Tricycle rickshaws, stone lions, and monolithic bustling masses; Beijing is a stunner when beheld. It is city that lives, breathes, and is completely steeped in history; yet blazes with a forward looking furious development that sets an example for the rest of China. Filled with throngs of people - millions of locals, tourists and expatriates - Beijing is also truly cosmopolitan, and has long shed its closed borders for a global future. It instead thrives with humanity, and invites you to buzz with it, and take in the sights of course.

Weather:
Spring: March to May 8-19C
Summer: June to August 21-30C
Autumn: September to November 8-18C
Winter: December to February -6-4C

Shopping:
From night markets to malls, stalls to districts, much of Beijing is dedicated to shopping. This pro-retail therapy attitude permeates through the city, and offers such you a variety that youÂ’ll spend days recovering from the overdose. Haggling is recommended, while therapeutically scavenging for silks, handicrafts, clothing, antiques, electronics, jade, pearls, scarves, purses, brushes, inks, paper lanterns and memorabilia of bygone eras. Major areas for shopping are the Dong'anmen Night Market, Chaoyang, Wangfujing, Pan Jia Yuan, Liulichang, Hong Qiao, Chongwen, Xizhi Men, Xidan, Dongcheng, Xuanwu, and the areas around Tiananmen Square. In Beijing it is very encouraging to go on, and shop till you drop.

Must Do:
There's always much to do in Beijing, and residents abide by the philosophy of work hard and play harder, not forgetting to practice Tai chi. This in turn has set the leisure and entertainment industries thriving, giving you the opportunity to let loose. Whether it is sampling the amazing snacks at Dong'anmen Night Market, sipping drinks on Lotus Lane, or chilling out on quiet shores of Kunming Lake, Beijing will not let you get bored. The monolithic scale of the monuments and buildings cannot be ignored however, and taking in Beijing's sights is a must. However, pace yourselves well, as the list of these is long. Start with the Gate of Heavenly Peace, and move on to Tiananmen Square. There find the Great Hall of the People, the Museum of Chinese History and the Museum of the Chinese Revolution. Move on to check out the Zhengyang Men, Chairman Mao's Mausoleum and the formidable Arrow Tower, all of which together are known as the Front Gate. Other must see sights are the Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven Park, and Legation Street. If you have time, also try to visit the Underground City, a huge warren of bombproof tunnels now used as place for hotels, restaurants and warehouses. You can also take an hour long bus ride to the Great Wall of China at Badaling, and see one of man's seven wonders.
Chinese food is of course unforgettable, and the variety and types of the not easily procured elsewhere authentic cuisines that are available in Beijing are mind-numbing and palate titillating. Don't forget to try specialities like Beijing Roast Duck (served with thin pancakes, plum sauce, and slivers of scallions and cucumbers), and Lamb or Vegetarian Hotpot, where raw ingredients are purchased by the plate, and dipped into steaming, savoury soup until cooked. So, cycling might help lose a few pounds after over-indulgence, but you can always take the numerous and efficient taxis and tricycle rickshaws if you want a paunch as a souvenir.

Must Do:
Shanghai offers everyone something, more than just the plethora of sights and abundance of shops. Shanghai's entertainment scene is flourishing, and is constantly nurtured by the large amounts of disposable capital in the area. The city is up early, and sleeps late, offering you a varied and colourful nightlife and food scene. Areas such as the Bund, Nanjing Dong Lu, and French Concession are must visits for this reason. Shanghai is split in two by the Huangpu River, with the older town on the west bank known as Puxi and the brash new development on the east side being Pudong. Wake up early, and see hordes of Tai-chi practitioners on the Bund, quietly and gracefully flowing. Then observe the many temples, gardens, and the striking architecture of new Shanghai, and visit Yuyuan Gardens, Longhua Temple, Jade Buddha Temple, and Fuxing Road. Take the elevator to the top of Oriental Pearl TV Tower, which the tallest TV tower in Asia, with a height of 468 meters. The view is truly spectacular.
Shanghai offers a dazzling array of food and provides an exciting opportunity for cuisine exploration. Shanghainese cuisine is one of the lesser-known types of Chinese food, and is generally characterized as sweet and oily. Seafood predominates, and the usual style of preparation is steaming. Some Shanghainese dishes to look out for are: Xiao Long Baozi (small steamed dumplings full of tasty broth and a dab of meat), Dazha Xie (hairy crabs), Xiefen Shizitou (pork meatballs containing crab meat), and Zui Ji (drunken chicken). Vegetarians should not miss Vegetarian Life Style the restaurant, on Fengxian Road and Songshan Road, where you can experience affordable and organic vegetarian food.

Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
China officially name as the People's Republic of China (PRC) is the most populous state in the world, with over 1.3 billion citizens. Located in East Asia, the country covers approximately 9.6 million square kilometers (3.7 million square miles). It is the world's second-largest country by land area, and the third- or fourth-largest in total area, depending on the definition of total area.

The People's Republic of China is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party of China (CPC). The PRC exercises jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four directly controlled municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Chongqing), and two mostly self-governing special administrative regions (SARs), Hong Kong and Macau. Its capital city is Beijing.

n recent decades, China has suffered from severe environmental deterioration and pollution. While regulations such as the 1979 Environmental Protection Law are fairly stringent, enforcement of them is poor, as local communities and government officials in favour of rapid economic development frequently disregard them.

Environmental campaigners such as Ma Jun have warned of the danger that water pollution poses to Chinese society. According to the Chinese Ministry of Water Resources, roughly 300 million Chinese do not have access to safe drinking water. According to Vice Minister for Water Resources Jiao Yong, 40% of China’s rivers had been polluted by industrial and agricultural waste by late 2011. This crisis is compounded by the perennial problem of water shortages, with 400 out of 600 surveyed Chinese cities reportedly short of drinking water.

The People's Republic of China has administrative control over 22 provinces, and considers Taiwan to be its 23rd province, although Taiwan is currently governed by the Republic of China, which disputes the PRC's claim. China also has five autonomous regions, each with a designated minority group; four municipalities; and two Special Administrative Regions, which enjoy a degree of political autonomy. These 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, and four municipalities can be collectively referred to as "mainland China", a term which usually excludes the Special Autonomous Regions of Hong Kong and Macau.

RELIGION:
China is a country with a great diversity of religious beliefs. The main religions are Buddhism, Taoism, Islam, Catholicism and Protestantism. Citizens of China may freely choose and express their religious beliefs, and make clear their religious affiliations. According to incomplete statistics, there are over 100 million followers of various religious faiths, more than 85,000 sites for religious activities, some 300,000 clergy and over 3,000 religious organizations throughout China. In addition, there are 74 religious schools and colleges run by religious organizations for training clerical personnel.

-Buddhism has a history of 2,000 years in China. Currently China has 13,000-some Buddhist temples and about 200,000 Buddhist monks and nuns. Among them are 120,000 lamas and nuns, more than 1,700 Living Buddhas, and 3,000-some temples of Tibetan Buddhism and nearly 10,000 Bhiksu and senior monks and more than 1,600 temples of Pali Buddhism.

Islam was introduced into China in the seventh century. Nowadays in China there are ten national minorities, including the Hui and Uygur, with a total population of 18 million, whose faith is Islam. 40,000 Imams and Akhunds serve their 30,000-odd mosques.

Catholicism was introduced into China intermittently in the seventh century, but it had not spread widely until after the Opium War in 1840. At present, China has four million Catholics, 4,000 clergy and more than 4,600 churches and meeting houses.

Protestantism was first brought to China in the early 19th century and spread widely after the Opium War. There are about 10 million Protestants, more than 18,000 clergy, more than 12,000 churches and 25,000-some meeting places throughout China.

China has the following national religious organizations: Buddhist Association of China, Taoist Association of China, Islamic Association of China, Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association, Chinese Catholic Bishops' College, Three-Self Patriotic Movement Committee of the Protestant Churches of China, and China Christian Council.

CULTURE:
Chinese culture is one of the world's oldest and most complex. The area in which the culture is dominant covers a large geographical region in eastern Asia with customs and traditions varying greatly between towns, cities and provinces. An important component of Chinese culture includes literature, music, visual arts, martial arts, cuisine, etc.

CLIMATE:
China's climate varies from bitter cold in winter to unbearable heat in summer.
The Yangtze River serves as China's official dividing line between north and south. Given the size and varied landscape of the country, there is no one time in the year when weather is ideal in every part of China. Of course, the warmest areas in winter are to be found in the South and Southwest, such as Sichuan, Banna in Yunnan, and Hainan Island. In summer the coolest spots are in the far northeast.

China has a climate dominated by dry seasons and wet monsoons, which leads to clear temperature differences in winter and summer. In winter, northern winds coming from high latitude areas are cold and dry; in summer, southern winds from sea areas at lower latitude are warm and moist.

China climates differ from region to region because of the country's extensive and complex topography. In the south of the Nanling Mountains, rains are prolific and the temperature is high all year round. In the Yangtze and Huaihe river valleys in the central part of China, there are four distinctive seasons.

In northeast China, summer is short but there is much sunshine, while winter is long and cold. Precipitation is limited in northwest China where it is cold in winter and hot in summer. In southwest China of low latitudes, the land is elevated high, and has characteristically vertical seasonal zones.

There's not really andideal’ time to visit the country, so use the following information as a rough guide to avoid temperature extremes.
North
Northern winters, from December to March, can be extremely cold. Beijing may experience temperature of -20C at night, dry and no sun. Further north, -40C are not uncommon, and you'll see the curious sight of sand dunes covered in snow.
During the summer, from May to August, temperatures in Beijing can hit 38C (100F), coinciding with the rainy season for the city.
The best time for visiting the north is spring and autumn. Daytime temperatures range from 20C to 30C (68F to 86F) and drop a lot at night. Precipitation is 6370cm (25-28 inches) per year.
Central
The Yangtze River valley has long and humid summer with high temperatures from April to October. The city of Wuhan, Chongqing and Nanjing on the Yangtze are China's three famous 'furnaces'.
Winters there, with temperatures dropping well below freezing, can be as cold as in Beijing, particularly as there is no heating in public buildings to the south of the Yangtze River.
It can also be wet and miserable at any time apart from summer. Since it is impossible to choose an ideal time to visit, spring and autumn are probably best. Precipitation averages around 76 cm (30 inches) per year.
South
Near Guangzhou, the summer is a season of typhoons between July and September. Temperatures can rise to around 38C. Winters are short, between January and March. It's not as cold as in the north, but you'd better bring warm clothes with you while visiting.
Autumn and spring can be good times to visit, with day temperatures in the 20C to 25C (68F to 75F) range. Sometimes, it can be miserably wet and cold, with rain or drizzle. Precipitation averages 76 cm (30 inches) per year.
Northwest
It gets hot in summer, dry and sunny. The desert regions can be scorching in the daytime. Turphan, which sits in a depression 150m below sea level, is referred to as the 'hottest place in China' with maximums of around 47C.
In winter this region is as severely cold as the rest of northern China. Temperatures in Turphan during Winter are only slightly more favorable to human existence.
This area of China climate experiences little rain, and as a consequence, the air is very dry. Summers, however, can exceed 40C, while winters may drop to -10C. Precipitation averages less than 10 cm (4 inches) per year.
Tibet
Undoubtedly, Tibet is one of the harshest places for human existence. It is cool in summer but freezing cold in winter. In Lhasa, the mildest city in Tibet, temperature may exceed 29C in summer while plummeting to -16C in winter!
Sun radiation is extremely strong in Tibet. The sunlight in Lhasa is so intense that the city is called Sunlight City. The thin air can neither block off nor retain heat so that the temperature extremes can be met in daytime and the same night respectively in Tibet. However it is not impossible to visit the holy snow land. April to October is the best time to visit Tibet, out of the coldest months, which are from December to February usually.
The average temperature in north Tibet is subzero and winter arrives in October until the following May or June. July and August are the best time to visit the area, enjoying warm temperature, intense sunshine, beautiful scenery and festive events.
May, June and September is the tourist season in east Tibet. In winter, roads are all blocked by heavy snow. Landslides and rock falls frequently occur, which will make travel difficult.
South Tibet is balmy during May to October. During the period, there are also great festive events held. Hence it is the best time to visit Lhasa, Shigatse and Nyingchi.
Most annual rainfall comes in the rainy season that starts from June to September. Usually it rains at night in Lhasa, Shigatse and Chamdo area. The rainfall may block roads and make travel difficult but the scenery at the time will be the best. From November to the coming May, the wind blows often.

LANGUAGE:
The official language of the PRC is "Putonghua", a literal translation of which is "common speech". This is known in English as Mandarin Chinese. However, to think that all Chinese people speak it somewhat misrepresents the true picture. According to Chinese government figures, only 53% of the population speaks Putonghua. Also, Ethnologue lists more than 200 languages in use in China and there are countless local dialects. This can be a problem, not only for the poor foreigners struggling to communicate, but also for the Chinese. It not unusual to see two Chinese struggling to understand each other.

The saving grace is that the majority of these dialects have a common written form. The pronunciation of any character can be completely different in say, Beijing from that in Guangzhou (where Cantonese is the dominant language), but the character looks the same. For that reason, nearly all television programmers are subtitled and the Chinese often communicate by passing notes. This can be doubly frustrating for us. After struggling to make himself understood verbally, the new Chinese friend you have just met on the train will hand you a note in a Chinese scrawl, utterly sure that he has solved the problem.

That said, the majority of people you meet will speak or understand Putonghua. It really is worth making the effort to learn even a little. You will gain a much better insight to the lives of Chinese people.

For teachers, another, often overlooked, advantage to learning even a little Chinese is that it can give you a much better understanding of the difficulties your students have with English and therefore improve your teaching. For example, Chinese does not have a tense system like English, relying on time adverbs much of the time. So, when your students say, "I tomorrow go Beijing", they are using Chinese grammar with English vocabulary. I spent some time teaching a group of students who had between them a number of different 'mother tongues'. After a while, I was able to identify which were which by the mistakes they made in English pronunciation. The differing languages each had different interference patterns.
