The 2016 iGeo - Beijing, China

Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China and one of the most populous cities in the world. Its population in 2013 was 21,150,000. The city contains some of the world’s most photographed sites including the Tiananmen Gate, The Beijing National Stadium, The Temple of Heaven and the National Grand Theatre.

The city's history dates back three millennia. As the last of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Beijing has been the political centre of the country for much of the past eight centuries. The city is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks and gardens, tombs, walls and gates,] and its art treasures and universities have made it a centre of culture and art in China.
