Beijing – China – Beijing Video

Beijing is a metropolis in northern China and the capital of the People’s Republic of China. Governed as a municipality under direct administration of the central government, Beijing borders Hebei Province to the north, west, south, and for a small section in the east, and Tianjin Municipality to the southeast. Beijing is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Beijing is divided into 16 urban and suburban districts and two rural counties. Beijing is a major transportation hub, with dozens of railways, roads and motorways passing through the city. It is also the destination of many international flights arriving in China. Beijing is recognized as the political, educational, and cultural center of the People’s Republic of China, while Shanghai and Hong Kong predominate in economic fields.The city hosted the 2008 Olympic Games. Few cities in the world besides Beijing have served as the political and cultural centre of an area as immense as China for so long. The Encyclopædia Britannica describes it as “one of the world’s great cities,” and declares that the city has been an integral part of Chinas history for centuries; there is scarcely a major building of any age in Beijing that doesn’t have at least some national historical significance. Beijing is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, and huge stone walls and gates. Its art treasures and universities have long made the city a centre of culture and art in China.

  8. @is2pot well it also means that there’s more people now who can afford to use these facilities. More office buildings mean that more people are transferring from the cheap labor industry to the service industry. unless those buildings are all empty O_O

  9. @carcassh ok? lets look at the options. china could either continue its course of progress. or become democratic, fall apart into smaller chunks and loose its status as a second superpower and suffer a standstill in economic development for a decade. let me remind you that russia’s problems of corruption and poor living conditions have not improved much after becoming democratic. Russia still ranks #1 internationally as the most corrupt country. the world’s most corrupt country is democratic.

  10. It is a korean music you just chose for backsong, what a pity.

    it’s means you don’t know to much about the city or country.

    Beijing is pretending for foreign people,not for local people.
    we don’t have good life..just slaves here.
    so come here and gave government money to rule us,
    is all you foreigners done,doing and to do.

  16. @is2pot it does take time for the whole society besides its economy to develop, but you have to admit that China is on the way trying to figure out its own version of modernization. btw I like Beijing a lot. It’s a city in which the oldest tradition and stay with the advance guard peacefully.
