Beijing Hotel Guide & Local Info
Beijing is the capitol of the People’s Republic of China and it is also the nation’s political, economic, cultural, educational and international trade and communication center. This sprawling city is located in northern China, near the port city of Tianjin and surrounded partially by Hebei Province. As a multi-faceted city, Beijing also serves as the most important transportation hub and port of entry throughout all of China.
Formerly known as Peking, Beijing is regarded as one of the six ancient cities in China. The city has long been the heart and soul of politics and society throughout its tumultuous history, and as a result of more relaxed travel restrictions it has grown to become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
From Jan. 1, 2013, passport holders of 45 countries and regions including USA, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, etc. are granted a visa-free stay of up to 72 hours when taking an international transfer via Beijing Capital Airport.
