City Guide, Beijing
Beijing sits between two rivers that flow out of the hills and onto the North China Plain, which at this location is a large alluvial fan. The city is located some 100 miles (160 kilometers) from the gulf known as Bo Hai, an arm of the Yellow Sea, or Huang Hai.
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 Forbidden City, the most magnificent palace in China; Ming Tombs, an imperial tomb cluster for thirteen emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644); Great Wall, one of the seven wonders of the world; Temple of Heaven, the worshipping site for the emperors; Summer Palace, the grandest imperial garden in China; Sacred Way, a divine road reflecting the pomp and dignity of emperors; Tiananmen Square, The largest square in the world; Lama Temple, a noted temple dedicated to Tibetan Buddhism; Beihai Park, a centuries-old park with marvelous scenery; Hutong, a carrier and mirror of Beijing folk culture.
Culture and entertainment
Undoubtedly, Beijing is the cultural center of China. Beijing has endowed too many connotations for culture. Beijing is just like the thickest encyclopedia, containing the cultural heritage of 5,000 history of China, absorbing the exploding knowledge of the current society, and foretelling the scenarios of the future development.
Beijing offers a wide variety of entertainment. Visitors can enjoy the traditional Chinese performances of Beijing Opera, Chinese Drama and acrobatics staged at theaters and teahouses or stop off a private Karaoke TV room to sing, or at a bar for a drink.

Food and drink
While dining in Beijing, even the most experienced of Beijing visitors will get tantalized. The reason is that the city is filled with so many delicacies all from through the country that it is too difficult to make a decision. As the capital of China, Beijing has developed its own culinary identity- Beijing Cuisine.
Join the throngs at Hongqiao Market to haggle for pearls, high-tech gadgets and brilliantly colored silks or tailor-made clothes at Ya Show Market. The mood is more up market in designer-lined Wangfujing, where the Arts & Crafts World Mansion stocks Chinese crafts from jade to intricate wood carvings. Bordering the hutongs and centered on remodeled Qing dynasty siheyuan courtyard houses, Liulichang Xi Jie is an atmospheric street to pause for tea and shop for antiques, name chops and calligraphy brushes.
