For the international to international transfer at PEK, the transfer procedures are simple. There are many English signs at the airport that can help you find the right direction. :)

Stockholm -> Beijing -> Manila
Checking with Air China, I found a flight with a nine hour daytime layover in PEK.

- Will I have to claim my checked luggage upon arrival and recheck it, or will it be transported for me?
- Can I leave the airport for a while, come back later and still make use of the free transit lounge included in my ticket?

1. No, you don't need to claim your checked luggage and recheck it. The luggage will be delivered to the destination directly.
2. Yes, you can leave the airport. But you need to apply for a Stay Permit at the airport first.

If the two airlines have luggage check through service, then you don't need to collect the luggage and re-check in. In addition, you don't need a visa. You can enjoy the 144 hrs visa free policy.
