Beijing means “capital in the north” in Chinese. It is China’s second-largest city and became the capital of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Formerly known as Peking, Beijing is known for typical local food like the Buddhist vegetable dish called Gong De Lin, mutton hot pot, and the world-famous Peking Duck. There is a popular saying among tourists visiting Beijing that eating Peking duck while visiting the Great Wall is as important as visiting the Great Wall itself.
Raffles Beijing is located at the crossroads of the famous Chang An Avenue and the District of Wangfujing. It is a few minutes away from the legendary Forbidden City, historical Tiananmen Square, Bei Hai Park, the Silk Market, and other famous sights. Just 40 minutes from the international airport, it is also close to the Beijing railway and Wangfujing subway stations, making travel in and around Beijing very convenient.
Whether you are in Beijing for business or pleasure, Raffles Beijing is a good accommodation option if you want to lodge in style and be a part of where Beijing’s history has taken shape. There’s even an excellent Peking duck restaurant on the nearby shopping street!
