BCIA Airport, Beijing. Parking Structure. 637

NOTE: the Airports Blog is now part of the Airport and Airlines information at the Airport Directory: | Airport Information | Airports Blog

The Beijing, China Airport Parking Structure contributes to what is probably the world's most provocative Airport Design. Rising from the flatlands outside of Beijing like a massive bug, the beautifully designed BCIA is one of the world's most modern Airport facilities, one of many massive buildings China designed and built before the Beijing Olympics as symbols of the new China - the world's upcoming economic powerhouse.

Loaded with restaurants, duty free shops, and some wonderful decor this appealing Airport is an attraction in and of itself, though note that it can take up to an hour or more from the city as the Airport is NOT near the City Center, so make sure you allocate time and expect a cab fare of $20+ USD
