The Beijing Capital International Airport is about 25 kilometers from downtown Beijing. To reach downtown, travelers can use the airport shuttles, taxi and now the subway that linking the terminal 1 and terminal 2 from the airport to the downtown. For foreign travelers, taxi a good choice of transportation, you do not bother to connect buses, also taxi service is inexpensive in Beijing. A taxi trip from Beijing airport to downtown normally costs about RMB100 = USD 17. Also, you do not have to wait long for the taxi as several hundreds of taxi queuing up in the airport for their passengers 24 hours a day.
6. When is the best time to travel to Beijing?
Beijing is suitable for travel year-round but the best time to visit Beijing is from April to early November. It is worth noting that the city is very busy and crowded during the National Day Holidays (1st to 7th, Oct) and the Spring Festival that falls during January or February depending on the lunar cycle. While during July and August the weather is very hot. For these reasons, the city is probably best avoided at these times. So, the best time is April, May, September and October (besides National Day Holidays) when it is very much cooler and not crowded. The average temperature at this time reaches approximately 15C by day falling to a low of around 5C at night.
7. Is it safe to go out late in Beijing?
Beijing is a pretty safe city, but going out late is not a good idea, especially alone. Though serious crime against foreigners is rare, pick-pocketing and purse-snatching has increased in recent years. Like anywhere else, it is always wise to be cautious especially when you are in a strange and crowded city.
