Beijing is China's political, cultural, science and education centre
as well as a key
transportation hub with direct flights to most major cities in the
world. Beijing has
served as the capital of the country for more than 800 years. The city
has many places of
historic interest and scenic beauty. Beijing became the focus of world
attention in 2008
when it hosted the Olympics. The games were a symbol of both China's
progress and China's
tradition with high-class and eye-catching facilities and spectacular
ceremonies. People
from all around the world were welcomed to travel to Beijing under the
slogan "One World,
One Dream".
