I'm wondering what the process is for leaving your luggage at the airport overnight. If you drop it off in one terminal, can you pick it up from a different terminal the next day?
Our flight lands at 6:00PM (Hainan Airlines - terminal 2) and we take an Air China flight to Bangkok (terminal unknown?) the following day at 1:40PM. Do you always pick up your luggage from one location? Will it take a lot of time to retreive our luggage if we have to pick it up from a different terminal than we are traveling from?
We want to go to the Drum Tower area for dinner/walking around once we leave the airport, but wish to stay at a bargain hotel closer to the Silk Market and a subway stop so that the next day we can briefly see Tiananmen Square/Forbidden City and stop in the Silk Market for an hour before heading back to the airport. This will all be easier if we can leave our luggage at the airport and just bring a small bag to dinner and then later to the hotel. Any recommendations for this?
If this seems impossible, does anyone have recommendations for where to stay, where to go to dinner, etc. to be able to see Tiananmen Square and the Silk Market the following day?
Thank you for the help!!!
