    On Sunday, December 22, 2019, we have a 5 1/2 hour layover in Peking (Beijing). My husband (74) and myself (71, educator) are arriving on Airbus A330-300 at 15:30 and departing on Boeing 777-300ER at 21:00. We would like very much to visit the Forbidden City and possibly Tiananmen Square. Even a short visit would mean the world to us. We do not have visas. We live in California, USA. Is this possible? We realize that of the 5 1/2 hour layover, probably only 2 1/2 -3 hours of it could be used for such a quick visit. We would each have one piece of carryon luggage with us. If that is a problem, each of us is allowed to checkin two bags from our departure point, Singapore.

      Hi Mary,

      Sorry, 5.5 hours is not enough to do a layover tour for sure. And we do not think you can get the visa free stamp because your time is too short.
