Air China or China Airlines I reckon. You might have to transit in Xiamen. Best places to check out fares are Pricebreaker, Misa Travel and Chan Brothers. Always ask for nett price because the price listed are not inclusive of taxes. The last time I flew to Beijing via Air China, transitting at Xiamen, cost me about $550 nett. But I'd rather fly a direct flight in the future to save the time.

Beijing has lots to see. It's historically and culturally rich. Forbidden City, Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Summer Palace, Jingshan Park, hu-tongs, 798 art district etc. I was so overwhelmed by their heritage sites that I almost forgotten about shopping! Best places for shopping are Silk Street Market (they are no longer good I heard), Jia Yi, Alient Street (where all the Russians go to) and another one which I forgot. They have levels and levels of shops that sell virtually identical stuff so you can bargain till you drop.
