What the Westerns call Peking is in fact, according to its Chinese correct name, Beijing. Bei means north and Jing, capital. Beijing is therefore, the Northern Capital. Today, Beijing is the Capital City of China and the center of the Chinese political power. Beijing is also famous of its endless list of attractions, historical and touristic spots and must-see sites and places. To mention just a few of them: the Forbidden City, known, nowadays as the Imperial Palace Museum, the Temple of Heaven, the Lama Temple, the Templeof Earth, The Tiananmen Square and Chairman Mao Mausoleum, the Bell Tower, the Drum Tower, the Hutongs or Beijing´s ancient living houses and quarters, the millenary Niujie Mosque or the oldest church in Beijing, the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, built originally in 1605.

Or maybe you prefer to start by such must-see places as the Imperial Summer Palace, the Beijing Zoo with its Panda community, the Ming Tombs, or maybe you want to become a Hero! Then you certainly have heard what Chairman Mao said “You are not a hero until you climb the Great Wall”. Once a Hero, you have to experience the essences of Beijing: Beijing Opera and Beijing Duck in duck specialized restaurant, etc. And, you will yet have to go again and again back to Beijing to see more of Beijing´s most recent wonders as the Bird Nest, built especially for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Water Cube, the National Grand Theater, and to try the most recent miracle of Beijing represented in its new underground network etc.
Luoyang is with Beijing, Nanjing and Xi´an one of the four major or great historical capitals of ancient China. Its name derives from “Luo” by reference to the Luo River, which flows from west to east and “Yang”, whose one of the meanings is sun. That is to mean the sunny side of Luo River, since the city is located at the north and sunny side of the river.
Like its neighbor Xi´an, Luoyang served in different periods as a capital city for up to 13 dynasties over a total of 1 500 years. Luoyang is located at the crossroad between Henan Province´s capital Zhengzhou to the east and Xian to the west. Luoyang has a population of over six and a half Million and is getting more and more importance as a prefecture-level Metropolis in Henan province.
Rich of its long History legacy, Luoyang is proud of its cultural heritage and attracts tourists from China and abroad. Like Xian, Luoyang has an innumerable historical sites and attractions to offer to its visitors. At the top of them is the Longmen Grottoes, located at the south outskirts of the city, the Shaolin Temple, one of the cradles of the martial arts. Also outside Luoyang a must-see is without doubt the Longtan Valley or the Dragon Lake Valley. Backing to the downtown you cannot miss the must-see site, the White Horse Temple. In the downtown, you have yet to pay a visit to the Guanlin Temple, the Luoyang Museum, the Emperor Carriage Museum, the Peony Garden, etc.
Luoyang has also its notorious festivals, and, in particular, two of them attract tourists worldwide. The peony is the national flower of Luoyang and has its own garden and park, but it has also its own International Peony Festival, held each year in April-May. The second major festival in Luoyang is Luoyang Heluo Culture Tourism Festival, held yearly in September.
