How to land a low priced flight to Beijing booking advice, visa information and airports and airlines tips


The Chinese love their food, this becomes apparent from the array of dishes on offer in Beijing. Dining out is the main social activity for locals; this accounts for the impressive 60,000 restaurants on offer. Book your cheap flights to Beijing and find authentic cuisine from all over China.

Be inspired

Beijing’s historical delights are the envy of cities the world over, with six UNESCO classified world heritage sites to visit. The magical Forbidden City is unmissable and the Summer Palace (Yiheyuan) is also worth a visit. Here you’ll find almost 300 acres of gardens, bridges, temples, pavilions as well as the occasional shop and tea house.

Be entertained

Book seats at the Chaoyang Theatre and prepare to be dazzled by acrobats and gymnasts performing breath-taking routines. These incorporate chairs, bikes, spinning plates and, of course, their own amazing strength and flexibility. No need to worry if you book last minute flights, as there is often no need to book a spot at the spectacularly modern National Centre for the Performing Arts. Take your pick from concerts, the opera or ballet.

When to go

Beijing experiences four distinct seasons: A long and fairly chilly winter, a windy springtime, a long hot summer, and a cooler, pleasant autumn. However, the city can be humid year-round. The most comfortable time for sightseeing is in the autumn, so we’d recommend this as the perfect time to book your 2018 Beijing flights.
If you are looking for the best deals on flights to Beijing, it is best to avoid booking during the high season, which is from the beginning of May to the first week of October, and in January and February during the winter festivities. It is also worth looking at the indirect flights to Beijing on Netflights, as they can be cheaper.

Beijing is a city of contrasts, always full of action, and absolutely non-stop. We suggest that you keep your eye on last-minute flights throughout the year, as there is always something exciting and entertaining on.

Getting around the airport

Three terminals are in operation at Beijing Capital International Airport. You can travel between terminals 1 and 2 via a covered public walkway, which will take you 10-15 minutes. There are also shuttle buses that link all three terminals together.

Getting to the city from the airport

Beijing has an extensive public transport network. When you disembark from your flight, it is very easy to either take the subway or a shuttle bus into the city centre. Services are frequent and reliable. Alternatively, you could book a taxi, or hire a car from one of the many car hire companies in operation at the airport.

Don't forget before you fly

Return flights to Beijing for trips lasting less than 72 hours or three days don’t require a visa; you will need a visa if you intend to stay longer. Ensure that you have return flights to Beijing booked, or at least have a flight booked to take you out of the country to another destination. Contact the Chinese Embassy, or the China Visa Application Service Centre in good time before leaving and they will be able to advise and guide you through the process.
