Hmm Korean and Japanese in Beijing T3. I think this is the first time I've seen it at Chinese airports, I guess theres more and more Koreans and Japanese going in and out of China. Then again even Incheon have Chinese signs.

Err actually you can already find Korean and Japanese signs at the current Beijing T2.

Fantastic new terminal, by the way.

Are most of the developments at the bottom residential or commercial?

But overall looks impressive!

"farest" is correct, some countries use farthest. As for the #s, yes they should have listed them from smallest to largests

I really wonder sometimes who the hell design the all the signs in China, is it that hard to get them right?? I mean this is a world class facility, and they screw up on the signs.

Here are the pictures from the BeijingUpdates.com forums.

IMO, the steam from the ponds and the blue lights just look tacky

Well it didn't open yet so I guess they still have time to fix it. I reckon that authorities dislike Westerners, but come on, they really need one to check out the signage, especially before the Olympics! Imagine if Norman Foster came on opening day and saw the signs.

WOW! That foggy looks like like one of those chinese movies with kung-fu battle scenes! The airport authority should hire some kung-fu stuntmans and performed on that lake everyday.

P.S.
That foggy lake is going to be my first pics once I arrived in Beijing next year.
