Destination

The bustling capital city of Beijing is the nation's political, educational, and cultural center. It has more universities and research institutes than any other city in China, making it also the intellectual hub of the country. Beijing's 3000 years of history is reflected in its art, architecture, music, and traditions. Among its innumerable attractions are the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, and the nearby Great Wall. While the city is replete with historical treasures, modern Beijing boasts lively concert halls, night clubs, ritzy and down-home restaurants, museums, and theater. The entire city is still buzzing from the excitement of hosting the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Massive construction projects have transformed the city over the last several years. The Beijing Subway system is undergoing expansion that will more than double its original capacity. The Olympics were celebrated from August 8 to August 24, 2008 with the opening ceremony commencing at 08:08:08 pm at the Beijing National Stadium. While most events took place in Beijing, several events were also located in Qingdao, Hong Kong, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Qinhuangdao. Spring 2008 Alliance students had the chance to tour some of the Olympic venues and learn about the city's preparations for the games. Summer 2008 Alliance students in Beijing participated in a specially-designed Olympic program.
