Beste reisboeken Beijing

Peking of Beijing is de hoofdstad van China. De stad is reeds sinds de stichting van de Qing-dynastie in 1644 de hoofdstad van China, met uitzondering van de periode 1928-1949, toen Nanjing de hoofdstad was.

Samen met Chongqing, Shanghai en Tianjin is Peking een van de vier Chinese stadsprovincies die dezelfde status hebben als een Chinese provincie. Peking is met een inwonertal van net geen 20 miljoen (volkstelling 2010) een van de grootste steden van de Volksrepubliek en van de gehele wereld.
