For hotel selection, for 1-day layover tour, downtown area or hotel near airport is a good choice. For Beijing Tour more than 2 days, we highly recommend downtown area within 4 rings, then you’ll save lots of time for transportation.
You may travel on your own with MTR card sold at airport express and MTR customer service centers. There is a convenient commute in downtown city and airport with your metro card solely. Taxi might be a good option too but better avoiding the traffic jam. Remember to bring cash with you!
