China Beijing Hotel Guide, Beijing Hotels Resorts Reservation, Travel Service
As the proud capital of modern China, Beijing is fast becoming a popular and fashionable tourist destination. And for good reason too. Beijing is not only the modern political, cultural and educational center of China, but holds the biggest collection of ancient sites and relics in the nation.
Beijing has been at the center of China and the heart and soul of politics and society for over 5000 years. If the pace of change in the city today is anything to judge by, Beijing is determined to stay at the forefront of Chinese civilization.
A world-renowned ancient cultural city, Beijing is a flourishing metropolis, boasting many scenic spots and historical monuments, precious artifacts and world-famous architectural wonders, such as the Forbidden City, which was the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The Summer Palace, a summer resort for the Qing court, sitting within the largest Chinese-style garden in existence. The Great Wall, with a history of over 2000 years, being one of the most amazing feats of human labor ?the only man-made construction on earth visible from outer space. The Ming Tombs, the mauseloums of 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty. The Temple of Heaven, where the Ming and Qing emperors prayed for good harvests. The Tiananmen Square, located in the heart of the capital, known as one of the largest city squares in the world.
After a day's exploration of the city,
nighttime can hold other surprises for you. These can vary from
traditional performances such as the Beijing Opera, acrobatics and
martial arts to modern ones including concerts, ballroom dancing, pubs
and clubs. Each and every one has its enchantment for the tourist. No
description of our capital city is complete without mention of the
friendly people who throng the streets. Everywhere you will encounter
smiling faces and a welcome, especially from the children who love to
say 'Hello!" All these things add up to make your visit a true
cultural experience of a lifetime.
