The subway network of Beijing is the longest and the busiest across the globe (2016). It is quick, efficient, and cheap. If opting for an authentic local experience, go for the subway any day. It is intricately connected to most parts of the city. Buses are a great option as well as far as affordability is concerned. Rickshaws are a must-try in the hutong alleys. Not many know that bicycles are one of the most popular preferences here. A good chunk of the outdoor area is dedicated to bicycle stands.

Bullet trains are a great means for intercity travels to Hong Kong, Shanghai, and more. One must anyway experience bullet trains when in China. The Tianjin Cruise Port is just 200 km away for a memorable cruise experience in the country. There is a special subway line called The Airport Express for movement from the airport but most serviced apartments provide that facility anyway.

As far as air travel is concerned, Beijing is home to 2 huge airports and a new 3rd one. While Beijing Capital International Airport is the largest in the country, Nanyuan Airport and Daxing International Airport are the other less popular additions.

Weather in Beijing

Being the capital of extreme weather conditions, the city is most pleasant between March to May and August to November. Both summers and winters being bitter, the spring and autumn seasons are most loved by visitors here. The air quality is comparatively much better during these months. The temperatures during the spring season range from 14-20 °C. The Autumn period witnesses the range of 15-25 °C. 

With so much to experience and explore, Beijing deserves a closer look as a passionate local which can only be possible if one spends a few weeks or months in this historic capital of China.
