We arrive in Shanghai at 7am from the US via Paris and wish to fly on to Beijing on a separate ticket. We would have to clear customs, immigration and all the other things after landing. I've heard that this can take some time.
If I booked the onward flight to Beijing at around 11:00am, would that be enough time to pass through the formalities and get to the next gate?
Can I safely book an earlier flight (say around 10:00am) to Beijing?
