Few cities in the world besides Beijing have served as the political and cultural centre of an area as immense as China for so long. It is described as "One of the world's great cities". The city has been an integral part of China’s history over the past eight centuries, and nearly every major building of any age in Beijing has at least some national historical significance. Beijing is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, and huge stone walls and gates. Its art treasures and universities have long made the city a centre of culture and art in China.

Sunworld Hotel Beijing is located in the Dongcheng district, the center of downtown Beijing at the corner of Wangfujing and Dengshikou (the 'Golden Street' and 'Silver Street' of Beijing). Sunworld Hotel Beijing is near many famous historical and cultural landmarks, including the Forbidden City, Tian An Men. There are many shopping malls in close vicinity. There are also many places of interest to visit like the “Siheyuan” (the Chinese Bungalow). The 308 guest rooms and suites have been designed with a traditional but refined style.

Contemporary Wangfujing Street, renowned for its shopping, is just around the corner; but down the back alleys that lead away from it are traditional restaurants and bars in an atmosphere of Old China. Just to the north, the city’s back lakes district has also survived development, and offers wandering lanes and old houses along a rambling series of lakes—a good escape from the city centre.

ENTRY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS FOR CHINA: A valid passport and visa are required to enter China and must be obtained from Chinese Embassies and Consulates before traveling to China. Americans arriving without valid passports and the appropriate Chinese visa are not permitted to enter and will be subject to a fine and immediate deportation at the traveler's expense. Please visit the US Department of State's website for information on how to obtain your visa.
