Beijing is a metropolis in Northern China, and the capital of the People's Republic of China. It is one of the most populous cities in the world. Governed as a municipality under direct administration of the central government, Beijing borders Hebei Province to the north, west, south, and for a small section in the east, and Tianjing Municipality to the southeast. As the last of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Beijing has been the political center of the country for much of the past eight centuries.
Beijing has a glorious past, but is by no means stuck in the past. Standing side-by-side with old Beijing's crimson palace complexes are the city's modern buildings, the super-modern Olympic Village, with the Bird’s Nest Stadium and Water Cube; the dazzling shopping malls in Wangfujing Street and the colorful entertainment center of Houhai. The city is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks, gardens, tombs, walls and gates, and its art treasures and universities have made it a center of culture and art in China!
We Loved our vacation to Rendez-vous!
Hi Elizabeth: We LOVED our vacation and LOVED Rendez-vous. I would highly recommend it and want to go back and take some friends with us. The staff was awesome and friendly. Anything you needed they did without making you feel like you were bothering them. They had lots of activities you could do if you wanted but there was no pressure on that end. The food was great and the A La Carte was delicious! “V” and I didn’t have one complaint the entire time besides our mattress not being the most comfortable (but you can make do for 1 week). It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever had and I truly hope that I can go back on day soon! Please let me know if you have any other questions or need anything else. Thanks again Elizabeth. “L”By L from Waterloo trip to St Lucia
