For Delegates

Beijing is the most important transportation hub in China's mainland, be it by air, rail or road. The city has an extensive public transportation network of buses, trolleybuses and a rapidly expanding subway system. However, in such a metropolis with some six million registered cars on its roads almost every day, traffic congestion in the city's urban area may be unavoidable, especially during rush hours (around 8:00 am and 6:00 pm).


Most foreign visitors come to Beijing by air and arrive at the Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA).
