Beijing means ‘Northern Capital’. In addition to being one of the most ancient cities in China, it is widely regarded as the cultural centre of the country, famous for its museums, palaces and picturesque parks. The diversity of the city’s architecture, ranging from ancient temples to modern skyscrapers, even within the same block, will leave you amazed.
Although Beijing has undergone massive and rapid modernisation, the city has managed to keep its charm. Small tea houses hidden in cosy lanes, traditional stores, ancient temples and bustling streets make this city very special indeed.
Aeroflot flies nonstop from Moscow to Beijing every day. Flights arrive at Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA) in about eight hours. This is the fastest and most convenient way to get to the capital of China.
Since the most affordable tickets often sell out quickly, we recommend that you book your flights well in advance. The best deals are for round trips and connecting flights.
