While Shanghai serves as China`s economic centre, Beijing is its cultural and political capital. Since being awarded the 2008 Olympic Games, Beijing has undergone a dynamic growth and modernization process that has changed the city within a short period of time. The city has many UNESCO World Heritage Listed sites that are of particular cultural and historical significance. The Imperial Palace is a wonderful museum that exhibits the palace treasures.
