I am going to Beijing towards the end of April. My plane arrives at 1:45pm on a Monday and then I fly out on Tuesday at 4:15pm.
Based on this travel schedule, I would lappreciate it if someone could reccomend what I should/could see in this time frame.
I was thinking about staying at the Beijing Hilton so I could be near Sanlitun that night.
Is it possible to see the Forbidden City & Tian'an Men the afternoon (after checking into the hotel?) I arrive?
I was then thinking about going to the Great Wall on Tuesday and then the airport. Is there any good shopping between the Great Wall and the Airport.
In regards to the airport, how early are you allowed to check your bags in for a domestic flight? I would hate to have to lug my bags around.
I am open to any suggestions that will make my very short trip in Beijing memorable.
If getting a guide with a private car is smart, can someone recommend a service to contact for the 24 hours I will be in Beijing?
