Beijing (/beI'dZING/bay-JING;[9][10] Chinese pronunciation: Bei Jing; Mandarin pronunciation (listen)), also known as Peking[11] (/pi.kING/pee-KING),[12]), is the capital of China's People's Republic of China. It is home to more than 21 million people and occupies an area of 16,410.5 hectares (6336 sq. mi.). [13] Its built-up area is the third largest in China, after Guangzhou, Shanghai and Shanghai. However, it is slightly larger, with 3 Hebei districts (Sanhe Dachang Hui, Zhuozhou, and Dachang Hui) being conurbated, but not yet agglomerated by Beijing's Miyun or Pinggu Districts. It is located in Northern China and is managed as a municipality by the State Council. There are 16 districts that include urban, suburban and rural areas. Beijing is surrounded by Hebei Province, with Tianjin to its southeast. Together the three divisions make up the Jingjinji megalopolis. It also forms the country's capital region. [16]

Beijing is a global capital and one of the most important centres for culture and diplomacy, finance, politics, economics, business, education and research. Beijing, a megacity in China, is second in terms of urban population to Shanghai. It is also the country's cultural, educational and political centre. [17] Beijing is the home of the majority of China's state-owned enterprises. It also houses the Fortune 500's largest companies, and the four largest financial institutions in terms of total assets. [18][19] Beijing is known as the \"billionaire capital\" of the world, with the largest number of billionaires residing in the city. [20][21] The airport is also a hub for high-speed rail, national highway, expressway and railway networks. Since 2010, Beijing Capital International Airport has been Asia's second busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic. [22] The city's subway system is also the busiest and longest.
