The Beijing article provides a more comprehensive guide to those visiting the city, and the China article provides a comprehensive guide to the wider region

Beijing was the host city of the Olympic Winter Games in 2022, which makes it the first city to have hosted both the summer and winter Olympics. Beijing hosted the opening and closing ceremonies and the indoor ice events. The sliding events (bobsled, luge, skeleton) and some alpine skiing will be held at Xiaohaituo Mountain in Yanqing District, a distant subdivision of Beijing located about 80 km (55 miles) northwest of the city center. Other skiing events were at the Taizicheng ski area in Zhangjiakou, about 220 km (140 miles) from Beijing.

The games were held from 4 to 20 February 2022 and followed by the Winter Paralympic Games, 4 to 13 March 2022.

Tickets[edit]

Location of the venue clusters

Tickets for Olympic Games are often heavily oversubscribed. There is usually a different application process for residents of the host country than for foreign visitors.

Ticket arrangements are likely to be announced 2-3 years before the games start, with the application process starting about 1 year before the start.

Accommodation[edit]

Get in[edit]

Beijing is the biggest transport hub in Northern China with suitable transportation links extending in all directions. The modern international airports and road and rail network ensure ease of access.

By plane[edit]

Most international flights will arrive at Beijing Capital International Airport and Beijing Daxing International Airport. Other major international terminals in China are Shanghai and Guangzhou, but both of these are far from Beijing and would require transferring to a domestic flight.

By rail[edit]

Beijing is the railway hub of the nation and a major station in the Far East, with the trains to most provincial capitals and all the neighboring cities. There are a number of stations in Beijing, the Beijing Railway Station, Beijing West Railway Station, and Beijing South Railway Station are the most important. The former is mainly for long-haul trips, such as Beijing to Shanghai or the international trains directly to Moscow, Ulan Bator and Pyongyang, etc. Beijing South is for fast EMU trains to Tianjin, Shanghai, Qingdao, Jinan and etc. Beijing West is for trains run on Jingguang and Jingjiu lines. Tourists can attend the capitals of each province, the majority of large and medium-sized cities, autonomous regions in China. The other two stations offer short-haul trains to the neighbouring provinces.

By bus[edit]

Beijing is without doubt the largest intersection of the main roads in China, with twelve national highways in the north-east, south-east, south-west and south, and 8 major highways around the city, a total of 20,000 km.

Nineteen bus stations in Beijing service thousands of buses daily, to the neighboring cities such as Datong, Chengde, Tianjin, some depart every hour.

Visas and documentation[edit]

Most visitors require a visa to enter China - see China#Visas.

Get around[edit]

By rail[edit]

A high speed rail line to connect the three event clusters has been constructed, connecting Beijing and Zhangjiakou. You may take the train at Beijing North Station.

Cope[edit]

It's possible that internet censorship will be relaxed like it was for the 2008 Olympics. Then again, it's possible that it won't – the Great Firewall has gotten quite a bit stricter over the past decade or so.
