Beijing is big. But getting around the city can be easy, fun, and mercifully cheap.
With six lines snaking all over the urban and suburban areas, the Beijing subway is extremely cheap, very rarely out of service but at times subject to horrendous crowds. Taxis are a plenty and equally affordable though with the rapid increase in the number of privately owned vehicles, traffic is often congested, making the bicycle a very popular mode of transport also.
For those jetset individuals, Capital Airport boasting the newly opened world class terminal three, has daily direct flights to a multitude of major destinations and located only 20 minutes from the CDB via the soon to be opened airport express train, makes international travel a breeze.
