The climate of Beijing (China)
Beijing is one of the most important cities in China. Beijing is located in the province of Hebei. The city operates as an autonomous province, directly under the administration of the government. The city is a bulwark of ancient history, everywhere you walk you come across buildings that have played an important role during the history of China. The forbidden City, where the emperors held court for centuries; the enormous Tiananman Square where students protested and the more recent Olympic Stadium. Many parks also are a silent witness to the glorious history of China. Beihai Park used to be an imperial garden and is now open to the public to enjoy the many beautiful plants and flowers. Beijing has a warm continental climate. Because of the influence of the Asian monsoon summers are long, hot and moist here. During the winter the wind comes from the north, supplying cold air from Siberia and causing extremely cold days. Because of the drought during the winter dust storms may form. This is not conducive to air quality. Although the authorities have done their utmost to improve the air quality (especially for the Olympic Games) it is still unpleasant to be in Beijing on warm days.
