To help travelers to Asia’s biggest cities, we are running a series of articles on how to travel from major airports to downtown. Today, we’re focusing on Beijing.
Beijing’s main airport, Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) is situated 32 km northeast of central Beijing.
The simplest way to get to downtown is via the Airport Express line. There are stations at Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. The journey to the city takes 16 to 20 minutes, and a one way ticket costs 25 RMB. Trains run every 15 minutes. City-bound trains depart Terminal 3 from 6:21am to 10:51pm and Terminal 2 from 6:35am to 11:10pm.
