The China Headquarter is located in the state-of-the-art Gateway building in Beijing’s Chaoyang district. The vibrant culture, amazing food, seven of UNESCO’s forty-eight world heritage sites and millions of people make Beijing, China’s capital, one of the most interesting and intense metropolises in the world.


Life in Beijing.

  • Over 18 million people live in China’s fascinating capital and if you count the area surrounding Beijing, the population reaches a whopping 24,9 million. In this mega metropolis and in a country where the population famously say, “plans can’t keep up with change” it comes as no surprise that no two days are alike.
  • Beijing is the Centre of Chinese culture and politics and holds a prominent position in international business. It’s China’s first post-industrial city and is home to many of Fortune 500 companies and corporate heavyweights.
  • The city occupies an exciting space between the distant past and the future, and with a history dating back three millennia, there are many opulent palaces, historic sights, parks and gardens to visit. Beijing boasts not one but seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Forbidden City, Ming Tombs and the Great Wall. 
  • The art scene is also very developed here and in the words of the New York Times, “Beijing’s art scene has already become a staple destination on the sightseeing itinerary”. Events like Beijing Design Week and venues like 798 Art District – a 50 year old decommissioned military factory building which now functions as an exhibition centre for modern art, the city is a natural destination for everyone who is interested in art and culture. 
  • Monthly magazines such as Time Out Beijing and the Beijinger provide updates about the many concerts, plays and other cultural events that are offered each month in the city.
  • Beijing’s food culture is every bit as contemporary and international as those found in other big cities. The delicious, affordable Asian cuisine, including the city’s most internationally famous dish, roast Peking duck is at its best in Beijing, and can also be experienced at Wangfujing’s famous snack street where almost everything is speared on sticks, from fruit and dumplings to seahorse.
  • Beijing is also home to several major shopping malls, such as Xidan In Beijing, which has multiple malls, connected by above-street level walkways, where all the internationally well known brands are represented. As one of China’s most global metropolises, Beijing also offers a number of options when it comes to excellent international education institutions.
