City Information

 

Beijing is located in the northeastern corner of China. The city limits of Beijing extend some 80km (50mi), including the urban and the suburban areas and the nine counties under its administration - in other words, it's huge. Though it may not appear so in the shambles of arrival, Beijing is a place of very orderly design. Long, straight boulevards and avenues are crisscrossed by a network of lanes. Places of interest are either very easy to find if they are on the avenues, or impossible to find if they're buried down the hutongs (narrow alleys).

Beijing is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China (the other three being Nanjing, Luoyang and Xi'an (Chang'an)). Beijing has long history since Yuan Dynasty until the present time. In B.E. 1964 (1421), Yongle Emperor made new city planning and constructed new city and moved the government base for a temporary period of time from Nanjing to Peijing or Beijing.

Beijing is the second largest city in China (after Shanghai) and now the 17th largest city in the world.
