Beijing—Must First See Place in China
If one of my foreign friends is coming to China, no doubt, I will take him to Beijing first. The reasons are as following:
First, Beijing is the capital of China, an energetic city with a long history. Beijing is a super large distribution center, high-quality goods across the country will appear here, so you can easily find whatever you like. Second, there are a great number of tourist attractions and historic sites in Beijing, such as Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and Summer Palace. What is more, some of these interesting places are within walking distance, so you can visit several scenic spots by spending a relatively less time. Third, the traffic in Beijing is very convenient and inexpensive. You can take bus or subway train to anywhere you want to go.
