Beijing (called Peking) is the capital of the People's Republic of China. It is located on the North China Plain about 150 kilometers west of the Bohai Sea. Beijing borders Hebei Province to its three sides - the north, west and south. To the southeast it borders Tianjin Municipality. Beijing, the political, educational and cultural centre of modern China, was the capital of the six ancient cities in China. Beijing is the second largest city and the one of the four municipalities under the jurisdiction of the central government in China.

Beijing is a city with more than 3,000 years of recorded history and a centuries-old glorious evolution. And now, more than 140 foreign embassies are located. It is an international exchange center. When visiting this city, you can virtually sense its collision between Chinese and Western culture that encourages feelings of deep respect for this city which holds so many stories that date back to its origins.

Long history has left numerous famous historical sites in Beijing, and it is the reason to as the China's number one city for tourists, the majority of them from China itself. It offers a staggering array of attractions, ancient and modern, including the grand meandering Great Wall, the majestic Tiananmen Square, the resplendent Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Panda zoo, Olympic Stadiums--the Water Cube, The Temple of Confucius, Beihai Park and the Bird's Nest and so on. Except those buildings, hutong, quadrangle, defensive wall, old city gate and Beijing Opera are the prime indicators that reveal its historical beauty and stories affording much further consideration.

Beijing is located in East Asia, so the climate has obvious regional differences. Autumn called the 'golden season' is the best season of the year in Beijing because of pleasant weather with clear sky and the best air quality. And also, autumn is the best traveling time to visit Beijing, specifically in September and October. In addition, May is another good choice. Holiday China Tour await your coming.
