am thinking of flying to Beijing before going on to Phuket. One of the connecting times at Beijing airport is 9 hours. Do you have to stay in the airport for all of the time. or do get an opportunity to go out and explore?



You can certainly leave the airport as long as you have proper entry credentials for the country. You either need a full visa for China or depending on your citizenship you may be able to get a transit Visa: https://www.travelchinaguide.com/embassy/visa/free-72hour/
