Badaling is the elite section and is noted for its majesty and strategic importance. You will proceed to the Sacred Way and the Ming Tomb. Being the main path leading to the Ming Tomb, the Sacred Way is lined with human and animal statues on both sides, which are believed to be the royal guardians. The Ming Tomb, as its name suggests, is a cluster of tombs for the 13 emperors and their wives in the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644AD). Then you will return to the downtown area and have a short stay near the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium) for taking photos.

If I take a train, how much time do I need to get from PEK airport to the train station?
Answered by Michell from DENMARK | Feb. 13, 2018 19:24

First of all, you are suggested to take a bullet train from Beijing West Railway Station to Wuhan. Then for the time to west station, take shuttle bus line 7 directly to the station, and it takes about 1h.
Answered by MICHELLED0505 | Feb. 13, 2018 20:03

Thanks. What is the better travel option?
Answered by Kina | Feb. 14, 2018 00:37

I suggest you take a plane to Wuhan directly. Shuttle bus line 7 to the West Station, where the high speed trains to Wuhan are available, may take much longer if there is traffic jam.

You can walk east for 10 minutes to Dongsi station and take line 6. Then, switch to line 4 at Pinganli and get off at Zoo. It takes about 30 minutes and CNY4.
It’s okay to the zoo at that time. Just enjoy yourself!

Which shuttle bus of PEK should I take to get to Beijing International Hotel?
I am traveling there for the first time on 19/9, arriving at 10.15pm, can I take a shuttle bus to or near the hotel (No.9 Jiangguo Mennei Street, Dongcheng? or it would be more appropriate to take a taxi at that time (after 11pm)?

Answered by Mindy from CANADA | Sep. 12, 2017 02:38

Shuttle bus line 3 can directly take you to the International Hotel and it operates till 00:00. It takes around an hour and costs CNY30 per person. U need to buy the ticket outside the terminals and boarding the bus nearby.

If taking a taxi, you may need to spend CNY100, and you can find outside the Arrival Hall.

I have one full day layover in Beijing on 24th August. Any suggestion how to maximize my experience?
I want to cover most important sightseeing spots

Answered by Peter from UNITED KINGDOM | Aug. 07, 2017 02:14

Oh, you can enjoy a lot in a day. I presume you wanna see the important spots in town. Go to Tiananmen Square and see the surrounding attractions from outside, such as Forbidden City and Tiananmen Tower. Then go to Qianmen for dining and shopping. After that, go to the Summer Palace, the royal garden, for a visit. If there is time left, have fun at Wangfujing Pedestrian Street or Yonghe Lama Monastery.
