Flight | Beijing to Harbin
Drive to Beijing Airport (Capital)
After a wonderful few days in Beijing, it’s time to move on to Harbin, China. Our guide (Jessie) and driver made sure we left early enough to make our flight on time. We encountered heavy traffic, but in the end, our drive from downtown Beijing to Beijing Capital International Airport went well and smoothly.
Beijing Capital International Airport
Our guide, (Jessie), took great care of us and helped us check in all the way until we had to go through airport security. Our experience at Beijing Capital International Airport today went well with no issues.
Flight – Beijing to Harbin – China Southern Airlines
We had a smooth flight to Harbin on China Southern Airlines. It was a relatively short flight – flight time was only around 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Our in-flight meal was a bit interesting – a small bag lunch/dinner that consisted of a sandwich made from sticky rice and egg, a fruit snack, an orange, and bottled water.
We got an unexpected surprise when leaving the Beijing area – awesome aerial views of the Great Wall! I was lucky to capture a few cool pictures. The remaining views (before it got dark) were of vast snow-covered tundra (in all directions).
Harbin Taiping International Airport
Another great flight and easy transit through Harbin Taiping International Airport. We got our bags and quickly met up with our new guide (Sherry) and driver – who were waiting for us in the waiting area.
Now it was time to make our way to our hotel in Harbin (Harbin Splendent Hotel).
