You could take the airport express to reach Dongzhimen Station firstly, and transfer to subway line 2, then change to subway line 1 at Jianguomen Station, get off from Subway line 1 at Tiananmen East Station, you will reach Tiananmen Square, and it takes at most 1 hour for the transportation. You may visit Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City which are the significant attractions.
