Our host Jin Ye tours us around the best places to eat, drink, shop, and play in Beijing. Beijing is a big city and it's often said that if you've never been to this city then you've never really been to China. To make the most out of your stay in Beijing, get a Smart Card which you will use to pay for rides on the subway, city buses, some taxis (taxis with the sign of ‘Welcome to Use IC Card’) and the airport express train. One of the most stunning landmarks in China is The Great Wall which was recognized as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. It was continuously built from the 3rd century BC to the 17th century AD on the northern ...
BEIJING — A new mega-sized airport being built in China could shift the balance of power in the country's airline industry. Beijing's new 6-pier, radial-shaped airport was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. It will cover an area of 313,000sqm. Flag carrier Air China dominates the current Beijing airport. Its regional rivals China Eastern Airlines control Shanghai, while China Southern Airlines hold Guangzhou. The new airport will allow China Eastern and China Southern a 40 percent share of passengers each, which may encourage the two provincial airlines to open lucrative new North American routes, Bloomberg reported. "There are demands to add hundreds of flights in Beijing every day that get refused because we're running out of resources," Liu Xuesong, general manager of Capital Airpo...

認識北京故宮紫禁城 Inside the Forbidden City 故宮，舊稱紫禁城，位於北京中軸線的中心，是明清兩個朝代二十四位皇帝的皇宮，佔地面積72萬平方米，建築面積約15萬平方米。明成祖朱棣永樂四年（1406年）開始營建，永樂十八年（1420年）落成。現為故宮博物院的所在地。 北京故宮南北長961米，東西寬753米，面積約為725000平方米。四周為寬52米的護城河。城牆高12米，底濃10米，頂濃6米至7米，由52米寬的護城河保護。有四門，正南為午門，東為東華門，西為西華門，北為玄武門（神武門）。現玄武門為故宮博物院正門。城牆高9.9米厚8.26米。 明朝初期有殿宇1630餘座，清朝乾隆時期有殿宇1800餘座，現存殿宇約2631座；紫禁城各宮殿樣式圖細畫至「寸」，自康熙起雷氏家族代代測量、繪製典藏到民國初年。相傳故宮共有9999.5座屋，實際據1973年專家現場測量故宮有大小院落90多座，房屋有980座，共計8704間。而此「間」並非現今房間之概念，此處「間」指四根房柱所形成的空間。 故宮在辛亥革命之前被稱為「紫禁城」。它的名字來自「紫微星垣」，中國古代星像學家把天上的星星分為三垣，四象，二十八星宿等。其中三垣指紫微星垣，太微星垣和天市星垣。紫微星垣居於正中，據傳皇天上帝的居所（紫宮）就在紫微星垣中，人間皇帝自稱「天子」便仿皇天上帝居所的名字用其「紫」字為紫禁城。故宮是以黃瓦、紅牆、金飾、白石構成的建築群。其中黃色琉璃瓦是天子的象徵。 紫禁城最初的建設投入工匠23萬人，民工士兵上百萬，前後延續了15年之久。 「紫禁城」這個名稱跟中國古代哲學與天文學有關。「紫」是指古代天文學中三垣中的紫微星垣，意思是正中央，也代表著紫禁城位處中國乃至世界的中央地位。

President Moon Jae-In was welcomed in the Great Hall of the People by leader Xi Jinping. Moons says he wishes to strengthen ties - and is calling for a 'new era' in the relationship based on trust and friendship. It is their first meeting since the US Secretary of State opened the door to unconditional talks with North Korea. It was also a chance to defuse Chinese tension surrounding the deployment of a US missile defence system in the south. Warmer relations between the neighbours could play a crucial role in organising talks with the north. Can South Korea and China help bring Pyongyang to the negotiating table? Presenter: Laura Kyle. Guests: Victor Gao - Chairman of the China Energy Security Institute. Se-Woong Koo - Political commentator and publisher of Korea Expose. Aidan...
