Beijing - the capital of China is a remarkable city for foreigners, full of contrasts and contradictions. This diversity can be seen in the development where the old temples dating back to the imperial era are next to modern glass skyscrapers.

The size of the city and the crowds can also be a big surprise for visitors. Beijing is more than 30 times the size of Warsaw and is inhabited by almost 20 million people, i.e. more than half the population of Poland. There is also a huge flow of tourists visiting the capital - the Forbidden City lying in the centre of Beijing is visited by over 60 thousand people daily.

The cultural differences between the Chinese and Westerners may be even more surprising to foreigners. Collectivism, which is living in the community, is something quite normal both in Beijing and throughout the country. The Chinese do not approve of individualism, so fashionable and highly regarded in Europe. They also do not attach importance to privacy, because the most important thing for them is the community, not the individual. All this makes Beijing one of the most exotic cities in the world for tourists.

Moreover, it is full of historical sites, hard to find in Europe and on other continents. Chinese cuisine is full of unique flavours, completely unknown to tourists from the West. Also, cultural events and holidays that are celebrated in Beijing very pompously attract thousands of tourists who want to get to know the local customs.
