Beijing

China

The People's Republic of China is a huge country with an immense population.

Travel opportunities abound in the home of one of the world's oldest civilizations.

There are a number of large, famous cities in China, such as Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Guilin, and Shanghai, as well as famous landmarks and tourist attractions like the Great Wall of China, the Silk Road, Tibet, and Hainan Island.

APNIC 28 will be held in Beijing, China. Beijing literally means "Northern Capital", and it has been the nation's capital a number of times throughout history, but in modern times since 1949.

While you are there, you will probably want to see the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and the Temple of Heaven, among many other attractions.

You can haggle at the local markets, trek about the busy streets on a bicycle, or indulge your taste for luxuries at the shopping centres on Wangfujing street. Beijing is the political and cultural centre of China, and offers a wide variety of choices of things to do, see, and eat. Not to mention, it is home to one of China's most famous dishes: Peking Duck!

How to get to there

The national airline is Air China; however, there are many other major airlines that fly to Beijing Capital International Airport.
