O.M.G.... This has to be one of the tightest security airports in the world !!! Went on vacation to Shanghai but had to connecting flight in Bejing first. Being my first time in China who knew we had to go through security just to connect to our Shanghai flight because a use it was still China Air. Well , when I saw airport security wearing combat boots I knew I we were in for it. They searched the contents my bag thoroughly and dumped most of the contents in a bin..My little bottles of allowed alcohol was confiscated because it was brought from duty free and was opened. I did ask but knew not to get into any confrontations cause I wasn't going to go to jail in China...
When you are wand you step up on a block and a person of the same sex will wand every..and I mean every part of your body no exceptions !! When they finish you might ask why didn't they buy you a drink ?? I was kinda traumatized that I walked away from the security area and left my very expensive purse with all my id's, passport and money..While waiting by a store for about more than five minutes the female from security ran up to me with my purse and said , You left this .....OMG !!! Sishe..... (Thank You) ...Now onto Shanghai...I feared coming back through Bejing Airport but I had no choice..After our ten days it was time...Well, it takes at least 1 1/2hours to get through the airport including Customs and Security so be very patient....cause you have no choice....Once we finally cleared everything we waited at our gate. Beautiful and very confusing airport.Extremely clean !!! I had to admit when our flight was announced I couldn't wait to leave China...we began boarding for our flight but wait...Here we go again Security searches you again asking "Do you have any water " ? and checks your bags... If buy any liquids in the airport you are not allowed to consume them on the plane.. I must admit the TSA needs to retrain with the Chinese !! All I can say " God Bless America "
