Beijing Airport Express
Taking the metro from Beijing airport to the Beijing city center a great way to travel from PEK to Beijing. The metro is fast, user-friendly (everything is written in English as well as Mandarin), and helpful in avoiding the Beijing city traffic.
Completed as a continuation of the 2008 Beijing Olympics metro building project, the Beijing Airport Express train takes passengers from Terminals 1, 2, and 3 of the Beijing Airport to two destinations in Eastern Beijing: Sanyuanqiao and Dongzhimen.
From these stations you can transfer to metro lines 10 and 2, respectively, to continue your journey.
Alternately, you can transfer to a taxi to get to your final destination in Beijing.
The metro from the Beijing Airport to the Beijing City Center costs 25 CNY each way. If you then transfer to the metro, you must exit the Airport Express turnstiles and pay 2 CNY for a metro ticket to continue your journey.
NB: If there are two or more people in your group, it might be less expensive to take a taxi from Beijing airport to the Beijing city center. This is especially true if you are staying in eastern Beijing.
