Outside of Beijing City lies the City Province (Municipality) of Beijing, where there are even more worthwhile monumental, historical and scenic sites to visit and enjoy.
Starting with an Introduction and Overview of the Cities' Province and its facts and figures, this text Reviews the highlights and Main Scenic Sights to be visited in and around The Province. From those Monuments located nearest Beijing and those most well-known, to the remote and more obscure this pages gives a short but thorough introduction to Beijing City Province and its historic Monuments.

Covering a surface area of 16 Thousand 800 Square Kilometers (6.487 sq. Miles) Beijing Municipality is one of China's 4 large City Provinces. To the South-East lies Tianjin Municipality and all other surrounding area's are taken up by Hebei Province.
Today Beijing Municipality counts some 15 Million + inhabitants, spread over 16 Districts and 2 Townships. For proper understanding and easy navigation and travel throughout the Province however, it is easier to see things in a slightly simplified perspective.
For all practical purposes, the recently "unlocked" City Province can be divided into Three Rings or Layers. The Inner Suburbs, the 6 Outer Suburbs and the 4 Rural Districts of Beijing.
The first Layer consists of the Inner Suburbs of Beijing, some of who's Monuments used to demand quite some traveling time and in practice lay at quite some traveling distance from the Ancient Walls of the Ming and Ching Dynasty Capital, and the Central City Center within the 2nd ring road.

The Inner Suburbs are Chaoyang District (朝阳区: Cháoyáng Qū),  Haidian District (海淀区: Hǎidiàn Qū), Fengtai District (丰台区: Fēngtái Qū) and Shijingshan District (石景山区: Shíjǐngshān Qū). Find them described and with photos on their own dedicated pages. The Inner suburbs were once too badly connected to be visited at leisure, but the upgrades to the city transportation system have changed this situation.
