Beijing is the capital city of China and located in the north-eastern part of China. China is the 4th largest country after Russia, Canada and the United States. It is located in Eastern Asia, bordering the East China Sea, Korea Bay, Yellow Sea, and South China Sea, between North Korea and Vietnam. The city has a varied climate with hot, humid summers and temperatures in the mid-high 20s/low 30s and cold, windy winters with temperatures down to about 3-4 degrees. There is pollution - much of it from surrounding cities and provinces though US$17 billion was spent cleaning up the city's air prior to the 2008 Olympics. Admittedly some of the measures were temporary but China has committed to reducing the amount of coal burned by 2.6 million tonnes by 2017 and since 2012 has been converting coal power stations to natural gas power station. The city and surrounds are dripping in culture and there are too many attractions to mention but many, many well-known such as the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, Confucius Temple, Beijing Zoo and many other museums, galleries, nature reserves, sporting venues and world heritage sites such as the Great Wall of China. There are of course plenty of other ways to spend your time in Beijing with its flourishing nightlife - courtesy of the city's many bars and clubs - local and national cuisine to be sampled in restaurants and from street food stalls and, of course, shopping to be done. Beijing is well connected by road, rail and air and its Beijing Capital international Airport is the 2nd busiest in the world.
