♦ About Beijing
Beijing is the modern capital city of the People’s Republic of China as well as a well known city in the ancient world. It has over 3000 years of history and has been the capital city of five dynasties. This has made Beijing famous for the depth in culture and richness in tourist resources. No visitor to China today wants to miss visiting the Forbidden City, the largest royal palace in the world, the Summer Palace, where the imperial family escaped the summer heat, the Temple of Heaven, or the Great Wall. There are more than 200 major sightseeing spots open to tourists and over 7300 cultural and historical scenes.
