Airport Shower Facilities

by rafi.of.gali.gali

Hello my fellow VT's, here's Rafi again with another question:

The trip back home from North Korea will start with a 24 hour journey to Beijing by train and then a 10 hour flight to London.
I would be deeply appreciated to take a shower in the middle of both (after the train ride and before stepping into the plane)
I have something as 3 and a half hours between arriving at the train station and the time my flight departs.

So... what do you honestly think are my options? What would you do?

I emailed Beijing Airport (PEK) about shower facilities, but they haven't answered yet. Do you know if Beijing airport has shower facilities?
If so, where are they located? Before or after check in? (important because of the clothes/luggage)
If those facilities exist, do they provide towels and foot slippers?

In alternative, I heard that hotels nearby the airport have a rent-by-the-hour room service for this matter. Do you know anything regarding this matter?

Or perhaps hotels near train station?
Other alternatives?

Thank you very much!

I'm not sure you have time to do anything other than go direct to Beijing International Airport anyway, you need to be there 2 hours before your flight (there may be long queues at check-in and after that you have passport controls and security checks, and within the airport, you have to take a train to get to the correct terminal!). That leaves 90 minutes to get from the station to the airport and depending on how you are getting there (and traffic conditions), it may take all of that.
The Air China business lounge in Terminal 2 has shower facilities and I believe (though I am not sure!) you can purchase access to the lounge for the equivalent of something like 25 USD.

Will you arrive at Beijing main train station, or somewhere else?
What time will you arrive, and what time is your flight out?

Re: Airport Shower Facilities

by rafi.of.gali.gali

I will arrive, I think, at Beijing's train station. Well, I come from North Korea, if that helps.
Estimated arrival time: 8,30.
Flight to London: 12,15.

Your suggestion? :)

You need to be at the airport by 1015. (I presume you're arriving in the morning, and departing a little after noon.) You'll take around 1 hour to get to the airport, whether you go by metro or taxi. Better not risk looking for a place to have a shower at the train station.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Grand and magnificent

by meteorologist1

The Temple of Heaven Park is marked not only by its famous Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest and Echo Wall, but also by its large open spaces with a sense of symmetry. In this photo, for example, I stand in the center and look directly straight, I can see the entrance to the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest far away. On the other hand, if you stand somewhere else off center, you will not be able to see it. This is just my experience.

Hot orange juice

by marielexoteria

While waiting for our train to Badaling, we were walking around and found this KFC. We stopped by and had something to eat when one of us (VT globe_trekker) ordered hot orange juice. I tried it and it tasted like watered down orange soda.

Zhou Kou Dian - Peking Man Site

by meteorologist1

Zhou Kou Dian, the site where the fossils and remains of the Peking Man (Homo erectus) was discovered, is located about 48 km or 30 miles southwest of Beijing. The age of the fossils is estimated to be between 500,000 and 300,000 years old. There is an interesting museum about the Peking Man there. The admission fee is 20 yuan and the tour takes about an hour.

Liulichang Cultural Street

by sunnywong about (Chinese: 琉璃廠)

Liulichang Street was once a flourishing cultural center during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) where scholars, painters and calligraphers gathered to purchase materials, exchange ideas, compose poetry, write books and paint pictures.

In the modern age, the street renovations and have transformed the street into an antique market that resembles a Chinese village. The shops that flank the street are filled with genuine and convincing imitation paintings, calligraphy, pottery, carpets, vases, books, scrolls and chops. All genuine antiques purchased here can be taken out of China as experts have authenticated them and certificates are available in the stores.

The street is a mixture of state-run and privately owned shops and you should definitely bargain before making purchases. There are also replicas of traditional teahouses and wineshops, as well as a Confucian restaurant for tourists to rest and enjoy Chinese cuisine

The Den Bar & Restaurant

by karinyeung about The Den Bar & Restaurant

If you want to get away from the standard raving (techno, etc.) music that permeates the majority of western night clubs in Beijing, the Den is a good place for top 40 and hip hop. The decor could definitely use some is modelled after the whole Shanghai triad lanterns and all... Get there early if you want a booth for a base. The layout isn't great...most of the seats are on the bottom floor while the dance floor is on the top... The floor is always crowded and very dark. It's still one of the pitstops on your way around the San Li Tun circuit though... (Also serves a decent breakfast if you are up 'til dawn...) None
