So I'll have exactly 5 hours and 50 minutes in the Beijing airport, will it be easy for me to leave and come back? I don't know if I want to go around since I don't speak Mandarin and I'm a bit worried about getting run over by the crazy traffic over there.
Are cabs cheap and efficient? I'd really like to have at least one meal in Beijing since I've never been there.
Also is there anything noteworthy to eat in Hong Kong these days as well? Last time I was there for 5 months in 2007 so its been awhile.
