I DO BELIEVE THE BIZ BETWEEN YOU AND ME WITHOUT ANY 'MIDDLE-COST' WILL BE BENEFICIAL FOR BOTH,THAT IS WHY I LAUNCHED THIS WEBSITE .
When people traval to a new city or country , they want to get some information about the destination in advance. you may buy a book ,googleing or ask friends who has been there before , but you definitely can get the most updated and geniune info. from my website and e-mail me , as a proffesional tour guide since 2004 and a local of Beijing , I`d love to share all my knowledge and offer all kinds of tour service for you .
Many people who come to Beijing asked me the same question about the city name :" Did you call your city Peking before ? " I reply :" No ." But why many foreign books ,medias say that .I explain the whole story : Beijing means north capital , the city has almost 20 different names in different dynasties in the past 3000 years ,after the last dynasty Qing collapsed in 1911 , the capital of China moved to the city Nanjing (means south capital ) ,then Beijing has to be changed to Beiping (means north peace ) ,because "JING" this character means capital . At that time , foreigners gave Chinese a phonetic system by English letters which Chinese never use . But reading Chinese in English way can not pronounce Chinese articulately , so made the rest of the world can not say it properly . It is a tiny instance , but makes me think to accurately describe a different culture , to comeover obstacles of cultures , to eliminate misunderstandings , to melt mistrust , to give visitors the truth are crucial important for China . So I should take this obligation to give you a panorama of Beijing and China.
