Beijing , CN
Beijing Capital International Airport lies 32km north-east of the city centre, and is the world's second busiest airport. It has three terminals, in separate buildings (though a walkway links Terminals 1 and 2):
Travelling between terminals
Distances between Beijing’s Terminals are large. It is strongly recommended to have enough time to go from one terminal to another.
You can take a free shuttle bus between all three terminals. Shuttles leave roughly every 10 minutes from 06:00-23:00, and every 30 minutes from 01:00-05:00. Stops are located at Terminal 1, level 1, outside Gate 7. Terminal 2, level 1, outside Gate 7. Terminal 3, level 1, Gate 5
Terminals 1 and 2 lie close together, and there's a walkway between them, requiring a walk of around 10-15 minutes.
If you’re from one of these countries, you don't need to get a visa in advance for trips less than 72 hours. Print out the details of your connecting flight and fill in an Arrival Form to enjoy visa-free travel for 72 hours in China. Other cities offer visas on arrival, for a fee, but this service is offered free to facilitate the travel of international visitors. Be aware that you must fly out of the same airport you flew into.
There are many lounges in Beijing airport, though most of them are operated by local Chinese or Asian airlines.
Rental cars for international guests are not common in China. Driving requires a Chinese license which can be hard to get and traffic in China is often considered dangerous. Therefore there is no specific rental car center.
However there is a AVIS rental station in a hotel next to the airport:
