Beijing

Beijing

Beijing is a city of contrasts, both modern and ancient, a huge metropolis spreading over 16,800 square kilometres and with a population of 13 million people. Modern Beijing is truly astounding and the last five years have seen unprecedented growth with new office blocks, flats and ring roads and even traffic jams springing up all over the capital. Ancient Beijing is still there for you to see and this famous capital has a history dating back more than 3,000 years. At various times it has been the capital of the Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties whose rise and fall has left behind a host of cultural relics and ruins. The city prides itself on having scores of splendid temples, palaces, monuments and old streets and courtyards (hutongs).
