Location Overview:

Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium.

The Beijing seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather and temperatures, and surprising splashes of colours. Beijing today is a city of vast contrasts - the new intermingles with the old, and the whole city is developing rapidly.
