Hey there everyone!
I'm becoming increasingly concerned, reading some of the posts here, that my and my two kids will not be allowed out of the airport in Beijing for our 13 hour layover next month. There seems to be no particular rhyme or reason for who is allowed to go and see Beijing and who is only allowed to go see the vending machines in the airport.
Is there any advice as to how to increase the likelihood that the customs official will take pity on us and our extended layover and allow us out to go see the city or take a tour? Anything from the color of clothes we wear, the expressions we should have on our faces, anything we should (or should not say), etc? The thought of having to sit in an airport with a ten and a fourteen year old for 13 hours straight is down right depressing.
Thanks in advance!
