About Beijing City:
The Chinese have always had a flair for formidable displays of power and wealth, and nowhere in China is that more clear than Beijing. From the ostentatious portrait of Mao Zedong at the front gate of Tian'anmen to the sprawling Temple of Heaven Park - the capital city of the world's most populous country is a sight to behold.
Sometimes called Peking, China's second largest city (by population after Shanghai) has long been the political, cultural and educational capital of the Middle Kingdom. Many of China's most famous landmarks can be found in or around the city, including ancient wonders such as the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs and the Summer Palace. There are five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in or around Beijing city.
Home to the official national dialect (Mandarin or Putonghua), savory Peking duck and Beijing Opera, not to mention world-class shopping and nightlife, Beijing is a Chinese city like no other.
Gone are the days when every aspiring teacher wanted to go to either Beijing or Shanghai - Shenzhen is the hottest destination for today's TEFL crowd.
Just thirty-five years ago Shenzhen was nothing more than a small village adjacent to Hong Kong Island. But, Deng Xiaoping's great "Reform and Opening" brought swift change. Shenzhen became China's first Special Economic Zone, and the economy subsequently took off. Today, Shenzhen is a boomtown - the first 'Mega-City' to spring up in the Pearl River Delta. It boasts a thriving economy specializing in international trade, foreign investment, manufacturing, and financial services offered by the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
Shenzhen has loads of modern sights and places of interest, such as the Window of the World, Xichong Beach, Happy Valley Theme Park. Being a cosmopolitan city with a large expat community, there's no shortage of western restaurants, bars and nightclubs; plus, plenty of parks, temples, theaters and museums.
Shenzhen is a symbol of China's modern economy, and the birthplace of the entrepreneurial spirit that is now found even in the most remote parts of the country. If it's for three days or a year, experiencing Shenzhen should be high on everyone's 'to-do' list when staying in China.
