China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Beidaihe located 15 kilometers southwest of Qinhuangdao City and 300 kilometers east of Beijing, is a seaside resort area on the Bohai Gulf. During the nineteenth century, the craggy coastline and beaches attracted Europeans living in nearby Tianjin, who constructed villas and bungalows here, transforming a fishing village into an enjoyable seaside getaway.
It soon became a resort for senior Party officials and was chiefly well-liked with Communist leaders in the 1970s. During this age diverse sections of the coast were cordoned off for foreigners and senior officials. In the present day the divisions have gone but the quaint European bungalows and grand villas remain and Beidaihe is tremendously popular with Beijing residents.
Beidaihe is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
