Travel Forums Asia Overnight layover in Beijing

Hey there,

I've got a 16-hour long layover in Beijing this summer, overnight, so my questions are as follow:

- how far is the city centre from the airport?
- what is there to do late afternoon/evening preferably not too far from the airport?
- is there a left luggage facility in the airport? Not too big a fan of the idea of lugging my stuff with me.

I've already been on an extended stay in Beijing, so not looking to do touristy stuff/visit landmarks so much as just enjoying a nice walk and a meal, and maybe do some shopping.

I took the Airport Express to central Beijing; and it was quick and easy.
