   This amazing city is the capital of the People’s Republic of China, which boasts an extensive history, rich
   cultural heritage, hospitable people, and an abundance of amazing places to visit. The impressive
   Tiananmen Square where Mao proclaimed the People’s Republic in 1949 dominates the centre of the city.
   The square also houses the Imperial Palace – the ancient Forbidden City with its 10 metre high walls,
   moat and more than 9000 rooms.
   Other features of this ancient city are the Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao, Monument of the People’s
   Heroes, Museum of Chinese History & Museum of the Revolution. No visit, of course, would be complete
   without seeing & walking on the famous Great Wall (UNESCO – endorsed world cultural heritage site)
   and seeing the Ming Tombs. It has long been regarded as one of the world’s most famous historic and
   cultural cities.
