Beijing is the creative center of China. It is also its cultural heart and soul.
It is full of artists, creatives, and misfits who don't quite fit in anywhere else in China.
It is also home to thriving manufacturing, legal, pharmaceutical, and tech industries.
In fact, Beijing is home to Zhongguancun, which is commonly referred to as Beijing's Silicon Valley.
But while it is China's tech center, Beijing isn't always looking to the future.
If you want to get in touch with China's 5,000 years of history, this is a wonderful city to do so in, whether by enjoying a performance of traditional Beijing Opera or traveling through one of Beijing's many winding hutongs (alleys).
If you want to get a glimpse into the five thousand years of history and culture that China offers, Beijing could be a great place.
Just don't forget to grab some Beijing KaoYa (Beijing roast duck).
Beijing is certainly a less international city than Shanghai is, and can thus be a great environment to hone one's linguistic skills in.
It also doesn't hurt that the Beijing Mandarin accent is the standard for modern Chinese in mainland China.
