Best Beijing Airport Layover Tours Tips

Great Wall

If your final destination has a long layover in Beijing airport, you should make plans outside of the airport. Overall, Beijing is considered a pretty popular layover destination, with most passengers who transit the airport. There is no better way to plan your layover in Beijing than arranging a Beijing airport layover tour. Here are some essential tips to consider when planning a Beijing airport layover tour.

Most travelers assume that they can save money by arranging a trip to the Chinese Wall by themselves. But it is a pretty long distance from the airport. If you plan to make the trip in a taxi, you may have to request the taxi driver to wait at the Wall entrance until you are ready to get back to the airport. That sort of arrangement will cost you a lot of money. Hence, the best way to tour the Chinese Wall is by arranging a layover tour with a tour company at the airport. There are tour operators that specialize in layovers. All these people want to know is your flight number, arrival time, and desires. Once you give this information to the tour operators, they will come up with the perfect itinerary for your layover tour.

A professional layover tour operator will perfectly plan the itinerary so that you are back at the airport in time to catch your next flight. When planning your Beijing layover tour, you need to choose a professional and experienced tour operator.

China has the ideal visa for passengers in the city just for a layover. You can quickly get a 72-hour transit visa by filling in a small form and giving it to customs. You will get this form on the airplane. You should make sure to print out the tickets for the next flight and have an itinerary ready to prove that you are here for transit purposes.

The Great Wall of China is a landmark you shouldn’t miss when arranging a layover tour with a professional tour operator. Mutianyu is a part of the Wall situated northeast of Beijing – which is about a 1.5-hour drive away from the Beijing airport. This part of the Wall is quite beautiful. They have a giant slide from the Wall to the exit. The Forbidden City of Beijing is another exciting attraction in Beijing. It was the home of the Chinese empires decades ago. These are some of the most important things to consider when planning a layover tour at Beijing airport.

The Imperial Vault of Heaven sits in the centre. It is a round building with a roof that resembles the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, though smaller and with only one gable of eaves and a single tier marble base. The back half of the building is constructed with bricks. In the past, the vault contained memorial tablets of the emperor's ancestors

    Hello, I would like to get from PEK airport on 7th of May to the Great wall of China ( the trail I choose to do is not as important at the moment). How much it will cost a personal driver? Can you arrange it for me?
    And I would like to get back to Beijing city center the same day.

    Thank you in advance for your response.
    Kind regards
