ABOUT Beijing:

Beijing, only eclipsed by Shanghai in terms of size, is not only the political center of China - a position held for more than 800 years - it also plays an important role in the nation's cultural, economic, scientific, and academic life. In the northwest of the North China Plain, not far from the western slopes of the Yanshan mountains, Beijing - still often referred to as Peking - is a great place from which to explore this dynamic country due to its dense network of road, rail, and airline connections with other major cities. Beijing itself has no shortage of wonderful sightseeing opportunities and is home to some of the country's best-known tourist attractions, including a section of the famous Great Wall of China. Among the city's many historical and cultural monuments are the Imperial Palace, Beihai Park, Coal Hill Park, and the Heavenly Temple, most of them within the well preserved historic city center. Other highlights include the mammoth Tian'anmen Square, numerous important temples, and new construction brought about by the city's increased prosperity and major events such as the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
