We endured almost 10 hours just to get to Beijing from KL. We’re flying with Thai Airways – so it is a-must for them to stop at Bangkok for few hours before continuing the journey to Beijing. So, at 9pm we left KLIA and reached Bangkok International Airport (BIA) at 11pm. Then we waited till 2.40am before leaving BIA. We arrived at Beijing Capital International Airport at 6.30 in the morning – and we were exhausted!

Being here for 3-4 days, I could observe how the people thrive in this city, how transportation works and night life in Beijing.
