I have 8 hours in Beijing. What should I do?

In about a week and a half, I'll be heading out to Nepal for a short trip. During that trip, I have an 8 hour layover in Beijing. My flight arrives at 5:40am, and I leave at 1:45pm. That leaves a few hours in the mid to late morning range to do.....something. I'd rather not stay at the airport for that time. What would you do with this much time? Without knowing much, other than having a basic idea about my ability to spend a bit of time in Beijing as I am connecting through, I figured I might catch a taxi to Tiananmen Square, or something like that.
Thougths? Ideas? Suggestions? If you have experience on a similar trip, and can give me a sense of how long it will take me to exit the airport, and how long it will take me to get back in, that would be great. All hints and tips are welcome!
Thanks in advance....
