edge electronics to tempting confectionary stores - is bound to attract shoppers. Once you make it to central Beijing, lovers of local heritage should amble across the wide statue-studded Tiananmen Square to the Forbidden City, a sprawling palace complex composed of 15th century timber halls, decorated in shimmering gold filigree. Today, the Forbidden City contains the Palace Museum, which displays enormous collections of old-world porcelain and bronzeware artefacts. In the afternoon, stroll around the serene Summer Palace, a lakeside gathering of pavilions and red-washed towers scattered across rocky tree-blanketed outcrops.

Here, you’ll be a mere 30 minute train or taxi ride to central Beijing, but benefit from doorstep airport access - ideal for those very late or very early flights. If you want to experience an authentic and traditional Beijing atmosphere, stay in the central Dongcheng district, where you’ll be surrounded by the city’s top heritage sights, family-run Peking Duck restaurants, and bouncing street markets.

How to get to Beijing International Airport

Beijing Capital International Airport serves year-round flights direct from top cities across the globe, including European hotspots like London, Amsterdam, and Paris. Flight time from London takes just over 10 hours. Although hordes of taxicabs await outside the airport, ready to whizz you to central Beijing, there’s also an Airport Express train that runs regularly to and from Dongzhimen Station, where you can connect to the rest of Beijing’s extensive subway network. Be aware, though, that the Airport Express stops at 11pm each evening. To explore the rest of Beijing, make use of the subway system - taxicabs are popular too, but best avoided during rush hour.
