Beijing Airport

Quick question-

I will be going to PEK for Christmas, and was wondering what the airport is like! Anything like PVG?

Thanks,

From what I have heard, the new terminal is just as new as Pudong Airport, little over a year old. It's very modern and with lots of shops. Please let me know when you come back how it is. I'm going in July and I'm particulary interested in possibilities of taking pictures from inside the Terminal. Have a great trip!!! The777Man

Yeah, the new terminal looks quite a lot like PVG. It´s a very bright biulding, with lots of glass so you can see a lot of the action on the tarmac from inside. Besides, now there are heaps of airbridges so boarding by bus now is an exception. I´ve been there last July and will go again next March, and I´m already looking forward to be in this terminal again. In the old terminal immigration and baggage claim used to be a big mess and the check in area was even worse. But now everything works fine. I think you will like it!
Have fun in Beijing!
