Capital of the People’s Republic of China, Beijing is under the direct administration of the Central Government and is the center of politics, culture, and international exchange.
Proposing the slogan \"One World, One Dream\", Beijing has successfully hosted the 2008 Olympics, which also give the world an opportunity to learn better about the city.

Famous for its long history and splendid culture, the city is undergoing big changes in the drive for modernization. In 1986, some of the city’s most scenic destinations were chosen as the Sixteen Sights of Beijing, and include Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall at Badaling and Mutianyu, Beihai Park, the Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, Fragrant Hill, Shidu Scenic Spot, Relics of Primitive at Zhoukoudian, Longqing Gorge, Big Bell Temple, White Dragon Pond, Ming Tombs, Lugou Bridge and the Grand View Garden. While those old sights are still very attractive, there are some newly-developed sights also worth going. Traditionally an area of hutongs (alleys), Houhai has now become an entertainment hub full of restaurants, cafes and bars. The lakeside setting and the glow of lights over the water make it an increasingly popular area to visit at night. A hutong trip will also definitely make your journey unforgettable.
Although traffic can be dense at times, navigating through the city is easy, whether by bus, taxi or metro. Outside rush hour, taxis are good value although it is advisable to have your destination written down in Mandarin to avoid confusion.

Beijing\'s winters are cold and dry with occasional snow and average temperatures reach well below zero in January, when the city is at its most picturesque. Temperatures peak in July and the summers are hot and sunny with plenty of rain. Autumn is probably the most pleasant season to visit the city.
