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?

    What passport are you using? – Michael Hampton May 31 '19 at 18:49

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/
