    Another site, http://www.fodors.com, had a comment from someone saying there is at Beijing Airport a visa office leading to customs. And, if a person will be in airport less than 24 hours and shows his onward plane ticket, the office will stamp a visa allowing him to leave the airport. I should be there less than 14 hours on Aug 4. Any comments on this visa office?

    Beijing is in the process of approving an underground highway system. The project will consist of two tunnels each 10 lanes each way. The project will start construction in late 2016. We are going to have several large condo towers going in soon the government stated. There will be 40 towers. The smallest tower will be 80 floors while the largest will be 140 floors. In 2017 we will start construction of 6 Nuclear reactors in and near Beijing. We would like to add 5 million more residents in the next 10 years.
