Overview
Rather than staying inside the airport, make the most of even limited time in Beijing during a layover trip to the Great Wall of China, both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New7Wonders of the World. Stress-free pickup and drop-off from the airport ensures you don’t waste a minute, while the insider knowledge of a guide ensures you understand history crucial to China’s development as a global superpower.
