Can I purchase a silk duvet at the Beijing Int'l airport?

Will be in Beijing tomorrow for a 24 hour stop over and was wondering if I could purchase a high quality silk duvet and cover at the airport or nearby. Could you please advise. Thanks.

Anything you buy at the airport will be far more expensive than in town. I don't know if they do sell such things there. Are you staying in town - if so, where? Maybe someone can suggest a shop close by.

We will be staying at the Hilton Beijing International Hotel so I am not sure if we will have the the time or energy to wander too far from the hotel. We are just wrapping up a three week holiday in China, and unfortunately, I did not purchase a duvet on my travels and am now regretting that oversight.

Hmmm. That's right next door to Terminal 3- not really handy for shopping, unless anyone else knows different.

I can't recall any silk duvet purveyor at the airport. You'll need to go into town if you want something like this. If you have a 24-hour layover, there should be plenty of time to do this if buying one is a priority.

Have a picture of the one you like with exact measurements and show it to the concierge. Here in China everyone knows someone who can organize things on short notice against a tip. Surely not the most cost-effective option but 100% stress free. However do not expect to get 100% what you wanted. Read about the meaning of "cha bu duo" in China ;-)
