China is a mix of tradition and modernity, scientific innovation and spiritual belief, historical significance and cultural progression. With more than one billion people and extending an area of almost four million square miles, it is the world's most populated country and home to one of the world's oldest continuous civilizations. China has focused on a market-oriented economic development, helping the nation emerge as a major player in the global economy.

Beijing, the capital of the country, is located at the northern tip of the North China Plain and is the second largest city in the country with a population of 20 million. Combining rich history and bustling metropolis, Beijing is one of few cities that has served as a political, diplomatic and cultural center for a nation as large as China for so long. The city is home to some of the world's most famous historical sites, like the expansive Great Wall and the splendid Forbidden City.
