When to visit

The best times to visit Beijing are from March to May and from September to October. These temperate seasons provide the best climate and colourful scenery. Summer brings sweltering heat and winter sees cold temperatures and sometimes snow. September is a lovely time to visit and explore the city streets, the Forbidden City and the Summer City as it's not too hot and less humid. Spring is vibrant time to visit Beijing as the trees burst into bloom. Temperatures are around 12 °C.

Getting into Beijing from Beijing Airport   

With a range of transport options available at Beijing Airport, travelling into the city centre is easy. Choose from taxis, airport express train, shuttle bus, private transfer or hotel shuttle. The Airport Express Train is the fastest way and runs frequently. It runs from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2 and then to the city centre with stops at Sanyuanqiao and Dongzhimen. It takes approximately 20 minutes and tickets can be bought at the vending machines at the airport. The airport shuttle bus is a good way to get to various locations in Beijing with 13 routes heading to different areas in the city. The trip time takes approximately an hour, with shuttles every 30 minutes. Local buses are available, though they take longer to get to the city. Taxi is a convenient option to get to the city centre, e.g Tiananmen Square, depending on the traffic can take about an hour. If you are travelling in a group or after more privacy, you can book a private transfer service from PEK to your hotel. You can hire a car, though you need a Chinese driver's licence and there can be alot of traffic.

Getting around Beijing

Getting around Beijing can be easy with different ranges of transport available. Choose from public transport, taxi, ride share, bus or walking. The best way to get around Beijing and avoid the traffic is to take the subway. It's easy to use, signs are in English and the tickets are cheap. It's best to get a travel card to take you to the popular tourist attractions. To explore each neighbourhood, it's easy to walk around sections at a time. Beijing’s buses are a great way to get close up with the locals. They are everywhere, cheap and reasonably straightforward to use. Taxis are easy to find, though difficult to hail during rush hour. Alternatively, book a taxi through Didi (China's Uber) and it's best to have your destination written down in Chinese for the driver. You can choose from regular cars, city taxis or deluxe vehicles. Cycling is an enjoyable way to get around Beijing, especially in summer, as the city is flat and most roads have a bike lane. There is a bike-share system located throughout the capital city. A fun way to see the sights it to jump in a rickshaw or you may wish to join a guided tour.
