Beijing Travel Guide : A City Intoxicated by the Spirit of Change. Hrsg.: Turtle Travel Edition
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. Beijing is the capital of the most populous country in the world, China, and its second largest city after Shanghai. It was the seat of the Ming and Qing dynasty emperors until the formation of a republic in 1911. Beijing is the political, educational and cultural center of the country and as such it is rich in historical sites and important government and cultural institutions. The city is well known for its flatness and regular construction. There are only three hills to be found within the city limits (in Jingshan Park to the north of the famous Forbidden City). No other city in China can match the extraordinary historical panorama on display in B ij ng. At its heart is the magnificent Forbidden City, a royal palace on a scale that beggars belief. B ij ng is also home to sublime temples that aspire to cosmological perfection. This book offers information on Beijing and its most notable places.
